spring 2 - return after school closure
we are excited to have year 2 back in the classroom and get back to learning and having fun as a team.
for the rest of this half term we will be focusing on art and mindfulness in the afternoons and spending time outdoors developing our outdoor area.
our class artist is Georgia o'keefe and we will be studying and creating art work inspired by her. watch out on classdojo for photos of our work and virtual art exhibition.
In maths, we will be focusing on number, place value and the four calculations.
In English, we will be reading 'supertato' and writing our own story as well as lots of shorter pieces of writing. watch out, evil pea is on the loose!

in our topic afternoons, the children will be studying a contrasting country, comparing their life with that of another person throughout history (Christopher Columbus) and learning the 7 continents and where they are on a world map.
please read for 10 minutes with your child at least 4 times a week. books will be changed each Thursday.

my maths is set each Friday for the following friday.
year 2 have pe every Monday and Friday. please wear your pe kit on those days.
it is important that you bring warm clothes such as joggers because we love to do pe come rain or shine!
please speak to your child's class teacher if you are struggling to access any of the homework. in the event of a bubble closing, we will be using dojo to share home learning.
throughout your child's time at Ashton, they will take part in 100 different experiences and activities. this half term we will be completed two of the experiences that we think are important in your child's wider curriculum.
