Welcome to the summer term 2020 and we thank you for continuing to connect with your Year 2 teachers.

We miss the children very much and welcome your connecting with us through Class Dojo to share news about your home learning experiences and to seek our guidance whenever needed.

We have re-arranged this class page and added some fresh ideas for the weeks ahead. We hope that you find it helpful and useful.

Happy learning!

Talk for Writing Booklet 

Letter Join

Encourage your child to write when they have the urge to, whatever the form of their writing. Something as simple as writing a shopping list will allow them to keep their spelling skills and writing stamina in check.

Maths Activities

Regular practice is recommended in recalling number bonds within 20 and the multiplication and division facts for the 2x, 5x and 10x tables.

Telling the time to the quarter hour, and in five minute intervals, is another area that needs regular practice.
