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, plus links to homework and useful resources.
We aim to have physical activities on a daily basis so please ensure children are suitably dressed for the outdoors. This term we are having cricket sessions with an All Wales Cricket Coach every Tuesday afternoon.
Reading books are sent home on a Monday and we ask them to be returned on a Friday, ready for a new set of books at the start of the following week. Your child also has access to the online library, 'Oxford Owls' and free app 'Teach your Monster How to Read'- a fun and engaging alternative to daily reading. 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. Please listen to your child regularly, asking them questions about the text. Listening little and often is vital for their development.
Research books go home each week on a Thursday and are linked to the following week's skills. 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 on this website, or please scan the QR code in your child's research book. Your child can record their homework in their research book, or on Hwb using J2E to save any digital work- if you need a new copy of your child's HWB password, please ask.
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. The children follow a Behavior Charter, which follows the 'UNCRC Rights of the Child', each class has a copy of the charter on display.
Diolch yn fawr, thank you!
