Welcome to Year 2!
Parents, Carers, Pupils and Visitors, welcome!
We hope that you had a restful Christmas break and are ready for the term ahead. Although it’s not the start to the term that we all had in mind, we are still determined to make it engaging, informative and successful!
The children worked incredibly hard throughout the Autumn term and really gave their all. We hope to see the same level of enthusiasm and engagement as we enter a period of Home Learning.
Each week, we will publish our weekly learning below, including an overview and resources. Please encourage the children to complete the work to the best of their ability.
Share your work with us through Class Dojo via the portfolios or through our class email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on.
Please keep all paper copies of work completed, as we will be putting them into your books after half-term, when we are back together.
Make sure you keep an eye on Class Dojo for regular updates and photos.
If you have any further queries, please feel free to send a message to Miss Honeyborne via Class Dojo or email us via the class email.

- Encourage the children to read through the book and focus on reading the words accurately as well as breaking down and blending any tricky words.
- Make sure that the children understand the meaning of each word.
Second time reading:
- Read through the book for a second time, focusing on the comprehension of the story.
Think about the following key questions:
The children may like to complete a book review using the review sheets which I have attached below. There is a fictional and non-fictional version, so make sure that you choose the right one!
Year 2 Class 'Book Club'
As introduced within our recent Zoom call, we will be beginning a 'Year 2 Book Club'. So many of you are doing some fantastic reading at home, reading exciting stories and interesting information texts. We want to know your thoughts on the books that you are reading, so that others have a place to search when they are looking for a new book to read.
Please complete one of the Book Review sheets, available above this post on our Class Page. Then send them to Miss Honeyborne, along with your score for the book out of 10. Miss Honeyborne will then upload them for others to read, to help them in choosing their new book.
