The Year 2 staff would like to welcome all parents,guardians, family and friends to our school website and look forward to sharing your children's successes with you. We aim to regularly update our webpage with important events and dates so you are able to check what what is happening on a daily/weekly basis.
PE takes place every Monday afternoon. Please ensure children are suitably dressed for both indoor and outdoor PE sessions during the Autumn Term as children will alternate being inside and outside weather permitting.
Reading books are sent home daily and we would like to see them daily to support pupils in a mission to get everyone reading independently by the time they leave Year 2. We have a Lego initiative in class so that we can see and the pupils themselves can see their reading accelerating through the reading levels. Pupils collect lego pieces every time them complete a book and can then begin to to create their own model.
Research books go home each week and is linked to our learning. This can be a piece of 'Flipped Learning' whereby pupils watch a video clip and try out an activity. These short videos are uploaded and placed within the flipped learning folder. It can also be a Nearpod activity or a piece of research whereby pupils can present their work in any way they wish, not forgetting to use Hwb to save any digital work.
Good behaviour is rewarded with pom poms/stickers, giving the children the opportunity to receive a prize once their bucket/sticker chart is full. Children also receive 'Seren Cymraeg' ticks when making an effort to speak incidental welsh through out the day and one child each week will take home the welsh diary to fill and share their weekends with the class. The children follow a Behavior Charter.
Diolch yn fawr, thank you!
