Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

We are really excited to welcome you back to school as Year Twos. We have been fortunate to get to know some of you who have been in school already! For those of you who haven’t been able to join us, please don’t worry, as school will be just as fun as it always was and we are looking forward to seeing you!

Next Year, we are starting an exciting new phonics scheme and we cannot wait to play all the games with you. Over Summer, it would be amazing if you could go on the website and even YouTube to watch some of the fantastic Monster Phonics videos.

Our year group theme is Disney’s Inside Out. We would love for you to watch the film, if possible, and make your very own Inside Out characters. We would love for you to share photos of these on the Year Two email address ready for September.

 

Don’t forget to stay safe and enjoy yourselves. Enjoy your summer holidays!

A huge thank you from Miss Heaton, Mrs Banbury & Mrs Forster, Mrs Gough, Mrs Cha Cha, Mrs Braiden & Mrs Plomer 😊

Reading, Writing & Maths - Home Learning Archive

As it is the end of term on Friday 17th July, this is the last set of home learning that will be uploaded to the website. We really hope that you have enjoyed the activities so far over the last few weeks.

This week you will find the following activities for you to complete:

  • A ‘Goodbye Year 2, Hello Year 3’ writing booklet. In here, you will find lots of fun activities to fill in all about your time in Year 2 including your favourite memories, the friends you have made, your funniest moment and your achievements of which we are sure there will be many! It also includes activities for you to complete about moving up to Year 3 including what you are most looking forward to, what you would like to learn next year and to tell them a little bit about what makes you special.
  • A Maths activity booklet – Using this booklet, you will be able to revise some of the Maths from this year to help prepare you for Year 3. Try your very best to do as much as you can but don’t worry if you have forgotten some things. There is an answer booklet so someone can mark your work for you or help you if you are stuck.
  • A Maths Mystery booklet – This week’s mystery is called The Mystery at Dragonspire Castle! Good luck!

We really hope to see you in school for transition day on either Monday 20th July or Wednesday 22nd July where you can meet your new teachers and see your new classrooms.

Year 2, although it was a much shorter year than we expected, you have made us very proud. We wish you all the very best of luck for your first year in the Juniors next year and we hope you have a fantastic summer holiday! See you in September!

Home Learning

We find ourselves in the very unusual situation of having to ask the children to work at home for the coming weeks.

As a team, year 2 will be contactable via our year group email:

yr2.staff@warrenparkapps.co.uk

This will be checked daily during term time and between the hours of 9am and 3pm. If you have any questions regarding the workbook or the home learning pack, drop us a line and we will do our best to support you with an answer.


To help support your child at home please view our

Our Africa topic:

We have been learning all about Africa as part of our geography topic. Here are some ideas of activities that you could do at home to explore this topic further:

  • Junk model an African animal (e.g. an African elephant made from a milk bottle).
  • Paint or draw pictures of African animals.
  • Create an African animal fact file.
  • Design an African bead necklace.

Other African activities can be found in the activity pack.
