Year 2 Slovakia
Welcome to Slovakia Class!
Classroom Teacher: Miss E Allen
Please keep updated by reading our Slovakia page on Microsoft Teams.
PE Days: Wednesdays and Fridays
Please ensure that FULL PE kit is worn to school on a Wednesday and Friday. Children need to have their purple Welland shirt, black shorts, trousers or leggings and trainers.
Homework: For homework, we encourage children to read as much as they can at home. They have a reading book which can be changed throughout the week and a reading record to record when they read. Inside the reading record, the children will also have their logins for Doodle Learning and Timetable Rock Stars. We encourage them to practice these regularly and we will be having a 'Doodler of the Week' and 'Rock Star of the Week' for the child who learns the most on these websites. As well as this, spellings will be sent out every Monday in preparation for a spellings test on Friday. Although these practice sheets do not need to be brought back in, we do expect that the children are regularly practising these at home to support their learning.
Reading: We ask all of our children to read every evening with an adult at home. Please ensure that reading records and reading books come into school each day. At the end of the week, the child who has read the most times at home will be awarded the Reader of the Week and will win a prize. Reading books can be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Before the book is changed, we will ask the child some comprehension questions about the book to ensure they have fully understood the story. If we feel that they may need to read it again to fully grasp understanding, we will not change the book.
Autumn Term 1
Our topic this term is Street Detectives! Within this topic we will be learning about the local area of Welland and Peterborough, as well as linking this to geographical features. We will be focusing on navigation and map skills, and will take the children for a trip around the local area to support this.
