Welcome to Robins Class!
What a lovely start to year 2 we have had so far! We are all settling in brilliantly and are working hard on getting used to the new routines around school.
We have started our new topic 'What can we do with all our rubbish?' and are beginning to think about where all our 'junk' goes after we throw it in the bin. To launch our new topic, we had great fun working in teams to create buildings, bridges, cars and other imaginative creations out of old cardboard boxes.
In year 2 we have a big focus on improving reading comprehension to deepen our understanding of what we are reading and we will be practicing this a lot in class together. You can also help your child at home to work on these skills by asking them questions about the books they're reading.
We are also starting to practice our 2s, 3s and 5 times tables, counting them both up and down so it would be great help if you practiced these at home too.
I look forward to the rest of this exciting first term with the lovely Robins class!
