Welcome Back Year 2!
Welcome back to everyone in Year 2, it has been so lovely to have you back in school. Everyone has settled in so well and we have had a great first week back. PE day will be Wednesday each week and the children will need to come to school in their kit. Remember, as the weather gets more chilly, the children will require warmer clothes as we will aim to go outdoors for as many sessions as we can.
As we are not currently able to send books home from school, we would like you all to access Oxford Owls Reading Online at least four times each week. This will be the reading homework for this half term and we would like you to continue to question your child about the text as they read. You will need to click on the link below and create your own login. Many of you will have used this during Lockdown, as it was the suggested website for Year One reading at this time. Over the coming days, your child will come home with a note informing you of the colour of their reading stage. This may be the same as their previous Year One stage, or may be different. When you login, click on Browse eBooks, Browse the eBook Library, Levels, Book Band and then select the colour stage for your child.
As the children progress with their reading, they may also be given a login to Scholastic Reading which will provide them with online texts and quizzes at a stage appropriate to their development. We will send login details home when this is suitable for your child.
Numbots and Times Table Rockstars
Last year all of our Year One children were given a login to NUMBOTS which they can now use to access both NUMBOTS and Times Table Rockstars. Over the coming days, we will resend these in case they have become misplaced. We aim for all children to know their 2,5,and 10 times tables with confidence by the end of Year 2 and the TT Rockstars website provides fun games to support this learning. For their maths homework this term, we would like the children access each of these at least twice a week and we will monitor their progress weekly.
