Welcome to Cedar,
In Year 2 we try hard to show ourselves as role models for the younger children in Key Stage 1 by demonstrating sensible and kind behaviour.
We work very hard and enjoy improving our maths, reading and writing using our individual passports to support and challenge our thinking. We use a range of provisional areas within the classroom to develop our knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum objectives for Year 2.
Please take some time to explore our work.
This half term we will be learning about World War Two. The children will develop their nonfiction writing skills, writing letters home, recounts of the Blitz and diary extracts from Anne Frank. They will also be developing their understanding through role play, art, design, technology and music. We will also be visiting the East Lancashire Railway and the Fusilier Museum. If any family members would be willing to talk to the children about their experiences of World War Two, or are able to give accounts, please see Mrs Caunce.
This half term the children will complete their SATS in reading, grammar, punctuation, spelling and maths. They have all worked so hard and we are extremely proud of their confidence and attitude towards their learning. The assessment results will be reported in your child’s end of year report along with our own teacher assessment.
The children will continue to take part in two PE lessons each week on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure your child has a full kit (shorts, t shirt and pumps) clearly labelled in a bag. Kits should be kept in school and we will send them home every half term. If children take their kits home following an after school sporting activity please ensure they return their kits the following day.
Please could all parents ensure that children bring their reading books into school everyday. This enables us to keep track of children’s reading development and equally allows us to hear the children read their home/school books. We ask that children read at home to an adult at least 3 times each week and parents sign the reading record adding comments if necessary.
