Robins Class 2 2020 - 2021

Mrs Sarginson

Welcome to Class 2 Robins

Mrs Sarginson teaches Year 2 all day on Monday and Tuesday and on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Miss Bettley and Mrs Newman take over on Fridays and the remaining afternoons.  We are a small team of 11 friends who work hard and support each other in our learning.

When we arrive in the morning, we settle down to our SODA - a maths or SPaG related task.  We do spelling and our maths lesson before play time and afterwards we do handwriting and English, followed by a reading session.  

Some things will be a little different for a while... Here are a few reminders:

  • We won't be using cups for the water machines at the moment, so please bring a water bottle every day (can be refilled as required during the day)
  • No bags to be brought to school.  Just lunchbox, snack and water bottle please. All will be wiped down on entry to the classroom
  • We won't be sending reading books and records to and fro everyday. Please jot comments as usual in the reading record but only send them in with books to be changed on a MONDAY and/or THURSDAY
  • Year 2 to arrive between 8.50am and 9am.  Finishing at 3.00pm for the moment
  • Homework will be set on the school website on THURSDAYs and can be returned for feedback electronically 
  • PE kit to be worn to school on Mondays and Fridays

This term we will be using the book ‘Meerkat Mail’ in English which links to our science topic of living things and their habitats and our geography work on continents.

In Maths this half term we are focusing on revision of the four operations and learning to tell the time. We are also working on our number fluency and place value.  Asking your child quickfire addition/subtraction/ times tables/number bond questions on the way to or from school will be hugely beneficial.

It is very important to hear your child read as often as possible - aim for every day!  A quick 5 or 10 minutes is plenty. In school we regularly listen to children read individually and in guided groups.

 Rules for online safety

  1. I will tell my parents/guardians right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.
  2. I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking it with my parents/guardians.
  3. I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in anyway make me feel uncomfortable.  It is not my fault if I get a message like that.  If I do I will tell my parents/guardians right away.
  4. I will talk with my parents/guardians so that we can set up rules for going on-line.  We will decide upon the time of day that I can be on-line, the length of time I can be on-line and appropriate areas for me to visit.  I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
  5. I will not give out my internet password to anyone (even my best friends) other than my parents/guardians.
  6. I will check with my parents/guardians before downloading or installing software or doing anything that could possibly hurt our computer or jeopardize my family’s privacy.
  7. I will be a good citizen and not do anything that hurts other people or is against the law.
  8. I will help my parents understand how to have fun and learn things on-line and teach them things about the internet, computers and other technology.
  9. If I am worried about anything I will talk to an adult.
