Helpful math topic ideas
What can you do to help?
Here are a few ideas for activities that you and your child can do at home together. We'll keep adding
ideas as we come across them to. If you find something great which you and your child really enjoy, let us know!
English in Year 2
What are we learning in English this week?
Monday 20th March 2017
This week we will be researching one of our favourite mini beasts and collating this information on a mind map. We will use what we have learnt about non-chronological report writing to write our own report which will contribute towards a class book.
Reading in Year 2
At John Clifford, we believe that reading is very important. We allow the children to engage in reading in a number of ways, including:
- daily whole class story time
- children being able to choose their own reading book
- open reading mornings and afternoons
- reading buddy classes
- guided reading sessions
- access to a range of text types in the classrooms for children to choose to read.
We ask that to support your child with their reading that you read with them at least three times a week at home. For each time your child reads at home, they are rewarded with a class bee token to put towards their hive total.
We are always looking out for reading volunteers too to help read with children at school. If you have the time to spare, please see Mrs Laud who will be able to give you some more information.
Watch out for brand new reading targets in your reading diaries - coming soon!
