Welcome to Year 2 – Star Class

"Laugh often, dream big, reach for the stars!" Don Williams, Jr.

 

Welcome to Star Class, a group of 30 pupils who are all eager and enthusiastic to grow, learn and have fun together. My name is Miss LeVardi and I will be teaching Year 2 alongside Mrs Gartside. We look forward to watching and supporting each of the children to achieve their greatest potential.

 

Star class have an exciting year ahead! We will start by exploring the Artic, under the gaze of the Northern lights, to help wolf find his way home. We will then become historians digging into Whitworth's past and looking at the Taylor family, a family of extremely successful and famous surgeons and medics. Our ‘World Kitchen’ topic will allow us to journey around the 7 continents, tasting a variety of traditional dishes through our cookery demonstrations which will be showcased in a class cookery book. Finally we will conduct our own fieldwork as we explore living things and their habitats which will hopefully lead to a class trip to a nearby farm or zoo.

 

We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.

 

HOMEWORK

 

Each week, the children will receive spellings which are on the website, phonics homework and a phonics read which is linked to the phonics sounds they have done at school the previous week.

Summer 2

This term, our History theme is the Whitworth Doctors. Throughout this, we will look at the doctors in Whitworth, how it started and its impact on our local area, the significant people involved and where they are. We will focus mainly on the Taylors throughout this topic. 

 

Within Literacy, we will be developing our abilities on writing stories similar to that of Roald Dahl and writing riddles. Children will be consolidating skills including punctuation, sentence formation and grammar skills to develop their writing even further. The children are really developing their story writing and we have seen a fantastic improvement within this throughout the year

 

In Maths, we will continue to recap all previous areas of learning consolidating different areas across the curriculum. This will ensure the children are confident learners ready for moving to Year 3 in September.

 

Other than History, in our curriculum time we will be learning about How we grow and stay healthy in Science,  Exploring Improvisation in Music and Reconciliation and Treasures in RE. Throughout PE lessons, we will be completing Dance with Sally on a Thursday and fundamental skills lessons with Miss LeVardi on a Wednesday. 

ROUTINES IN CLASS

Snack Time 

Morning break begins at 10:30am. If you wish to you can send your child in with a healthy snack please feel free otherwise the children will be able to choose from our class selection each day.  

 

 

Reading

We ask you to read with your child as much as possible to help with their learning. Once you have read with your child, please fill in their reading record to let us know. Every child will always have two school reading books. We will change books if you have noted they have been completed so please ensure your child’s reading record and books are in their school bag. Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday.

 

Some children are now on Accelerated Reader books. Please continue to write in their books when they have completed their book and they will be given time each day to quiz if needed. We will then record what they have got in the quiz.

If they do not pass the quiz they will be asked to read it again. Accelerated reader really focuses on comprehension skills which are extremely important. 

 

PE

PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday. Children should come to school in their PE kit (Black leggings or black jogging bottoms, PE top and hoody, jumper or cardigan).

 

Spellings

Children will have new spellings each week which are displayed below in Homework Reminders. They will be tested on these every Friday morning at the end of phonics so it would be great if they could practice them in the week at home.

 

Phonics

Every weekend children will be sent home with their phonics focus pack which contains an activity sheet based on the week's sounds, their week's spellings and a reading book containing these sounds. These packs need to be returned by the following Thursday in order for them to be changed to the current week's learning. Children have been working hard in class on their phonic knowledge and in bringing their pack home they can consolidate this by talking to you about all they have learned.
