Welcome to Year 2 - Beech
Monday mornings are when families are welcomed into the classroom to read with their child, This is a great opportunity for everyone to get together at the start of the week. This session is from 8.40-9.00.
On Mondays and Wednesdays we have an assembly at 10.00 where we all gather to share stories and sing songs. Break is next at 10.15, we all hope for dry weather and a not too muddy field so that we can run free and explore the woods. Letters & Sounds starts at 10.30. This is when we split up into our phonics groups and challenge ourselves with new words and spelling rules. After our phonics lesson we have an English session until lunch. This extended time allows us to read, share ideas on the carpet and really get stuck into our writing. Finally we can all tidy up and get ready for lunch which begins at 12.15.
In the afternoons we go outside for more exploration and fun with our friends. Beech Class starts with either paired reading or handwriting. We listen to classical music & practise stillness to help us feel calm and focussed. Next we work on our topic work or we have a music or PE session in the hall. This is our creative time to build, make and discover.
Please have P.E. kit in school every Thursday and Friday.
After a day full of fun and learning we are ready to change our books collect our letters and pack up our book bags. We eventually reunite with our parents at 3.15, unless you are at one of our wonderful after school clubs. When we arrive home we mustn’t forget to read our books and complete our homework which is set on Thursdays and is due in the following Tuesday.
