Year 2 2020 - 2021

Mrs van Zyl

A very warm welcome to Year 2! 
It is wonderful to be back in school with our Middleforth friends. This year our teachers are Mrs van Zyl, Mrs Darbyshire and Mrs Garner.  Our topic for this half term is Street Detectives, a Geography and History based topic.  We will be looking at our local area, using Google Earth, maps and photographs and learning about its history.  We look forward to sharing our learning and achievements with you via SeeSaw. 


Reading books:
Reading books are changed on a Monday and Thursday and should be returned in the plastic wallet / bag.  At this stage reading records will not be used during the COVID-19 pandemic, instead we encourage children to record  their reading journey via SeeSaw to share with their Class Teacher.

PE will take place on a Friday.  We are very fortunate to have a Sports Coach in this term to teach Gymnastics.  Children are asked to come to school on a Friday dressed in PE clothing and trainers, please can all earrings be removed prior to coming to school on the day or covered with tape at home.  Children with long hair should please have it tied up for PE lessons.

Homework will be sent out via SeeSaw on a Thursday, consisting of a piece of Maths work and phonics linked to the learning taken place that week.  Children will also be set a weekly challenge!  If they achieve this they will palce their name on the challenge tree in the classroom and receive a stamp on their challenge tree card.  Details will be sent out weekly via SeeSaw.

 A homework journal will be sent home with each child for them to record any work they have completed in it.  The work could then then be photographed and uploaded to SeeSaw.  Please do not return homework books to school.  Inside the cover of the homework book will be your child's login details for Purple Mash and Phonics Bug.

Water bottles:
Fresh water should be bought to school daily.  Please could children practise opening and closing the tops of their water bottle.  Please ensure water bottles are named, many thanks.

If you don't have a login for SeeSaw please let me know so I can arrange one for you.

Please ensure all jumpers / coats are clearly labelled, thank you.
