Year 2 Beech 2018 - 2019
Mrs Johnson, Mrs Wood and Mrs Barley welcome you to Beech Class
We are a team of staff and Year 2 pupils who work hard and enjoy learning.
You should have received an email from Mrs Allmand about our new Reading Scheme. If you have not, you can download the email from this page.
English and maths homework at the moment is being set on Sumdog. The children are really enjoying playing the games and are practising their skills without realising it. I am being hassled every morning to look at how much they have done, which is fabulous!
PE is on Monday and Thursday
Monday is Outdoor PE. A pair of leggings, jogging bottoms or tracksuit bottoms maybe worn along with school sweatshirt if it is chilly.
Thursday is indoor taught by a VARA sport coach. Children will need a team colour or white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps.
Please make sure it is labelled with the child's name. It should be brought to school in a pump bag and left on their peg for the half term.
Year 2 start their SATs at the beginning of May. These are statutory tests which all Year 2 children across the country have to complete. It is therefore really important that your child is in school ALL of May.
Summer 1 Beachcombers
Our topic for this half term is Beachcombers. We will be finding out about different habitats on the beach and how the animals and plants are adapted to life on the sea shore.
I am sure they will particularly enjoy learning about the Hermit Crab and how they upgrade their shells. The children will be designing shells and advertising them to the Hermit Crabs.
This half term is all about measuring: length, mass, capacity and temperature. You can help them at home by involving them in everyday measurements e.g. weighing out ingredients for a cake or regularly checking the temperature.
Please see our termly class newsletter for more information about our learning this term.
As the term goes on take a look on our gallery for photos of our work.
