Daffodil and Sunflower Class – Year Two

 

Hello and welcome back for another exciting year in Maesglas Primary School.

We are pleased to be given the opportunity to be part of their learning this year.

As you can appreciate this is an important year for your children as they will finish the Foundation Phase learning and be assessed ready for entry to Key Stage 2. Therefore, we have high expectations of the children and the progress they need to make. Please make sure that your children are in school every day! We will be encouraging the children to take control of their own learning too and recognising when they need to practise something again.

We will continue to provide you with information about how you can support your child at home and please feel free to come and see us if you have any questions.



 Meet the team!

Class 3 - Miss Morgan - Year 1 and Year 2

Mrs Falvey is the Daffodil Class teacher. 

Class 4 - Miss Coldrick - Year 2

Miss Coldrick is the Sunflower Class teacher. 

Mrs Din - Teaching Assistant.

Mrs Johnson - Teaching Assistant.


In Maths we will be learning, addition and subtraction problems including the use of money, ordering 2 and 3 digit numbers, doubles and halves within 20, 2, 5 and 10 times tables - we will also be dividing using these numbers, time - o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to times with the digital time, 2D and 3D shapes. It would be very helpful if you could help your child practise their maths at home. You can also find maths games and activities on www.topmarks.co.uk to play with your child


In Literacy we will be doing lots of different types of writing during the year.  We will be writing stories, letters, facts and much more! You can help develop this further at home by encouraging your child to write shopping lists, birthday cards and messages all of which they will enjoy!!  We will also be working really hard on the presentation of our work and we will even start to join up some of our letters


P.E Lessons are on Monday afternoon. The children will continue to extend their skills in gymnastics, games, athletics and dance over the year. Please can you make sure that all of the school clothes have their name in. Just a quick reminder that jewellery should not be worn in school for safety reasons!


Outside play - The children will have access to outside play for most of their sessions so it is important that they bring coats every day. Please put their names in their coats so there are no mix ups. Thanks!


Homework Folders

We will continue to send weekly homework home with your child. This will be to consolidate work completed in class, research new topics or work specifically aimed at practising a skill learnt in school. Alongside this we will also be sending home comprehension homework for your children to complete and return. Comprehension activities encourage the children to think about what they are reading, infer what the writers or characters are thinking and look at different types of text. As well as this we will also send home weekly spellings for the children to practise. As always we hope you find these activities fun to complete together. Please ensure all homework is completed in pencil and use the opportunity to reinforce correct letter and number formation.

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and can be handed back in again by the following Wednesday.  


Reading

Please continue the fantastic work from last year. Reading is still so important for the children’s development with their language, imagination and writing. By now most children understand how to decode and blend words and are confidently using their phonics as a tool. The focus this year will be to develop their understanding of what they read and to look at a variety of different texts. This will be through Guided Reading sessions and individual reading. We will also send home question prompts which provide you with more information about what the next steps are for your child. These are for your use.


Water Bottles

We try to encourage the children to drink plenty during the school day and although we do provide some drinking cups it leads to a greater independence and confidence if the children can take control of their own water. Please can the children bring a named water bottle to school.


Thank you for taking the time to read this information.  We look forward to working with you, to create a happy and fun environment where your child will continue to develop and grow. Any questions then just pop in and see us. 


Your Year Two team.
