We have a fabulous group of Year 2 children who are always bursting with excitement to learn. Over the course of the year, the children will be slaying dragons, discovering what Samuel Pepys buried in his garden in 1666 and taking a ride on Mr Grinling's rowing boat across to his lighthouse. There is never a dull moment in our class!
Make sure you keep an eye on the Wrens class page for updates on our learning and the adventures!
Week beginning 21st June
Optional home learning-
This term we are going to be creating our own dinosaur information booklet. To support with this please research some facts about your favourite dinosaur to share with the class.
Swimming will start on a Friday this week!
This term we will be creating our own 'Wrens recommend' reading display. For this I would like to challenge the Wrens to pick a book from the home or the library to read. After they have finished the book, they can then fill out a book review- these will be available on the class page. We will then celebrate this by giving the children time to talk about what they have been reading and their recommendations for their friends. This will help to support their comprehension skills which have been a focus for this term.
Please remember you can also use the school book swap located in the big playground; we would love to encourage the use of this. Children can bring any book from home (not a school owned reading book) and swap with the books in the unit against the mobile.
The Wrens team
Our Welly walk this term will be a sponsored walk for Water Aid and will take place on Wednesday 23rd March.
A reminder of home learning expectations:
Reading (and bug words where appropriate)- Hearing your child read a minimum of three times a week. Rereading books is key to support developing fluency, confidence and comprehension. Please record in their reading record books and ensure books are in school each day.
Weekly spellings-these are added to our class page (English) and tested in school on a Friday. We will try where possible to add these to the class page on a Thursday ready for the following week to give time to begin learning over the weekend. Please can you encourage your child to practise at least 3x a week!
Professor Assessor- Each home learning quiz is active Monday-Saturday and can be completed anytime during the time period.
Times Tables - This is an optional extra for your child and would be really beneficial to help their times table fluency.
Guided Reading- I have added some extra guided reading tasks under the English home learning tab. Please
have a go if your child is at home awaiting a PCR.
