What are we learning about this half term?
Week commencing 15.9.19
What are we learning this week?
This week, we are going to read and re-tell the story of Princess and the Pea. We will then ask the children to write their own understanding of the story in their own words.
This week we are continuing to learn about Place Value. We will be assessing the children's understanding of the unit throughout the week in order to identify gaps and support accordingly. Use the video below to remind you how to find hundreds, tens and units (ones).
Meet the Teacher
If you did not manage to make your child's Meet the Teacher meeting, look through the presentations below which includes all relevant information.

PE will be every Monday and Thursday. The children will also be taking part in daily exercise both inside and outside. Please can you ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school all week. PE kit includes a plain white or white JC t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and trainers. Please send socks if your child is wearing tights. Children will need to have earrings removed for PE lessons.
Water is available to the children throughout the day in the classroom. Please provide them with a named water bottle. These will be sent home daily.
Pine and Willow will be going outside to work in the Outdoor Classroom throughout the Autumn term. Each class will alternate weeks with Willow starting on Friday 13th September. Children will need to bring a set of warm appropriate clothes for the sessions as well as their school uniform for them to get changed back into.
Your child has been issued with a Communication Dairy. We ask that all children read at least three times a week at home and have their diary signed by an adult at home. If you have any questions or queries, please use the diary and ask your child to let us know that there is a message for us.
Each half term, your child will be sent home with a 'Homework Grid' sheet. Our expectation is that the children complete the grey boxes weekly, and choose one other piece of homework each week as an optional piece of work. Children may bring in any completed homework at any point throughout the term.
This half terms Homework Grid is below:
Just a reminder that toys should not be brought into school.
The Year 2 classrooms are fully equipped with the stationery that the children will need. We encourage children not to bring anything to school that is valuable to them, as we cannot account for things going missing.
