Why not try using this bookmark print out when reading with your child at home, it will help them to understand what they are reading and ensure they are able to answer questions about the text.
24.01.20 We won the Womble for the tidiest KS1 classroom, well done everybody!
We now have an in-class reading rewards system. Each time a child reads they get a sticker for their reading rainbow, the more times they read the more stickers they receive. A full rainbow is 25 reads and that is when the prizes begin! I will be checking reading diaries every Friday, remember to try and read with your child as often as possible. Don't forget it's not just books; magazines, menus, cereal boxes, game instructions etc. all count as reading.
Here are some of the children presenting their opinions to the rest of the class on whether or not to keep the bog baby and reasons for and against going to Annie's house.
22.01.20 We did some talk for writing work in English today, the children were working in different groups. Some were being interviewed by a police officer, another group were discussing whether or not to keep the bog baby and the final group were giving reasons for and against going to Annie's house.
In PSHE our topic is 'Growing up' we spoke about respecting other people's feelings and what 'consent' means and why it is respectful to ask if you can do something to somebody e.g. give them a hug or pick them up etc. The children did some role play activities based on scenarios that they may experience as a child in year 2.
Happy New Year!
Welcome back to school, I am so excited to see you all again and to continue all of the fabulous learning that we were doing before Christmas. I hope you are all feeling well rested and ready to come back
A few reminders for the new year:
- PE is on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, please ensure children have their PE in school each week.
- Please provide your child with a drink every day as we need to keep hydrated! We understand that some children do not like water therefore healthy squash is allowed.
- Please ensure homework books are brought back by Friday so I can stick the new spellings in ready for your child to practise.
Please label your child's uniform as we are getting a lot of uniform left behind in class with no name on.
Welcome to Miss Mulgrew's year 2 class page. Our class is called Elm and is inspired by the trees on our school grounds. Hopefully you might be able to find the Elm tree at some point during the year.
I hope you are able to regularly check this page as it will contain useful links and information, latest school news and most importantly a display of fantastic pictures from your child's journey throughout the year . I will also update the windows in our classroom with any messages or reminders.
I am so excited for this year and hope you are too!
