Butterflies (Year 2)

 

School Closure 2020 Class information

Good Morning Butterflies Class, I hope you had a good week. I have enjoyed seeing lots of the lovely work that you have been doing. Today is the last day of term, which would usually be ‘Games Day.’ Today I would like you to make your own maths game-this could be a board game or card game and you could use it to practise any maths skill you like, for example times tables, number bonds, addition and subtraction.

I hope that you all have a lovely Easter Holiday, try not to eat too much chocolate. 
Hopefully, we will all be able to see each other soon. 
Miss Webber

 

 

Literacy:

This week would normally be 'Remarkable Writing' week. This week you are going to write a letter to someone you can't see at the moment. This would be a grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin or friend. The whole school will be working on this and if you feel particularly proud of your letter please ask your parents to put on the our social media sites on Friday. This activity ties in well with this week's Picture News assembly which you can find on the website under 'School Closure - assemblies'.

Monday: Decide who you are going to write to and plan your letter. You can use this planning format to help you.

Tuesday: Write your letter in draft.

Remember:

-Capital letters and full stops

-Questions with question marks

-Correct present and past tense

-1st person

-Spelling

Wednesday: Edit your letter using a different coloured pen.

Remember:

-Capital letters and full stops

-Questions with question marks

-Correct present and past tense

-1st person

-Spelling

-Check it makes sense.

Thursday: Write your letter in best, using your very neatest handwriting. Remember the person who receives your letter needs to be able to read it easily.

Friday: Put your letter in an envelope and send it. If you are sending the letter in the post, you will need to write address on the front of the envelope very carefully.

There is also an Easter Revision Booklet to complete and dice to go with the dice game.

For those of you still on coloured books, you can access some books online here:

Maths:

This week I would like you to work through this Easter Revision Booklet. Make a note of which ones you can do by yourself and which ones you needed help with. Then practise more similar questions on those areas.

There are also some games to play on number bonds this week and a booklet to do on addition to 20.

Welcome to the Butterflies class!

Year Two marks the end of Key Stage One for the children and is an especially important year, as we have the Key Stage 1 SATs. Therefore, we will be working extra hard this year to make sure we make lots of progress and prepare ourselves for the harder work to come in Key Stage 2. Developing our reading skills in Year 2 is vital and you can really help at home by ensuring you hear your children read and discuss the books with them every day. Developing our handwriting, including writing in a joined-up cursive style, is something we will practise every week. Year 2 is the year where we also work extra hard on making sure we have a good understanding of those key maths skills, from ordering numbers to understanding multiplication and division.

The adults who work in the Butterflies class are:

Miss Webber, Mr Williams, Mrs L Skilton and Mrs Brett

Homework: Homework will be handed out on Thursday and will be collected in on Wednesdays.

PE:  Tuesday and Friday afternoons
