Year 2

Welcome to our Year 2 page!

 

We are very excited to be in Year 2 this year! We will be posting updates, homework and links on this page on a regular basis as well as the names of the children in the golden book for that week. 

 

In Year 2 you are very lucky to have 5 adults working with you. On a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday till lunchtime you will have Mrs Etheridge as your class teacher and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday you will have Mrs Joesbury as your class teacher. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Schofield, Mrs Gardener and Mrs Wildman (in a morning) in class with us every day.

 

We will be setting spellings and homework on a Friday. Homework will be due in on a Tuesday and Spelling will be tested on the following Friday.

 

We will also be changing home reading books on a Tuesday. Due to the current climate we are only changing home reader books weekly as they need to be off the shelves for 48 hours after return to school. Please make sure you bring your reading books in daily.

 

P.E will be every Wednesday and Friday. All children are to come to school in full outdoor kit on those days and to stay in them all day.

 

Please check out our Class Dojo and school Facebook page to see what we are getting up to daily. 

 

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Online Learning - January 2021

 

Good morning all, we find ourselves on another adventure into online learning and we are confident in saying we know you will all do a wonderful job as you have done in the past.

 

Today is the day that you will have to set yourself up again at home, please make sure you have somewhere comfortable to sit when you are working, you have all the equipment needed – a pencil or pen, rubber and ruler and your work space is in a quiet but central location in the house where an adult is accessible should you need their help.

 

Our online learning will start tomorrow (Wednesday 6th). I will be in touch with our schedule and the online platform we will be using – either Zoom or Google Classroom later on today. For those of you that were in school yesterday can you please spend some time today to check your Google login on your own computer/laptop/tablet/phone and let me know through Class Dojo if you are able to access this or if you have any problems with it.

 

For those of you that are receiving your packs today, once you receive them can you type into your internet search bar – Google Classroom – select the first link that appears and click on the sign in box for Google Classroom on the top right of your screen. Use the login card you have in your pack to login, accept the new user agreement and click on ‘I’m a student’. Once you have done this a grey box will appear named ‘2JE’. Click on this link. That is all you need to do for today, I will provide more information on this once a schedule has been arranged for tomorrow’s lessons.

 

Also spend some time today helping around the house – Have you made your bed this morning? Could you make lunch for your parents/carers who you are going to be spending a lot more time with? Have you put your socks in the laundry basket? Could you hang the washing up or even something as simple as give them a hug to let them know how much you appreciate all the hard work that is coming their way.

 

Please at this point do NOT touch your books as you do NOT need them today. If you choose to do any extra-curricular activities such as some art/craft based activities, sports in the garden, or reading etc please send any photos through to Class Dojo and there will be dojo points awarded.

 

Any queries please contact us via Class Dojo, School’s Facebook or the school text messaging service.
