Otters Class

Year 2 at Trinity aims to provide a happy and seamless transition from year 1, embedding further and developing the skills and knowledge the children have learnt previously.

 

We introduce half termly or termly topics to loosely base and theme learning around. Our Summer topics will be “From Farm to Fork – How does food grow and get to us?” We will be finding out where our food comes from and mapping them from around the world, growing our own veg, creating our own healthy sandwiches.

After half term we will look at  “What life is like on the river Exe”. This will be a geographical based study and will introduce the children to lots of new vocabulary, aerial maps as well as incorporating an exciting school trip along the river Exe.

 

We value the importance of the children having a balanced and rich curriculum experience and so incorporate weekly time in forest school, music lessons and two sessions of PE alongside core subjects like Maths and English. Specialist teachers in Music and Physical Education teach alongside the class teacher to provide a broad and balanced approach to learning

Useful links when schooling at home

  • Doodle Maths –  Every day an assignment is set which once completed will release the “5 a day” and the games. Please do not help your child with this. IT will re-calibrate itself according to how it is completed. Encourage your child to use the HELP tools if they get stuck.
  • AR quizzing – we hope to get online  books released ASAP but children can quiz.
  • Bug Club – for those children still on reading scheme books.
  • Topmarks Maths https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?Subject=16 Please filter by subject – GREAT Maths reinforcement.
  • Epic Books – which is offering a free month for families. This is an EXCELLENT resource which has books, videos, quizzes etc.
