Dear Parents, Carers and all the Year 2 children,
Welcome back! We'd like to wish everyone a happy new year. Sadly, we said goodbye to Mrs Lawrence at the end of last term and we welcome Mrs Cochlin, who will be working on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons. We are both very excited to continue the wonderful learning that takes place in Year 2.
Our page will continue to have a new digital display uploaded each fortnight so you can see the learning that has taken place.
PE this term, continues to be on a Thursday and Friday so PE kits (indoor and outdoor) need to be in school; this includes navy shorts and joggers, a white crew neck t shirt, socks and trainers.
Homework will continue weekly, see below:
Reading - the school expectation is that all children will read a minimum of 3 times a week on separate days, with a conversation about what has been read followed by an adult signature and date.
Spellings - the spelling rule or pattern for the week is taught on a Monday and all children will be tested on a Friday.
NumBots or Times Table Rock Stars - the school expectation is that children will play 5 games in 'Garage' to ensure they are practising the timetables that have been set. For NumBots, the minimum requirement is 15 minutes per week, which really builds and strengthens their number bond knowledge and supports their number fluency.
Our creative curriculum, this term, will be all about London, specifically The Great Fire of London and The Plague.
We are fortunate to have several volunteers that will be helping us with our learning throughout the week.
As with all teachers at Shephalbury Park School, please do come and see us on the playground before or after school if you need to tell us something or just want clarification about a school issue. If you feel you would prefer an appointment to talk in private or have a lengthy conversation then do not hesitate to ask for an appointment.
