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
I have uploaded a few different resources below for you to use with the children if you wish. Don't forget sharing stories, measuring things in the house, counting money, shape hunting and practising spellings or times tables.
Don't forget to keep checking back as I will carry on adding fun activities and links to any exciting games or videos for you. Watch out for any sneaky Secret Agent Training Challenges that may have hidden themselves in all the resources I have left for you!
Thinking of you all and we hope you all stay safe in this troubling time. We hope to see you very soon!

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!
At the end of Key Stage 1 children are required to sit their SATs tests. At St Mary's we aim to make this as stress free and relaxed for the children as possible. The SATs period for KS1 is the month of May.
Our SATs will take place on the week beginning 18th May 2020. Please make sure the children are in school and on time for this week. I have attached a few helpful websites and videos to provide more information about the tests and what the children will be completing. Please note that we have been practicing these tests in the classroom so the children are aware of the layout and how the tests work.
If you have any questions at all please come and speak to me!

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
