Welcome to the Year 2 webpage.
We are very happy to have all the children back in school and to be working with you all again this year. Year 2 is a really significant year in the children’s lives in Hawthorn as they embark on their final year in Key Stage 1 and prepare for Key Stage 2. We encourage the children to be confident, independent learners and aim to develop a ‘can-do’ attitude to work and play.
Reading Records and Seesaw
Home learning will be set via Seesaw and can be responded to directly using this app. Seesaw can be used to see work your child has produced in class as we also upload some of our classwork onto the app.
Please encourage your child to read at home, every Monday reading books are sent home in the children's book bags, these then need to be returned into school on a Thursday. Then on a Friday an online E-book is uploaded onto Seesaw for your child to read each week, you can write a comment on the SeeSaw app to show you have read with your child.
The topics for Year 2 are:
• Great Fire of London/Great Fire of Newcastle
• Amazing animals with links to Africa?
• Why do we love to be beside the seaside?
• Living Things and their Habitats
Start of the day - Year 2 classes start at 8.50 am The children will be collected from the MUGA yard. The children are brought to their by their teacher or TA. Please remember to keep yourself socially distant from people not in your household and follow the system in place for dropping off your child. Children who miss even a few minutes of the school day can miss out on vital aspects of the curriculum.
End of the day - Year 2 finishes at 3:20 pm (Mon-Thurs) and 1:20 pm only on Fridays. Please be prompt in collecting your child as Year 1 leave from the same gate at 3:30 pm. Please wait in a socially-distanced manner.
This is on a Monday. Each child has their own P.E. kit in school which they use for the lesson so there is no need to send any sports clothing in.
