WELCOME TO YEAR 2
(Scroll down to find out about our NEW theme this term)
Over the next year we will be having had lots of fun at school, and you can see some of our learning highlights on our blog. We also put a lot of our learning onto Seesaw, which means our families at home can see what we have been getting up to in school.
There are two Year 2 classes at Tudor:
2Q- is taught by Miss Cosby and Mrs Southcott
2R- is taught by Miss Scott and Mrs Frampton-Salter
Every week, both class are taught by Mrs Rafiq-Craske for a day and will have a PE session taught by Mr Higgins .
PE DAYS FOR BOTH CLASSES: Thursday and Friday
Year 2 get two pieces of homework to complete every week as well as reading at home AND at school in our READING DRIVE.
Homework is given out on Friday and due back in school on Wednesdays.
The Reading Drive takes place in class every morning. It is a place where you can come and read with your child for 10 minutes. Come along and read and be entered into a prize draw for some fantastic book prizes. If you can't make it to the morning reading drive, you can also take part Virtually on Seesaw. Record a page of reading and upload it to your child's journal for another entry into the prize draw.
If you have any questions, please ask your class teacher.
To help children learn the weekly spelling rules, we have log ins to Spelling Shed. All the children will have a log in (either in their red book OR spelling book) to access the weekly list.
To log on go to: https://www.edshed.com/en-gb/login
1) Type in the child's username and password
2) If and assignment has been set you can click on that OR pupils can choose spelling shed to work on other rules and sounds of their choice. The stages work 'roughly' with year groups. In Year 2 we use Stage 1 and Stage 2 lists.

Get the flags and bunting ready, we are having a right royal celebration this term!
Our theme for the summer term is TURRETS AND TIARAS. (Cue the fanfare!)
What changed during the reign of Queen Elizabeth II?
What would it be like to be crowned King or Queen?
How would a fairytale be different if there was a new hero?
What makes a castle- a castle?
What did you have to do to become a knight?
How do you make a feast fit for a king?
Where are all the Royal houses?
How many toilets are there in Windsor Castle?
All of these and much more will be looked at this term. We will spend time finding out more about the British royal family, the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and the Castles.
If you would like to know more, please make sure you look at the overview attached to this page...
So strap on the armour, prepare the shield and shine up your sword....we are off on a royal adventure!
