Our topic this half term is...Out of this World!
Take a look at our newsletter to see what we'll be getting up to this half term...
This week, we are learning to add the suffix -ing.
If a root word ends in an 'e', we must drop the e before adding -ing.
NB: The children will only be tested on the top 6 spellings.
The bottom 3 are Y2 Common Exception Words. We practise 3 of these each week. The children should be able to read and write all 45 CEW by the end of Y2.
The children can now use Spelling Shed to practise their spellings each week.
Please find their logins in their reading records.
When they log in, they can free play or use the assignments to practise each week's spellings.
The grid below shares ideas for the whole half term...you can choose as little or as much as you like to complete - one job a week? A half term project? We think one idea each week is achievable, but please just reach out to us if you want to chat. We know spending time with your little one is much more precious, so I have tried to think of ideas which will fit in nicely with family life or be a little revision of skills that we have been working on in school!
Please can we have busy bee books handed in on a Friday to be handed back out on a Monday?
Please do think of your own ideas if you’d like to, but here are a few ideas to get you started...
Here are notes, links and resources Mrs. Preston thought you'd find useful...
Please let her know if there's anything else that would be helpful to you!

I’d like to reassure you that our school classroom will be a safe, healthy and happy environment for your children. We have undergone lengthy processes and training to ensure the wellbeing of our whole school family.
Stationery - We are able to share equipment in our classroom which can be regularly cleaned but I am sure the children will be very excited to hear that they are now allowed their own pencil case! Each child will be given the necessary equipment and be encouraged to look after it themselves. This must stay in school.
Reading Books - We are now able to send reading books home for the children. The returned books will be quarantined before being sent home again with different children.
Library - Our library day is a Friday. There we will enjoy free time to explore our wonderful array of books and listening to our class story being read. Our first book is ‘The Hodgeheg’. We are working on a 2-week cycle with issuing library books due to having to quarantine our books. So on our first visit to the library, the children will be issued a book. This needs to be returned the following Friday. We will then choose our next library books the following Friday.
Wellies on Wednesdays
This year, we will be taking part in outdoor learning on alternate Wednesdays for the afternoon. This will usually be with Mrs. Fowler when Mrs. Preston has her PPA afternoon. Please may we ask that children have ready every other Wednesday (or left in school if you wish): warm/waterproof trousers to change into, a waterproof coat, which you don’t mind getting muddy, and of course, a pair of wellies! May we politely remind you that all belongings should be named to save on loss of items. If there are other days that we are using the Secret Garden, I can let you know via Twitter.
Click the header above to take you to our learning from home page, which has all the resources you will need to keep up!
Please let us know if there is anything at all we can do to support you.
SATs are the challenge for our Year 2 learners this year.
I thought it would be helpful to show you what is expected of the children by the summer term, giving you an insight of the expectations we need to set in school, and at home.
Take a look through these recent SAT papers to see what your little one will be doing next summer.
There is no need to worry about these assessments. The children think of them as 'quizzes' and the scores are only used to support our judgements as teachers. We already know your children inside out so please think of SATs as just a job we need to do to prove that's the case!
Something to keep you busy during the half term holidays...
