Year Two Notice Board
Books we have been reading in class this term include:
As part of our focus on reading in school, we would like to develop the lending library of books within each class. This will enable the children to foster a passion and love of reading at Belmont and ensure that they have access to high quality texts.
Please find links to two book lists that have a variety of we would love to have in class. Once a book has been donated to the class we will add it to the list of books purchased. Please check this list to ensure that the book that you would like to donate is one that we don't already have.
Home School Partnership
On the Google Classroom for Damsons/Apricots you will find a Home School Partnership welcome presentation video with information about Year 2. Parents will be able to access this using their child's Google Classroom log-in. Here are the slides: Home School Partnership
Our topic the Spring term is Fighting for Survival.
The below list is part of an initiative called Word Aware that we are using in school. We thought it would be helpful to share this list with you so that you can use some of these words at home when discussing the topic. If your child speaks a different language at home, it would be helpful to discuss and translate these words using your home language.
Each Year 2 child will bring home a CGP KS1 English - Grammar, Punctuation & Spelling Homework Book. Below are details on which task to complete and these books need to be returned each Monday to be marked in class. Do not let your child complete all of the tasks in these books, we will set work linked to what we teach in class where possible and we will be assigning tasks each week therefore the book will not be completed in page order.
Each week we will be setting homework on a Monday. This is to be completed within 1 week by the following Monday. Home Learning is assigned through the Apricots and Damsons Google Classrooms. Further information about the learning in history and geography is available on our new Knowledge Organisers. These are available on Google Classroom in the Classwork tab.
