Welcome back Year 2!
We are delighted to have you back and we can't wait for you all to take part in the exciting learning we have planned for this term.
Our topic this term is:
Road to Sparkhill
In Summer 1 we will be focusing on geography and learning about the area of Sparkhill.
In summer 2 we will be focusing on history and learning about the history of our local area.
Please find a link below to our class text this half term. We are looking at the book "A journey home" to write our own version of the story.
Trip to Sandwell Valley
As part of our science topic, 'Living things and their habitats', we went to Sandwell Valley to learn more about minibeasts and the habitats they live in.
We looked for land minibeasts in a meadow and pond minibeasts in a pond. We were then able to identify what minibeasts we had caught and find out information about our minibeasts.
Please use the handout provided in your child's homework pack and discuss the story at home.
There will be no Book Talk this week due to SATS tests taking place. Please ensure you still read and discuss stories at home.
Home reading books.
All reading books will now be assigned online. You will all receive your own login to the Big Cat e-library. Once logged in, you will see the book your teacher has assigned to you. If you need help please contact us or follow the user guide.
Children are expected to log on and read every night.
Reading books will be changed every Friday.
If your child has finished the book, encourage them to read it again and ask them questions to check their understanding of the book.
If you are experiencing long loading times for Big Cat, you may need to clear your browsing data to speed up the logging in process. Please see the PDF below explaining how to do this.
Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
Children should also be logging on to Big Cat every day and reading their books.
It is important your child reads and gets their Reading Journals signed every night. This will be checked once a week by your child's teacher.
PE is on a Tuesday. Please bring your child to school in their PE kit every Tuesday.
PE kits need to be plain. Please do not bring your child to school in expensive, branded clothes.
