The Year 2 Harvest production
Here are some of the songs we are practising for our Harvest production. Remember, if you practise them at home, you can put them in your home learning diary to get credits.
Don't forget to practise your lines too!
Our first topic in our year 2 learning journey is
The year 2 area needed sprucing up after a long summer. We have made it bright and vibrant to attract some cool and funky monsters to visit us!
We are enthusiastic to meet some to get to know them more as we know there are so many nice monsters out there that get a bad name!
Reading books and diaries need to be in school every day and go home every night.
When you read with your child this needs to be acknowledged in the diary. Let us know if the book is finished and it will be changed. If you have only read a couple of pages, that is fine, just note the pages that have been read and we can send the book back home to continue with.
Reading is highly encouraged and is fundamental in your children strengthening their ability to learn. Do not feel pressured to finish books, a couple of pages and discussions, about what they have read, all contribute to developing confidence and fluency.
Home learning online
Your children have logins in the front of their red home learning diaries. These logins can be used to access different programs that we use in school and could be used at home to further their learning. Please let us know if you need new logins or you need any support with these.
This is a website where children can access books that are tailored to the book band that they are reading within school. It also includes questions to check their understanding and gives rewards too! This can be accessed on tablets as well as laptops. This reading can then be recorded in their diaries to earn more merits.
This is another educational website that your child can access. It has games and activities for all areas of the curriculum.
This website allows the children to practise spelling rules and patterns in addition to their weekly spellings set by school.
