Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 2 – Sycamore & Willow

Welcome to Sycamore and Willow!

Year 2

 

Mrs Burge, Mrs Cooper, Mrs Carlisle, Mrs Niaz and Mrs Ellis and  warmly welcome to you Year Two. In Year 2 our Curriculum Values, as well as the British Values, are evident in everything we do. Wherever possible we integrate resilience, pride, collaboration, exploration, creativity and innovation into our learning.

 

Our Summer Term topic is 'The Seaside'. We will be making puppets, paper landscape collages and doing still life drawing. In our science lessons we will be learning about living things in their habitats and creating a lighthouse with a simple electrical circuit. We will be comparing our City of Nottingham to Jamaica and Skegness as well as learning about the history of seaside holidays from the Victorian era to the present day.

 

We hope that you find some motivating homework on our Homework Menu and we look forward to sharing it with the class at the end of each half-term.  It can be found in the Homework books or on here.  Children will read in school every week so please ensure they have their reading book and diary with them everyday. We please ask that you continue your good work in supporting us, by reading together at home regularly.  The children love to receive house points/astronauts for this and we give them out on a daily/weekly basis - they can soon mount up!

 

Well done to Two Willow class for once again winning the Read at Home Competition for the first half of the Spring Term. 15 minutes extra play has been enjoyed in the sunshine!

2 Willow Reading Challenge

2 Willow Reading Challenge 3

The aim of our lovely, motivating display is to encourage all the children to read every day at home to a grown up!

There is a sliding scale of rewards. 15 readers = 1 astronaut

                                                         20 readers = 2 astronauts

                                                         25 readers = 3 astronauts

                                                         30 readers = 4 astronauts

Once the rocket is filled then the children can have 5 minutes extra playtime...

 

Come on 2 Willow you can do this again!

 

Mrs Carlisle is very proud of the improvement so far...keep going!

2 Willow have filled several spaceships and won the School's Reading Challenge twice! I am so proud of my class for the amount of reading they are doing at home, this is really showing in our group reading lessons and how they answer questions. Most children are reading 4 times a week - lots are reading every day, (sometimes 2 or 3 times a day!!) Keep it up 2 Willow we will give Year 6 a run for their money on the amount of reads in a half-term!! Thank you to the parents for their continued support...COME ON KIDS WE CAN WIN THIS BEAN BAG! surprise
