Welcome to Year 2!
Class Teachers: Mrs Bambridge (Monday-Wednesday) and Miss Miah (Thursday-Friday)
Support Staff: Mr Jessep and Mrs Crisp (AM)
We are very excited to welcome you all to the Year 2 Class Page. On this page there is lots of information about our learning this term and how you can support your child. We will upload videos and photos regularly to support your child's learning, so please revisit the page as often as possible, to keep up to date!
We pride ourselves on having an 'open door' policy in Year 2 and hope that all our parents/ carers feel that they have regular contact with members of staff from the year group team. If you require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us using our email addresses or by making an appointment via the main office.
We very much look forward to working with our Year 2 friends and families this year.

Our PE days this term are Monday(Outdoor PE) and Tuesday(Indoor PE). Please make sure your child has school shorts, school t-shirt, tracksuit if cold, trainers or plimsolls.
It is really important that the children read as often as possible. Please try to read with your child at least three times a week. They will be rewarded with this helping them to make progress with their reading and developing a love of reading, but also with a reading raffle ticket which could mean they win a new book!
In addition, weekly bronze, silver and gold maths challenges are sent home weekly. Please complete 1,2 or 3 challenges and return by Friday.
Weekly spellings are also sent home via a QR code linked to Spelling Shed. There is also a termly 'pick and mix' style grid for children to choose an activity to complete. All completed home learning is rewarded back in school with Dojo points and a celebration board.
The children are enrolled on Accelerated Reader which provides comprehension quizzes. The results of these can be viewed at home.
Children use a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, and you to share information about children's progress in Accelerated Reader. You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. Children have been given their user names and passwords. To log in to Renaissance Home Connect Website:

I have had a couple of questions about logging on from home. First - this is definitely possible, they can do quizzes and children can also use myON e-book library and daily myON News service - freely available for the duration of the closures. It will allow pupils to access at home, on tablet and laptop, an e-library of over 7000 books. Children can browse through books on myON. Once they have read the book, they can then log into your schools Renaissance site and click the Accelerated Reader tile. They can then search for the book and take a quiz. Please note that not all books on myON are quizzed.
