Welcome to Hedgehogs Class Page!

We are Year 2 and share our class with Mrs Warland, Miss O'Brien, Mrs Horne and Miss Harding.

          

 

A typical day in Year 2:

We start our day with a morning job. This could be maths, English or a thinking task. How would you answer these questions?

          1. If a pigeon could talk, what would it say?

          2. Would you rather the world was made of sand or mud?

          3. What would it be like if you could only eat chicken?

 

After morning job, we complete an English task. This is split into two parts - Reading and Writing.  Mrs Warland gives us tasks about a book and we respond to them in different ways. Sometimes we write about them, sometimes we discuss what we found out, sometimes we roleplay. Our books for the Summer Term are these:

 

           

 

We are going to be finding out about how one plastic bag can change the world before thinking about what we could do about it.

 

After break, our main lesson is maths. We have recently started using Rekenreks to help us become more fluent with our number recall.  We love using a range of different concrete resources to help us with our learning.  We use numicon, coins, multilink and much more to help us bring our learning to life.

                

 

During the morning we always have time for spelling too. Each week there is a new spelling rule for us to practise. During the next half term our spellings are:

During the afternoon, we complete our wider curriculum learning. This includes Computing, PE, RE, PSHE, History, Geography, DT, Art, Music and Science. We start every afternoon completing 15 minutes of handwriting. At 2:40pm everyday, we join Miss Seed for Collective Reflection. During our afternoon learning, we take part in a range of tasks. As a class, we love to work in small groups and create presentations or puppet shows to explain our understanding of the learning. Sometimes we complete our jobs independently, but our learning value of Together is really important to us as a class.

            

 

How to help at home:

Reading is always the first thing on our list of things to do at home.

Remember, we also have Google Classroom that contains the home learning for each week and different activities.
