Dahl Class Year 2
Welcome to Dahl Class!
You can use this page of the website to find out about Year 2's weekly timetable, what topics we will be studying during the current term and throughout the year, and find out what each week's homework is.
Homework is due in on a Friday. Reading books will be changed on a Wednesday and a Friday when possible, but please ensure that your child brings their reading book in to school every day. Friday will also be PE days so please ensure that your child's trainers or plimsolls are in school, their hair is tied up and if possible earrings are removed.
We will also add details of the fun activities we have been taking part in.
We hope the children will have a fantastic year with us in Year 2.
If you have any questions please do come and see us.

Home Learning for School Closures
Hi Year 2,
We hope you are all well and are still working hard with your home learning. We just wanted to take this opportunity to say well done to all the parents, carers, brothers and sisters who are helping to educate our class at home. You are all doing an amazing job and we are so thankful for your support at this difficult time.
Monday 18th May should have marked the beginning of Year 2's SATs week. Due to our current circumstances this is no longer taking place. Your children have worked their socks off to learn a huge amount of new information and skills in a short space of time to prepare themselves for their SATS. No matter what has happened you should all be very proud of your hardworking children, because we are! This week give your children great big hugs from us both and tell them we are proud of how well they are coping with the lockdown. We miss them all terribly and cannot wait to hopefully see you all soon. Please keep sending us pictures of the work you have been completing and pictures of what you are getting up to, even if it isn't school work. Your pictures really make us smile so please keep them coming.
Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you soon.
Miss Orpin and Miss Leadbeater.

Ten a Day Maths Challenge
Year 2 Maths Club
All of the children in Year 2 are invited to Maths Club at 8:20am everyday before school. In Maths Club the children recap previous things we have learnt in class, play games and practise SATs questions. In previous years we have found that the children who came to Maths Club regularly became more confident in their own Maths ability and therefore performed better in their Year 2 SATs.
We hope to see as many of you as possible there!
This is your homework for the week. If you need any of the sheets again please come and ask!
Find Year 2's Yearly Plan, Timetable and Topic Webs below:
This term in English we are reading:
- "Jim and the Beanstalk" by Raymond Briggs.
- "Rapunzel" by Bethan Woollvin.
Please DO NOT read these books with your children as it will ruin the slow build up and surprise we use in our English lessons.
If you would like to read a similar book to your child then this term I would recommend:
- "Little Red" by Bethan Woollvin
- "Jack and the Baked Beanstalk" by Colin Stimpson
- "Trust Me, Jack's Beanstalk Stinks!" by Eric Braun
- "Jack and the Jelly Bean Stalk" by Rachael Mortimer
- "Hansel & Gretel" by Bethan Woollvin
- "Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion" by Alex T . Smith
- "Little Red Hood" by Marjolaine Leray
- "How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth" by Michelle Robinson and Kate Hindley
