Welcome to Year 2!

I’m excited to be welcoming you all back to Hollinhey, together again as a whole class!

During our first half term, we began by reconnecting with school and each other through a learning project based on the wonderful book, Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. I’m excited about developing our skills as artists through our whole school art project based on the works of Wassily Kandinsky. I love numbers and teaching maths, so I’m enjoying seeing what we can all remember and working hard to make sure we have all mastered key number skills to prepare us for the rest of Year 2. We’ve also taken time to share and celebrate any new skills or knowledge we have learnt individually during this year.

We’ve moved on to our first half term topic of ‘You wouldn't want to explore the world with Captain Cook, would you?’, in which we’re learning about the world’s continents and oceans. We’ll learn about the expeditions of Captain Cook, and find out about why ocean exploration was so dangerous and how his crew overcame many challenges.

On Thursday afternoons, Mrs. Storer teaches Year 2.

Important information

•            Our main P.E. day will be each Monday – children should come to school in their P.E. kit on this day. The P.E. lesson will take place outside in the afternoon and windows will be open in the classroom for ventilation, so children can wear leggings/joggers and their school jumper over the top.

•            Pupils will have two reading books, one for at school and one for at home. Pupils can change their home reading books on Tuesdays and Fridays, so please send in any books to swap on those days. 

•            Pupils will also have two reading records, again one for at school and one of each for at home. Pupils should bring their reading record to school each Friday. It will then be swapped with the reading record from school so we can share the reading that’s been going on in school and at home. 

•            Taking the time every day to read with and listen to your child, and discussing the content of the text, will have a hugely beneficial impact on your child's learning and progress. To help to motivate young learners, I love to celebrate reading at home on our class ‘Readerboard’, which will feature the names of those pupils who have read at home three or more times in a week and have brought their reading record to show this. Of course, the real benefit of practising reading for each child will be the development of their skills and progress in learning, which will impact their lives for many years to come.

•            Reading will take place daily in school. We will do whole class guided reading, small group guided reading, individual reading and reading in our phonics, English and other lessons. I will record the small group guided reading sessions in the reading records. Unfortunately, due to the current situation, reading volunteers will not yet be coming to school to read with the pupils.

•             Homework will be fully online, and will be set every Wednesday and should be completed for the following Monday. Homework includes daily reading at home, as well as online activities on Spelling Shed and Maths Shed (and TT Rockstars in the future). Pupils may need support to complete it.

•             Please send water in the childrens' bottles and a healthy snack for breaktime.
