As we are approaching the end of term we wanted to focus our home learning activities on the transition to year 3.
We know that the transition period can be a difficult time for many of our pupils and we are aware that the length of time since most of our year 2 pupils have been in school may exaggerate anxieties.
Please take this time to explore the different transition activities with your child. You should by now know who your child's new teacher and are encouraged to contact their existing or new teacher with any concerns/queries.
Don't forget if there is ever anything we can do to support you please do get in contact with us. We ask that over the course of each week you get in touch just to keep us updated on your child's wellbeing. We will be making weekly check in phone calls every Wednesday to anyone we have not heard from. Please remember this is not checking up on you or what work you have completed but a way of knowing that your child is happy and healthy.

We know not all parents are able to access Class Dojo and we want to make sure that we can keep in touch with all of you during this period. Therefore we have included our school email addresses, to make it easier for you to keep in contact via email.

2C – Miss. Carter

Your literacy task this week is to create a booklet all about you! You can download and use the booklet below or design your own. This is a literacy task so you need to include a good amount of writing on each section. If creating your own booklet design please make sure you include: All about you, your favourite part of year 2, what you are looking forward to in year 3 and a note for your new teacher.
We would also like you to spend some time practicing your spelling and your handwriting. You can download this handwriting booklet to practice or practice on lined paper. Take your time and circle your best attempt. For an extra challenge practice your handwriting by putting your spelling words into silly sentences.
Last week you all created some fantastic maths board games! Don't forget to get them out and play them with your family. This week we would like you to make clocks showing the times of your school day in September. There are also challenge cards etc in the resources list should you need them. Don't forget you should also be practicing your times tables every day for at least 10 mins using Times Table Rockstars!
Celebrate the end of term with these fun fairy cakes!
