St Anne's CE VC Primary School Respect Responsibility Friendship Excellence

Year 2 2020/21

Welcome to Year Two Information

Friday 11th September 2020

 

Wow, we are already 2 weeks into Year Two! Well done to all of the children for settling in and learning our new routines so quickly.

 

We enjoyed our Big Bang day this week which launched our whole school topic 'Come on and Celebrate'. We found out about the local festivals and fiestas in our part of the country - we learnt about Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Glastonbury Festival, Bristol Harbour Festival and Longleat Festival of Light. It was a great chance for children to share their experiences of celebrations and get excited about our new topic.

 

Please can we remind parents and carers that reading books need to be returned in named plastic wallets every THURSDAY in order for us to quarantine and exchange them. New books will be sent home each MONDAY.

 

PE will continue every WEDNESDAY this term - please send children to school in warm kits. 

 

Please see this week's homework challenge below, do continue to forward any photos of children's home learning to office@stannesprimaryschool.org.uk for our attention.

 

Many thanks,

 

Mrs Pearce, Mrs Quinn and Miss Franklin

Welcome back! The children have had a fantastic few days starting Year Two and we are incredibly proud of how sensible and mature they have been. It's been wonderful to begin to get to know them and we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead.

 

Routines

PE

Children need to wear their PE kits to school on their PE day. They should wear a plain red or white t-shirt, plain jogging bottoms or shorts and a plain jumper as well as trainers. PE is outdoors this term. 

Class 5 & Class 6 both have PE on a WEDNESDAY.

 

Forest Schools

Year Two have a block of Forest Schools sessions on the dates below. Children will need to wear their school uniform but need to bring waterproof trousers, waterproof coat and wellies so that these can be worn over their uniforms. 

Class 5 - Tuesdays 6th, 13th and 20th October and 3rd November.

Class 6 - Thursdays - 8th, 15th, 22nd October and 5th November.

 

Reading

A reading book will be sent home every Monday. This book should be read 3 times during the week.

1st time - to decode / sound out each word.

2nd time - read the story and discuss / answer questions.

3rd time - read the story more fluently.

Books should then be sent back into school on a Thursday so that they can be quarantined for 72 hours.  Please return the book in the named plastic wallet provided so that we can prepare the next text. If you feel that your child is not on the correct book band after the extended school closure, please email us to let us know. We are hoping to read with all children in the coming days. 

 

Homework

Each Friday we will upload homework to the school website. Due to current restrictions we will not be sending homework books or sheets between home and school, we will set an activity that can be completed at home and ask that a photo be sent through to the school website for our attention should you wish to do so.

Please see below, the homework for Friday 4th September. 

 

Have a great weekend, we look forward to seeing you on Monday.
