Don't forget to keep reading every day and practising your spellings. Let us know how you are getting on through Seesaw.
Please still use the website for existing useful websites and general information.
Keeping in Touch
Please be aware, if we have not heard from you by the end of Tuesday each week, we will be contacting you - just to make sure everyone is doing OK, so it would be great to see lots of learning. Thank you!
Weekly Video Calls
Just to let you know that every week we will be arranging a video call with each of you. You will receive a link, via email, for your time, please keep an eye out for it. If the appointment booked is inconvenient please email and we can try and change it to a more suitable time.
(Suggested 15 minutes a day)
and it's great to share reading with other family members. Also, don't forget the Reading Challenges.
Think about different types of reading material, for example; books, magazines, food packets, instructions for games, websites, to name a few.
Below are some links to online books to read and listen to.
If you are a member of the Cambridgeshire library service you can borrow ebooks, magazines and audiobooks online. Go to the website link below to log in and get more information. Don't worry if you are not a member you can also join by following the link.
'First News' Children's Newspaper
As a school we subscribe to the 'First News' children's newspaper. This week they have given us a link to the digital copy. The link is below if you would like to read this with your child. The Web ID is FNELOCK3
Don't forget to learn your Galaxy of Spelling Common Exception Words and ask someone to test you each week. When you get them all right you can move on to the next level. The list of spellings is below.
Spelling Out Words
When spelling out words, in Year 2 we are moving from using letter sounds to letter names, so we tend to do both. What we would do is first ask your child to sound out the word and then together say/write the letter name/s that go with each sound.
When correcting spellings, the most important words to correct are the common exception spelling words, which should also help with learning those spellings. Next are the topic words, so for example in Maths we would expect words like pictogram and tally to be spelt correctly or in Geography words like continent. If you can understand other misspelt words, you need only occasionally correct them.
Maths and English CGP Books
These books, that came home with your Remote Learning Book, have activities to be completed once a week. So the first week of this term is Spring Term Workout 1. This can be done as an extra any time during the week.
If you go to the Aspiration Enrichment webpage (under the Learning tab) there are extra topics to have a look at and activities to have a go at. Let us know what you discover.

Christmas Production 2020
We have made the decision to go ahead with a Christmas production this year and have chosen ‘The Angel Who Nearly Missed It All’. Unfortunately, due to the current situation the children will be unable to perform live on stage. However, we plan and hope to be able to record the performance and publish it on the Year 2 website page.
Please look out for a letter next week explaining costumes.
Autumn 2 2020 Timetable and Overview
