Home Learning

 

It is very important to support your child's learning at home. You can do this in many ways, including sharing books with your child, supporting them with spelling and other pieces of work that is sent home and playing educational games, including learning online. With this in mind, I have put together a list of useful websites for supporting your child at home. Your child's log in details for sites we have subscribed to are in your child's reading record. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Spring Term 2020

 

After a very busy first half term, learning all about Africa, we have come back refreshed and ready to start some new topics. Our Topic for this half term is People Who Care For Us, focusing in on the life of Florence Nightingale and how she nursed the soldiers during the Crimean War. We compare her story with that of Mary Seacole thinking about how their experiences were so different and why.

 

We recently held a parents' information evening as preparation for SATs 2020, if you were unable to make it, please see the PPT added to give you some updated information about how the assessments work and what you can do at home to help. 

Class Assembly on The Great Fire of London.

Wow, what a great class assembly!

 

Year 2 were fantastic in this morning's class assembly, entertaining us all with super singing, fantastic dancing, wonderful recorder playing and amazing acting. They retold events of The Great Fire in 1666 with confidence, demonstrating everything they have learnt over the half term.

Nature Scientists

Today we became nature scientists, looking for microhabitats in our nature area. We explored the area and used magnifying glasses to observe the living things that we found and where they lived. We used identification cards to name the plants and animals and used this information to draw conclusions about what lives where and why.

Elf Run

 

We have been very busy little elves this morning, running around our school running track to raise as much money as we can for St John's Hospice. It was hard work but a lot of fun!

Hoghton Tower

What a wonderful day we had at Hoghton Tower today!

 

The day began with a grand tour of the house, where we saw the rooms that King James I stayed in, and where Prince Philip slept during his visit in the 1980's. They were very grand! Some of the children then became 'smelly peasants' and had to pay 5 shillings to touch the Queen's hand so that they might be healed of their diseases! We then spent some time in the great hall where we were knighted by the queen, in recognition of our achievements. After lunch, we walked through the underground passageway, all the way to the dungeons, which were very cold and damp. 

 

The children behaved fantastically well and asked and answered some great questions. We had a lovely day!

Fire Safety Talk

Today we received a visit from Morecambe Fire Service. They talked to us about fire safety and how we can keep ourselves safe. We thought about making a fire plan and acted out what we should do in the event of a fire.

Welcome to Year 2!!

Hello and welcome to Year 2! I hope that you have all had a lovely time over the summer and are ready to start the new school year. As there are lots of new challenges and exciting approaches to learning in Year 2, I have put together a little bit of information to give you an idea about what you and your child can expect this year, and provide you with a few other pieces of information that I thought you might find useful. I am very much looking forward to getting to know you all and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me, either at the end of the school day or by filling in the contact form below. Many thanks, Miss Forbes. 

 

Reading

In order to continue to make good progress, it is very important that you listen to your child read each day. If you are short on time, just a few pages is enough, with a focus on quality rather than quantity. At school we will attempt to hear each child read two or three times a week, so please ensure that your child has their reading book in their book bag every day. The children will also be given lots of opportunities to read, share and enjoy books at other times.

Spelling

Your child will be bringing home spellings to learn each week; using the Look, Cover, Write, Check format. They will be tested every Friday and new spellings sent home that day. 

Homework

Some homework will be sent home in addition to spelling and reading to help reinforce the learning objectives taught in class. 

Handwriting

It is important that your child learns to form their letters correctly to gain a flow with their writing. If you would like some handwriting sheets to work on at home please ask. We also have sheets to help form numbers correctly.

Class Bear

Each Friday, one child will take our class bear and a diary home for the weekend. They will be asked to take the teddy on their adventures over the weekend and record what they have done in the diary. Please return this to school on Monday so your child can share their weekend news with the class.

General Reminders

  • The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Some PE sessions will be outdoors, so we ask that all children have outdoor trainers or pumps. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school every day and that all items are clearly labelled. 
  • Any letters or reply slips which need to be returned can be put in your child’s book bag. The children are encouraged to check them each morning and give things in after the register.
  • The children are asked to bring in their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access throughout the day. The children can fill these up at the water fountain as necessary during the school day and are asked to take them home each day to ensure that they change their water regularly. Please make sure your child’s name is written clearly on their water bottle.

We thought about what we wanted in our Reading Area and voted for the ideas we liked.

So far it looks like this. We are still thinking about how to make it even better! 

We have set up a new area where we can play and pray.

VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS

 

On Monday, Year 1 spent a lovely afternoon at the Judges' Lodgings.

In the kitchen, we met the very jolly cook, Mrs Bridges and helped her to stir her Christmas pudding.

We played Victorian parlour games

We met Father Christmas and made cornucopia in the Victorian schoolroom. At the end of the day, everyone sang carols around the Christmas tree and Father Christmas came to join in!
