Holmgate Primary School And Nursery

Welcome to Year 2 

Teachers

The adults working Year 2 are Mrs McLellan and Mrs Atkinson

Miss Peverell will teach Year 2 every Thursday

Ash will teacher PE every Tuesday

 

Our Learning

Our project this term is 'How do we look after what is important?'  As part of this project, we will be 

looking at habitats, different environments (macro and micro), oceans and continents, and India.

Our project will centre around four concept words: responsibility, beauty, care and tradition.  The 

children will be exploring what these words mean and making links between these words and their

learning.

  Uniform

Could you please make sure all uniform and coats are clearly named to help the children look after

their own things?  If it has a name in and is misplaced it will eventually make its way back to your child, if not

it may not.

Snack

Fresh fruit is available for the children each day, however, children can bring their own healthy snack

to school for break time.  They are allowed to bring a 'treat' on Fridays.

Reading

The children in Key Stage 1 will be following the whole Read Write Inc. programme.  This will cover

phonics, reading comprehension, punctuation, grammar and writing.  Each child will be assessed every

half term and placed in the appropriate group that will build their confidence, whilst moving them on in

their learning.  The targeted learning will mean they will work in smaller, more focused groups.

 

Please listen to your child read at least three times a week and fill in an entry in their

Reading Record Book.

PE

Children should come into school wearing their PE kits on PE days

Y2 have PE every Tuesday, and every other Thursday 

Seesaw

We will be using Seesaw again this year in order for parents to be able to see some of the work that children have been completing during lesson time.  Seesaw will also be used to allow teachers to communicate with parents more easily and may be used to occasionally set work for the children.  Spellings will be posted on Seesaw every Friday ready to be tested the following week.

Please let school know if you are struggling to connect to Seesaw so we can help you with this.
