Welcome to the Year 2 class page.
We are now at the end of term and the end of the strangest school year we have ever known! We want to thank you for all your good wishes, cards and presents, as well as for all your effort and resilience over the past few months. We are definitely ready for a rest now and we are sure you and your parents feel the same, but we are both looking forward to seeing you back in school in September and being your teachers again in Year 3.
Mrs Treacher and Mrs Barnett
Mrs Bishop sends you her love, thanks and very best wishes too.
For the time being we are keeping our class padlet page open, in case you want to look back at any of the photos or messages on it. We really enjoyed finding out about what you were doing while we couldn't see you in school. In addition, all of the activities set over the past few months are still available in the documents sections below, just in case you want to do any of them.
Try and read as often as possible over the holidays. You can choose a book you have already read and know you enjoy, books from school or a new book that you haven't read yet. You can also read magazines, newspapers, comics, recipes, instructions for board games and many other texts.
If you have not yet completed your 'Spreading My Wings' booklet, please try to do so as soon as possible and send it back to us, either through the post or by dropping it into the school letter box. We will be going into school over the last two weeks in July, so will be able to collect them and then we will be using them for a special display in the classroom, that you will be able to see when you return in September.
Please remember to THINK, SAY, WRITE, CHECK and use your loveliest handwriting.
Handwriting, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar:
As you know, it is important that you form all the letters correctly, the right way round and the correct size. Please make sure that you check this when you are writing and also remember to hold your pencil correctly. Can you show the correct way to an adult? Remember it is the tripod hold - thumb and index finger holding the pencil and the other fingers supporting under the pencil.
Common Exception Words
Over the holidays, please make sure that you really can spell as many as possible of the Y1 and Y2 words on the list below. In the documents section for week commencing 1st June, there are two booklets for you to use. If you are absolutely certain that you always spell all of the Y1 words correctly, then you can start with the Y2 booklet. It would be a good idea to ask an adult to test you on the Y1 words first, just to make sure. In the documents section for week commencing 22nd June, there are two more booklets of activities that you might like to try.
In the documents section for week commencing 13th July, there are two activities - a summer booklet, so you can practise everything that you have been doing over the past few weeks and a mystery to solve, called 'The Mystery of the Sandcastle Stamper'. If you haven't done them yet, you might like to have a go over the summer.
