Mathematics and Numeracy:
In this area of learning we will be continuing to develop our number skills in discrete maths sessions and wider numeracy skills such as money, measurement and geometry through our inquiry based learning. Some areas we will be focusing on are: counting up to 100, applying our understanding of number bonds and multiplications of 2, 5 and 10.
Languages, Literacy and Communication:
We will be exploring literacy through storytelling, where we will be developing our writing skills through lost and found stories. We also will have weekly spelling and reading challenges! And, we are committed to developing our oracy skills to make us skilled speakers!
We will be learning lots of new Welsh and Spanish vocabulary to make us brilliant bilingual speakers! Rydyn ni'n cyffrous i dysgu!
Inquiry Based Learning:
Our first inquiry of Year 2 is all about how people have shaped the Welsh coast through past and present. We will explore the geographical features of some Welsh coasts, what the coasts are used for and how they have changed over time. One of the key texts we will be reading is Sea Saw by Tom Percival which explores as lost teddy’s extraordinary journey from the beach.
Homework & Online Learning
Homework will be set weekly on Google Classroom on Thursdays to be returned the following Tuesday for marking. Please let us know if you need support logging in!
Other online tools you may want to use at home are:
Please send children to school with a piece of fruit or veg and a reusable bottle of water each day.
Please ensure packed lunches are healthy. We are a nut free school so please do not pack any form of nuts (including nut spreads like Nutella).
PE is still taking place each week for your child but these sessions have been adapted in light of Covid-19. To make things easier and to reduce any risks please ask your child’s class teacher on what day they have PE and on that day you may send your child to school in their PE kit. As the months are getting cooler please think about sending them in a tracksuit with a t-shirt and sweatshirt that they can remove.
