Year 2

Croeso, welcome to our Year 2!

In year 2 we aim to develop enquiring minds enabling us to become confident, capable and caring learners.

Our class

We have a busy and lively classroom and we have an outdoor area too. We all take care of it and we are proud of all our work on display.

Autumn 2015 topic

Our topic this term is Street Detective. We will be finding out about streets in Hay and how they have changed. We will also be finding out about some famous streets. In Science we will be finding out about Pushes and Pulls in the first half term.

PE

Our PE session is on a Thursday. PE clothes – shorts, T shirt and trainers or daps – can be left in a bag on the pegs. Please label all items. We will also be swimming on a Wednesday morning.

Homework

Homework will be sent out on Thursday and completed work should be returned to school the following Wednesday. The children will also have word books sent home on a Monday. These books are to practise the spelling of their target words.

Reading at home

During the week we have guided reading sessions but we also have individual reading books. Please read at home as often as possible and talk about the story. At the end of Year 2 the children will sit Welsh National Tests and reading plays a vital part in these tests. In addition, please continue to learn number bonds, practise telling the time and working with money.
