Year 2 B - Miss Hughes 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Year 2B's class page

The children have settled in to Year 2 fantastically and we’re all excited for a great year ahead! Check our class page regularly for blog updates and photos of some of the fun and exciting things we get up to in class. I will also post any important dates, events and general reminders in our blog and our class Twitter page @Plant_Hughes.

Please read on below for some key information for this year:

Reading- Children wil be given multiple reading books to take home with their School Planner. Please comment in the planner when you have listened to your child read. When children change their reading book in class they will often read with an adult before taking the book home to enjoy. I will hear all of the children read each week as part of our Guided Reading lessons.

Spellings- New spelling lists will be given out every Friday. We will then complete some work on the rule during the following week in school, before a class test each Friday. Please discuss and practise the rule at home.

Homework- Reading books and spelling words will be sent weekly. Any additional maths and English homework will be sent home on a Friday and can be returned any day of the following week. There will be a big emphasis on learning times tables in maths and English homework will often be some grammar, punctuation or reading comprehension work.

P.E- We have two P.E sessions each week - one outdoors (Wednesday) and one indoors (Thursday). Children should come to school wearing their PE kit  and remain in this attire for the whole day. Our school PE consists of: a plain white t-shirt (or one with the school crest), plain black tracksuit bottoms and trainers with suitable ankle support (no plimsolls). PE days are not own clothes day and we encourage children to wear the appropriate kit as mentioned above.

Water bottles- It would be brilliant if every child has a named, water bottle in school to enable them to drink as much as possible during the school day, especially when the weather is warm and for after P.E lessons.

 

Home Learning

Attached is a suggested timetable for home learning. All of our home learning tasks will be on google classroom.

Your child's log in information is on the inside of their Plantation Planners. Please get in touch if you are struggling to access this or can't find your child's log in details. 

A weekly zoom meeting will take place each Monday at 9.30, the details for this will be on google classroom.

Thank you so much for your support, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Miss. Hughes.
