Hello Year 2! Don't forget to start your day with a workout.

English: Use your plan to write a poem about your chosen season. Think about nature and the changes that happen in that season and remember to use lots of description words.

Here’s an example:-

SPRING

Spring is here!

Spring is here!

Small green shoots appear

Days grow longer

Trees covered in pink fluffy blossom

The hedgehog wakens from his deep winter sleep

The sun warms the earth

Spring is here!

SPELLINGS

Parents: In year 2, the types of spellings and spelling patterns that children are expected to know continues to increase. As well as further ‘common exception words’ (words that follow the usual rules but are used regularly), there is a whole series of spelling patterns and rules for children to learn. We often find that getting children to learn spellings is one thing, but then getting them to use them in their everyday writing is another. One of the methods which works well is ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ – as the title suggests, children are encouraged to look at the word, say it out loud, cover it up, have a go at writing it and then check if it is correct. Having two or three tries means they can correct any errors. The words on this list focus on the /s/sound spelt ‘c’.
