Year 2 - Badgers

Welcome to the Badgers class page.

 

Miss Campbell is the class teacher.

Mrs Robertson is the Learning Support Assistant in the class.

 

This page will keep you well informed of what Badgers are learning each term as well as important pieces of information.

 

 

What have we been learning?

In English, our class text is Meerkat Mail (see above). Through Talk for Writing, we have learned the story and found out about expanded noun phrases, alliteration, adjectives and conjunctions.  Our main aim is to write an extra section into Meerkat Mail, using the same features that the author Emily Gravett used to make the story brilliant!

 

In Maths, we have been developing our understanding of place value, and have become experts at partitioning two digit numbers!  After half term, we will be learning to compare and order numbers, which will then lead on to addition and subtraction.

 

This term's topic is 'Wacky Races', so we have been learning all about the different ways in which we travel.  We have created a timeline of the history of transport and have found out all about Viking Longboats, drawing our own prow and naming our boats.  After half term we will have a go at making one!

Homework

10 – 15 minutes each day:

Daily reading, or at least 3 times a week.

Online 'Mathletics' activities are assigned to all children on a weekly basis.

Spelling Practice – spellings are given out every week. 

 

There may also be further fun activities given to children to complete, however these will be optional. Children will be rewarded with Dojos or prizes if they complete these activities.

PE Days:

Wednesdays and Thursdays.  


We also take part in the daily 'Golden Mile' every afternoon.

Children may, however, be required to do physical activities which require changing into their PE kits at other times of the week too, so ideally we would ask for them to bring their PE kit in on Monday and take it home on Friday if it requires washing.

PE Kit essentials: Red shorts or Jogging bottoms in cold weather, white T-Shirt with St Michael's badge, plimsolls/trainers.
 
All uniform can be purchased from the Brigade online store.
