In Phonics this term we have been revising all the sounds we should have learnt in Year 1.
We are so proud of the way the children have been trying their best in Phonics. After half term the government has asked all schools to check that the children in Year 2 know all of these sounds by using the Year 1 Phonics screening.
You can help by supervising your child to play any of these Phase 5 games on the Phonics Play website. You can use a phone, tablet or PC to access these games.

Until October 21st children are allowed to use the free login:

The log in will enable your child to use Reading Robot but you will need to listen to what your child says and judge whether it is phonetically accurate. Have fun and thank you for working with us to help your child.

This week we have been practising our number bonds to 10 and 20. We will be practising this further next week so would love it if you could have a go at home.
Number bonds are parts of numbers that can be combined to make a certain number. E.g. 1+ 9 = 10, 2+ 8 = 10, etc. If we know our bonds to 10 really well this can help us when solving other maths facts.
10’s Concentration game— Have the digits 0 – 10 face down on the table. On their turn, each player turns up two cards. If they add up to 10, they get to keep them and try again. If one of the cards is a 10, they'set to keep it and turn up another card. Whoever takes the most cards, wins.
Move on and play the above game with pairs to 20.
Hi Class 2! Welcome back :-) It has been so lovely to see you all again after such a long time and to see all your huge smiling faces. I know everyone was really happy to be reunited with their friends and be back safely at school.
We have had a wonderful first week back and have spent lots of time getting to know one another. Everyone has settled in nicely and have soon remembered our school rules and learnt new routines. We are extra excited this term as we are beginning a BRAND NEW topic called Turrets and Tiarras.
We have already started our learning in English and History about a well known legend called Robin Hood. We will be writing character descriptions, some drama and writing an adventure story - pretending to be Robin Hood. We will be finding out about famous castles and what life was like in medieval times. We will also be reading a superb book by Giles Andre called Sir Scallywag - a brave young knight that goes on lots of 'very interesting' quests. I can't wait to share this with you soon! In maths we will be doing lots of counting - forwards and back, making sure our place value is secure and move onto some more challenging addition and subtraction work. As part of our topic work we will be exploring castles, looking at maps and learning some new drawing and sketching skills.
I am very excited to get cracking with our new topic and to fill our walls with all your new learning! It's going to be a great first half term in class 2!
