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.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. As our PE lessons are outdoors on a Monday, please ensure that you bring trainers into school on this day every week.
Seesaw is an online learning tool. Each child has their own Seesaw account and this can be used at home to access e-books for your child to read over the weekend. You can also see work which your child has produced in class.
Please download the app and encourage your child to use it. Seesaw home learning codes have been sent home with your child but if you require the home learning code again, please ask.
Your child will bring their book bag home every night and these need to be returned to school on a daily basis. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Please encourage your child to read at home.
Spellings and Homework
Every Thursday, your child will be given words to practise which we have been learning in class that week. Please support your child to practise reading and writing these words at home.
Your child will also bring home a handwriting sheet every Thursday. It is important that your child practises writing the letters to ensure correct formation. This does not need to be returned back to school.
