Welcome to 2LA September 2020!

Welcome to 2LA! I am really looking forward to seeing you all in September in our 2LA classroom. We have lots of fun learning to look forward to after the summer holidays.

You will be getting a welcome booklet from me soon with photographs of the classroom and entrances so that you can look at it over the summer holidays.

What will it be like in Year 2?

Some things will be the same…..

You will still be with all of your 1P friends:

You will still play in the same playground that you use in Year 1:

Some things will be a little bit different….

You will come in the 2LA entrance and use the 2LA cloakroom and toilets:

The Year 2 classrooms look a little bit different to the Year 1 classrooms. There are tables and chairs, a book corner and storage for all our equipment. We still have a few toys and games to play with when we have choosing time or wet play such as lego, puzzles, top trumps and other games. We have special chair sacks on our chairs to keep all our things in so we don’t need trays.

At lunchtime, Year 2 eat in the dining room:

Staff in Year 2

There will be some familiar and some new grown ups working in Year 2:

  • Mrs Wilson teaches the class every Tuesday. She generally teaches the class science, computing, RE and some PSHE lessons.
  • Mr Durkin supports all the lessons in 2LA in the mornings. In the afternoons, he works with both Year 2 classes teaching phonics and working with small groups and individuals on interventions. He also runs a Year 2 after school craft club.
  • Mrs Lace is the main class teacher and Assistant Headteacher.

Year 2 Learning

We do lots of the same lessons in Year 2 as you already do in Year 1. We love reading stories, drama and hands on learning in Year 2 so try to do this as much as possible.

You could look at our September blog from last year to see some of the fun and exciting things we get up to:

Getting Ready for Year 2

We know that this year has been very different so our first priority in September will be to make sure that children are happy and settled. We will be doing lots of work on basic skills at the start of Year 2 and it would be helpful if you could start thinking about some of these over the long summer holidays.

To get ready for Year 2 learning, it would be great if families could work on the following things:

  • counting in 2s, 5s and 10s
  • number bonds to 10
  • Writing full names
  • Practising reading and writing Y1 common exception words

I am really looking forward to being your Year 2 teacher and I hope you are looking forward to being in 2LA in September too!

We hope you are having a good week so far. Are you a bee expert yet?

Maths

There is a great game to play online to practise reading scales: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/mostlyPostie/index.html

Lesson 3: measure mass in kilograms

There are other mass activities in your pack to complete. Feel free to complete these as you wish.

Lesson 4: compare volume

Find some different containers. How much water do you think each will hold? Which will hold the most/least? Fill up each container and pour into a measuring jug to find out?

Watch the video and complete the activities.

English- Bee book

Task 1: Labelling a bee

Label the bee and write an explanation about each part.

Task 2: Life cycle

Watch the video of a bee life cycle. Warning- it’s a bit gross!

Create your life cycle diagram. Then write an explanation of each of the four stages under headings.
