Year 2 Fun Run for Shelter Cymru

Congratulations to everyone! You raised an amazing £433.89 for Shelter Cymru to help homeless people in Wales. What a brilliant effort from all of the children who planned and organised this themselves!

Well done to all our runners, sponsors, scorekeepers, timers, starters, stoppers, leaf-sweepers, poster artists, form designers, planners and drinks station managers!

Some helpful websites

Children can access their home learning and homework on this website.

Bug Club E-books

Just before October half term, our school purchased a new home reading tool called 'Bug Club'. This is a fun and interactive tool to support your child's reading. Recently, your child should have brought home a letter with their login details. Each week your child will be allocated some e-books to read at home as and when they can.  Allocated books will match the book band level your child is currently working on and reading in school. When your child is reading a book on Bug Club, please encourage them to look out for the bug icon throughout the book. Each time they click on this icon they will be asked a question about the book. This is an important part of reading. Sometimes a book will have numerous bug icons to click on so keep an eye out for as many as you can! Please email your class teacher if you need your log in details.

Oxford Owls E-books

If you are looking for even more e-books then why not visit the Oxford Owls website.

Lots of you signed up to this website during Year 1.

You may wish to continue using this as it is a wonderful resource.

It shouldn't take you too long to create an account if you haven't already done so.

Please note there are only a limited selection of books for free now however they are still great fun to read!

If you are not sure what book band is appropriate for your child then please email your class teacher.

Snack

 

This year we are asking all children in Years 2 to 6 to bring in their own healthy snack each day.

 

Please make sure their are no nuts or nut based products in your child's lunchbox or snack.

 

If your child has grapes, we would be very grateful if your could chop them in half.

 

Many thanks for all your cooperation.

 

:-)

 

Topic

 

Our current topic is

 

'Making Waves'

 

We will be learning about sea creatures, pirates, the seaside and many many more areas.

 

Pupil voice will play a big part in what direction this topic goes!

 

We will provide more information about this topic throughout.

 

We will explore this topic for most of the Autumn term.

 

:-)

Outdoor clothing

 

If possible, we would be very grateful if your child has access to weather appropriate shoes and clothing in school throughout the year.

 

E.g. Wellies, waterproof trousers and a warm raincoat.

 

We do not expect anyone to go and buy waterproof clothing specifically for this though!

 

Any clothing can stay on your child’s peg or on the wellie stand.

 

Many thanks! 

 

:-)

PE

 

Year 2 will have PE on a FRIDAY.

 

This year we are asking all children to come to school wearing their PE kit.

 

Therefore, please can your child wear their PE to school every Friday.

 

Children can wear a school jumper or cardigan over their PE kit if they are cold.

 

Any changes, we will inform you via ParentMail.

 

For more information about Year 2, please see the PowerPoint below.
