Year 2 (Dragonfly)

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Dragonfly Class!

 

Staff in Dragonfly Class
We are lucky to have excellent, hard-working staff in our classroom. Mrs Dowd is one of our teaching assistants and she will be in class every morning to support the children and their learning. Miss Cole will also be supporting the class every morning.

 

Reading
The children are able to change their books on when they come into school on their allocated day- These days are below. Before they do this, all of they books they have read previously needs to have been recorded into their yellow reading records. When your child changes their books, Mrs Dowd will be checking their reading records for 5x reading. Every time your child reads 5 times a marble is placed in our jar. When the jar is full, the whole class will get a treat!

 

Book Changing Days:

 

St David- Monday

St Patrick- Tuesday

St George- Wednesday

St Andrew- Thursday


Uniform
Please ensure all uniform, PE kits, bags, hats and scarves are named. We endeavour to return as much as possible but without names this makes returning lost things really difficult.

Drink and fruit
Your child will need to bring in a named water bottle each day. We are able to refill the bottles if needed.

What are Dragonflies learning about?
 

The class topic for term 3 is...

Amazing Africa!

 

The class will be the continent of Africa in depth. They will use atlases to explore whether Africa is near the equator, which hemisphere it is in and which oceans surround it. They will then go on to learn about Kenya and its capital Nairobi and find out the food, culture, education and human and physical features. The class will then explore the capital of England and compare London to Nairobi.

 

In Literacy the children will be focusing on African texts including Handa’s Noisy Night, Mama Panya's Pancakes and Letters to Africa. They will then complete different tasks linked to leaflets, recounts and instruction writing.
