Welcome to Year 2. Croeso!
Staff in Year 2: Mrs S. Ashman,
Mrs K. Taylor, Mrs D. Hall & Mrs L. Kidwell
We are so excited to be welcoming you back to school after our Summer holidays. Mrs Taylor will be teaching on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Ashman the rest of the week. We have got an exciting and fun-filled year ahead, with lots of lovely whole school and phase topics.
Our Autumn Topic
Our whole school topic for this tterm will be 'Long, Long Ago' and our focus will be on the age of the dinosaurs. Pupil voice is very important to us so you will be helping us to plan through our EPIC planning and we are looking forward to hearing all of your wonderful ideas.
Monday (PM)- Children to wear school jumpers or red cardigans with t-shirt and suitable bottoms such as leggings, tracksuit bottoms or shorts (summer) and trainers into school on this day. Children will need to be able to fasten their shoes themselves. This is essential for the children's safety while taking part in physical activity. The children will also be doing the daily mile every day weather permitting.
We are very fortunate to have such a rich learning environment literally on our doorstep. Every fortnight on a Monday, we will be completing activities using our local area. Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather which includes, waterproof coats and wellies in the Winter.
Here are the dates for the first half term:
Monday 19th September
Monday 3rd October
Monday 17th October
Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday. Please find the weekly homework on the class blog.
At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Our new reading system will be up and running after the first 2 weeks of settling into the new classes. We will send details home with further information. We are continuing with our online reading scheme called 'Reading Eggs'. This is an exciting and valuable tool to help raise children's confidence in reading. Children will have an individual log in and they can use it at home. this will become part of year 2 homework.
Fruit and Drinks
Healthy eating is a priority in our school and we are encouraging everyone to bring in a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for eating during morning breaktime. Please bring in a water bottle (with your name on it) every day for use in the classroom and will need to be taken home and brought back each day. Please can you ensure that water bottles for classroom use are filled only with water. Other drinks are allowed for packed lunches i.e. squash or fruit juice.
Website, twitter & Dojo:
Remember to check our class blog to see what we have been learning and our twitter feed to see pictures of the lovely things we do. Our twitter account is @casllwchwr1 and we use the hash tag #cllpyear2. If anyone needs a bit of help to set up a twitter account, pop in and we can help you out. It’s very simple to use and so good for seeing what goes on in the classroom. We try to tweet a few times a week. We will also continue to use Class Dojo.
Year 2 - Planning the Curriculum
We are working together to plan and prepare exciting learning opportunities with everyone involved. EPIC Planning (Everyone planning in class) - Pupil voice will help us to steer our learning journey together.
Autumn Term Topic - Long Long Ago
Children are excited about the topic and together have come up with some great ideas during EPIC planning time.
Spring Term Topic - Is Wales Epic?
We have initiated our topic with a class vote. We will now learn together using EPIC planning to engage and involve children in their own learning. We will decide at the end If Wales is Epic?
Summer Term Topic - Shiver Me Timbers
We will endeavour to reply as soon as possible
Mrs Taylor will endeavor to get back to you as soon as possible.
