Jolly Jam Jars: Can you Help?

 

The PTA would like donations of decorated and filled jam jars to sell at the PTA Christmas Fayre on Thursday 5th December (3.30-4.30pm).  

Please clean the jar and remove the label, then decorate and fill with lovely things (unisex please).  You could include chocolate (no nuts, thank you), wrapped sweets, jokes, small toys, stationery items, keyrings, badges, cards or stickers.  There is lots of inspiration on the internet, so why not get creative, festive and have some fun helping us to help Milton Hall!  There will be a prize for the class who donate the most!

Year 2 Nativity Trailer!

Earlier in November, we celebrated Poetry Week.  The children in each class learnt a poem to perform to the rest of the school in a special assembly. We have also been busy writing poems about fireworks. To celebrate Poetry Week we thought you might like to enjoy one of our favourite poems by Michael Rosen!

Chocolate Cake | POEM | Kids' Poems and Stories With Michael Rosen https://www.michaelrosen.co.uk Check out Michael's website for news, updates and fun. Why not share this clip. Discuss performance poetry. Look at other Michael Rosen poems. How does Michael's work compare and contrast with another poet?

In Year 2, we have been learning how to add and subtract two numbers using regrouping.  These videos, which you may wish to share with your child, explain how we teach regrouping.  

Here are some useful free websites that your child may like to use at home to help them with their learning:

Guidance for Parents

 

PE Days

Indoor PE Monday 

Outdoor PE Thursday (Cook and Raleigh)

Outdoor PE Friday (Scott)

 

Please ensure that your child has a PE Kit in school every day during school time.  They will need a bag containing PE shorts, PE T-shirt, plimsolls or trainers, tracksuit bottoms/joggers for cold weather.  All items should be clearly marked with your child's name.

 

No jewellery is to be worn.  Children are to remove any stud earrings before coming to school on a PE day or be able to remove the earrings themselves before their PE lesson (staff are not allowed to remove earrings).  If earrings cannot be removed (eg they have only recently been pierced) then tape can be used.

 

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.  Your child will bring home weekly spellings and one piece of Literacy homework, linked to our learning that week.  Your child has been given logins for Times Table Rock Stars and My Maths.  This year, Maths homework will be set and completed online.  The tasks will be set on a Friday and should be completed online by the following Wednesday.

If homework has been completed before Wednesday, you are welcome to send it into school earlier, but it is advisable to make a note of the spellings so your child can continue to practise at home.  Please ensure that all homework books are in school on a Wednesday so they can be marked and the new homework can be stuck in - thank you. Please see your child's class teacher if there is a problem with any of the homework tasks.

 

 

Reading

Reading and enjoying books is hugely important and enjoyable and we encourage you to read/share a book with your child every day for 15 minutes.  Reading records must be handed in daily recording what you have read and ideally be signed by an adult who has heard them read. Children are responsible for changing their reading books when they arrive in class.  Those children who are on Accelerated Reader have a chance to complete a quiz every day in class, when the book has been finished in order to gain points towards prizes which are celebrated in Reading Assemblies.  Although we give regular reminders, we expect the Year 2 children to be responsible for changing their reading books daily (or when they have completed their book).  It would be helpful if you could also remind them in the morning before dropping them at school. 

Our topic this half term is "How can we get our toys to move in a controlled way?"
