Welcome to our Year Two page!

Miss Wallace, Miss Swift, Mrs Green, Miss Truman and Mrs Haddon can't wait to see what surprises this year brings. We have lots of wonderful learning in store for the Autumn term, beginning with our topic 'The Secret Garden' and then moving on to 'Beat, Band, Boogie!'. Please read on below to find out more. 

Our Current Topic - Beat, Band, Boogie!

 

Have you got pulse, rhythm and perfect pitch? In this topic we will be exploring all things musical, including marching bands, instruments and musical history. We will be learning how sound is made and discussing questions such as 'when does noise become music?'

Our topic will end with a performance to parents of our very own chart topper!

Reading Focus this term

Our reading focus this week is on retrieving information from a text.

Our current book and RIC questions are:

Writing Focus this term

This term we will be going back to basics, focussing on sentence punctuation and spelling.

We are using the stimulus of Grieg's 'Hall of the Mountain King' to write our own adventure quest stories. Watch the videos below!

Maths Focus this term

We are currently learning about multiplication and division. So far this year we have learnt:

  • place value of numbers to 100
  • how to partition a number
  • expanded column addition
  • expanded column subtraction

We will also be focussing on money in our 'Ray's Adventures' sessions, so please encourage discussions about different coins and their values at home.

Children also continue to learn their times table and division facts. Please come and see your teacher if you require any further support with this.

SATs Information

During May, all children in Year Two will be required to sit statutory assessment tests. To help you understand more about this process and the standard required by the end of Year Two, we are arranging an informal meeting within the spring term. Please watch this space for dates and time.

Last update: 2017-11-08

Your child needs to bring their book bag, P.E kit, a water bottle and a coat. On a Wednesday they will also need to return their homework book. Your child will be provided with a toolkit complete with the stationery they will require for learning.

Children in Year Two are eligible for free school meals and are provided with a healthy snack for break times.

There are many ways to contact us! We are always available at drop off and collection times if you wish to speak to us in person. Messages can also be sent in to school via the Boomerang Book, although please be aware that these are checked weekly rather than daily. If you have an urgent message, please drop us an email to myteacher2@sherrier.leics.sch.uk. We will aim to reply to emails within 24 hours.

Children in Year Two are responsible to choosing and changing their own books under the supervision of an adult. In order to do this they must put their book bag in the correct box in the classroom. Please ensure that you have signed to say that your child has read and needs to change their book.

P.E

Our P.E. days are changing!

We will now be doing PE every Friday and alternate Mondays and Wednesdays, but please make sure your child has their kit in school every day in case there are any further opportunities that arise.  

Our P.E. will mostly be indoors for this term, so a white t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls are ideal.

Please also make sure long hair is tied up on these days and that children have tape to cover earrings. 

Our Homework

We have a new bingo grid! Homework is due in on a Wednesday and will be returned to you on a Thursday.

Please find a copy of our bingo grid here.

For each piece of homework the children complete, they collect homework stamps on a chart. The more stamps children collect, the more opportunity they have to win a prize at the end of the year.

Please follow our Twitter page to see more updates about our current learning and other important information.

Our Christian Value in Year 2!

 
This year, Year Two will be working  as ambassadors for the Christian Value "Courage". Throughout the year we will be exploring the other values adopted by Sherrier pupils but we will be focusing on what it means to be a courageous in class, on the playground and at home. If your child impresses you with how courageous they've been at home do share this with us by making a note in their Boomerang book so that we can celebrate it in class.
 
 
In class we will be talking about the value of courage...
 
   Courage to own up when you are in the wrong
   Courage to say 'no' when everyone else is pressing you to do something you do not want to do
   Courage to stick at a task even when it is taking time and is beginning to become boring or difficult
   Courage to be first to volunteer or stand up and be counted
   Courage to admit you don't know or understand something
   Courage to stand by your beliefs despite mockery or being in a minority
   Courage to take part in something, to give it a go, although you are fearful and unsure of yourself
 

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh (by A.A. Milne)
 
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.C.S. Lewis
