Willow Class – Year 2
Hello and welcome to Willow Class!
Miss Beardshaw is our teacher Monday to Friday and our TAs are Mrs Chaplin Mon-Weds and Mrs Perrett on Thursdays.
In Willow Class we love to learn, play, discover and explore together.
Our mornings consist of phonics, maths and English lessons followed by a fun and nurturing wider curriculum focus in the afternoons. We love to read and have lots of opportunities to do so throughout the school day, whether this be in small groups or a 1:1 session with our teachers. We have creative and engaging lessons with lots of opportunities for hands-on activities and we love getting involved with all the school-wide activities as well!
Welcome to Term 1
Welcome back everyone, I hope you had a lovely and relaxing summer. We have lots of exciting things planned this term.
In maths we will be partitioning 2-digit numbers up to 100 and begin to explore strategies to help us add and subtract 2-digit numbers. Our class novel this term is Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown and in English we will be exploring The Train Ride by June Crebbin, after which we will write our own story. In science we will be investigating different materials by identifying their uses and observing their properties. In RE we will discovering what Christians believe God is like by learning about different parables. In history we will be looking at the significance of Brunel by studying his engineering marvels including the S.S. Great Britain, The Clifton Suspension Bridge and the Great Western Railway.
As always, it is imperative that children in Willow Class read at least 4 times a week at home. Children must bring their book bags in on Friday ready for a change of book.
TERM 1 SPELLINGS
Reading at Home
It can be really tricky knowing how to support your child with reading so we have made two videos to give you some ideas on how you can help. It is also good to read the same book with your child at least 3 or 4 times, this enables them to develop fluency when reading a book that has become more familiar.
DUNDRY BOOK WEEK 2021
During the week beginning 1st March 2021 we enjoyed a whole week of book themed fun to celebrate World Book Day. See the video below to hear Dundry teachers reading some their favourite stories and poems.
