Welcome to The Colour Monsters Y2F
Enjoy Respect Succeed
It is a pleasure to welcome your children to The Colour Monsters.
Our class contains enthusiastic, happy and charismatic children. We aim to work hard but laugh a lot along the way.
Updates of your children enjoying their learning will be posted on Class Dojo weekly so make sure you like and enjoy these snap shots.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at school or at the door upon collection.
Miss Forsyth, Miss Vickers & Mrs Harrison
Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities throughout the week to read with an adult. Book will be changed every Thursday.
Your child will also choose a pleasure for reading book on Thursday. This can be enjoyed at bedtime, snuggled up on the sofa or enjoyed with family.
Miss Forsyth is out of class on a Monday afternoon and all day Friday. For this session, Miss Vickers will be in class to continue to develop their learning. I am sure they will have lots of fun with her too.
Author of the Term
In Year 2, children are expected to complete one piece of homework a week.
Your child has been provided with both CGP English and maths books to complete their homework in. Each week, they will be provided with different page numbers in order to complete different tasks from each book!
Once the children have completed an activity they will receive a stamp on their homework card. This adds up to prizes once they have reached 10.
Weekly spellings will be every Wednesday. You should practise these throughout the week, ready to be tested on these on Wednesday morning.
You will find a copy of these spellings at the beginning of their reading records.
PE will take place every Monday and our outdoor session is on Thursday.
The children must have a PE kit in school. During this cold term, children can wear plain tracksuit bottoms and a jumper/hoodie.
We will send it home at the end of every half term.
As you can imagine, we have a lot of kit. Please ensure your child's kit is clearly labelled with your child's name or initials and Y2F.
It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit or vegetables and milk. We also encourage your child to bring water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch.
Your child may bring a water bottle from home which can stay in school and we will send them home every Friday to be washed.

Purpose for writing- Instructions
Today we invited Mrs Moretta into class to make Lancashire Chorley Cakes. We’ve been working hard all week to write a set of instructions using time adverbs, ly ending words and adjectives. Not to mention all of the vocabulary we included. The children became ‘the bosses’ and instructed Mrs Moretta clearly. Well done Y2.
Year 2 Long Term Overview
Spring 1 Learning Overview
Our learning so far...
In English we have have been learning how to navigate a contents page in a wolf information text. Miss Forsyth gave us some key questions about wolves and we had to locate the information by using the contents page and looking at page numbers. The children have identified unfamiliar vocabulary in a text book and discussed its meaning using word hippo.
Experiences for writing
Year 2 went flying into their next topic when some special visitors landed. We met Ozlo, Tyke and Jeff the mighty falcon. The children learnt lots of interesting facts about these birds of prey and asked our visitor interesting questions.
