Welcome to Year 2

 

Home Learning Due - Thursday 28th February

 

Thank you for everyone’s hard work in creating such fantastic models for our Great Fire of London topic. The children were excited to see how the fire spread across the houses and were amazed at how quickly they burned. The video has been uploaded and can be viewed on the school website.

For home learning during the half term holiday, we would like the children to write a diary of some of the exciting things that the children have been up to. The diaries could include photos, drawings or objects collected. It should also include at least a paragraph clearly explaining what they have been doing.

 

Here are some of the things the children should include in their writing;

  • full stops, capital letters and use question marks when required

  • Use past tense mostly correctly and consistently

  • Use conjunctions (and/or/ but/ when/ if/ that/ because)

  • segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of these words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others

  • spell many core words correctly

     

Children doing more than is expected should;

 

  • write effectively and coherently, drawing on their reading to inform the vocabulary and grammar of their writing

  • make simple additions, revisions and proof-reading corrections to their own writing

  • use the punctuation taught at key stage 1 mostly correctly ( ! , ’ ? )

  • spell most core words

  • add suffixes to spell most words correctly in their writing (e.g. –ment, –ness, –ful, –less, –ly)

 

 

 

 

Thank you for your support.

A new topic has been loaded to Maths with Parents. You will now find 'Division by sharing' activities and games for the children to complete. Please remember that these do not have to be recorded or handed in to school.

Enjoy!
