Here is some useful and important information for the term ahead.
Reading will be slightly different in Year 2 since children will be taking part in guided reading sessions every morning and will be heard individually across the week too. We like to hear the children read as often as possible so please ensure their reading books are brought into school every day! To ensure the children get the best out of their reading we ask that reading books are changed every Thursday so that this remains in sync with guided reading sessions in school. The children can then acquire a greater understanding of the texts they read alongside their tailored sessions in school. Please ensure the children are familiar with their books and encourage them to answer the comprehension questions at the back to check understanding. I also encourage the children to read other materials outside of school, whether this be magazines, books at home or other engaging materials personal to them.
PE & Forest School
Tuesday 14th September- Forest School
Tuesday 21st September – PE
Tuesday 28th September – Forest School
Tuesday 5th October- PE
Tuesday 12th October- Forest School
Tuesday 19th October- PE
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for PE and Forest school.
We will also begin journals in school whereby the children can reflect on their learning experiences at school. We would like the children to decorate their journals in their own desired way and make them their own so we kindly ask if your child could bring in materials from home to decorate their front cover. This may include: wallpaper, collage paper, wrapping paper, material, etc.
Thank you for your ongoing support and I look forward to getting to know you even better. If you have any further questions, feel free to come and ask me or email me (email@example.com).
Rabbits Class 2020/2021
Rabbits have been so busy in Term 5! In our space themed topic, we found out about the first man to land on the moon and even discovered a UFO in forest school... some suspect aliens! Meanwhile rabbits class have also joined Professor Klunk on his curious quest and have been helping the faithful friends to look after themselves. They have learnt about habitats and have successfully located some in school. This term, we will be continuing to answer 'What it takes to be a great explorer?' and we welcome Mrs Ilett to join us in the afternoons too. I look forward to the fun times ahead!
Here is some useful information for the term ahead :)

It has been great to see the children earning their reading bugs in celebration assemblies- lets keep this up! Please could reading books come into school every day to ensure we can hear the children read but also so we can log the number of times read at home for reading bugs. Reading books will be changed every Thursday and if you wish to earn more points for your next reading bug, please share your reading eggs too.
-Just an update for you all -
I hope we are all well and adjusting to lockdown 3 as well as can be. The classroom is very quiet without you! I am absolutely gutted that I haven’t been able to meet you all yet and I look forward to the day we return to the classroom. For now, lets zoom rabbits!
I have been very busy preparing materials and resources for you and hope they will be useful to you. Please appreciate that my time spent with the children so far has been very limited due to the current situation we find ourselves in. Therefore, I will be very grateful of any contact and feedback regarding the home learning tasks set and I am very interested to hear how you are all getting on. It has been lovely to see some achievements already!
Hopefully you will have received your letter from Mr Leach with log in details to access your home learning. In the google drive you will find some information to help you find your way around- take a look and if you have any problems just shout! :)
Rabbits, be awesome! Keep smiling. Together, we can hop on through this!
See you on zoom!
Wishing a happy new year to you all! What a strange time we find ourselves in again. I did not expect to start my time at Palmarsh going into another lockdown. I hope we are all keeping well and safe. Despite the current circumstances, I have had the greatest time getting to know Rabbits class!
I will be adding home learning for English, Maths, Phonics and Topic work each week. For this week’s home learning please see the dated attachments below- this includes Maths and English home learning for Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th and Friday 8th January. Mr Leach will be sending you a letter explaining how home learning will work and how you can access this.
For now, if you have any questions about the home learning activities uploaded, please feel free to send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can’t wait for us to be together again and I look forward to the exciting times we will have in the near future. For now, please stay in contact and I will be happy to help with any queries.
Stay safe and keep smiling 😊
Hello and welcome to Year 2!
Scroll down to see our learning in English and Maths and the rest of our curriculum as well as our extra-curricular activities. In Year 2 we are learning about Pirates and the Seas and how they can help us answer our questions.
What would Pirates see on their travels? - Looking at the continents, seas and the world!
Why would the weather be so important? - Learning about the types of weather.
What can we see from our porthole? - Art inspired from views from travels and observation
What do you do if you found yourself shipwrecked? - Making full use of our wonderful forest school (dates below)
There are links and documents below that might be useful for you and your child throughout the year. Have a look at the Key vocabulary for our learning and an overview of what we are going to learn.
Keep revisiting for photos of our Class as we learn and grow at Palmarsh!
Phonics and English:
In Year 2 we are learning how to become fluent in our reading and skilled in our writing - reading at home will greatly help this! Please find the link below for Reading Eggs which the children can use at home - their logins have already gone home, if you require another copy please let me know.
In Class we are following the story of The Pirates of Scurvey Sands and their adventures. We are building up our skillset to be able to write our own narratives! Watch this space for some Pirate adventures.
In Maths this term we are focusing on Place Value and being really confident with our numbers. We started off with a recap of our numbers using nature to help us and we were blown away by the Mathematicians in the class!
Next, we are looking at the place value of numbers and recognising tens and ones and the value of numbers.
(Photos to follow very soon!)
Our Forest School and PE day is a Tuesday. We will be alternating between the two each week; dates are as follows:
