Year 2 Rabbits 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Year 2 Rabbits!
Welcome to Year 2 Rabbits! Year 2 is an exciting and memorable year for the children. It is their final year in KS1 before they move up to KS2. This year they will continue to develop social skills and important life skills. I have been teaching in Year 2 for four years this year and I love teaching this year group. I love seeing the children grow as they continue to develop their own personallities.
Our topic in the Autumn term is 'Down in the Deep Dark Woods'. We will be focussing largely on Geography, partcularly map skills.
Please follow our school twitter page @AbingdonPrimary to see updates of exciting things going on in our class! This is where you will find photographs and vidoes of the lovely things your children are doing at school!

Important Notes for parents
The children will have PE twice a week, once with the class teacher and once with the coaches. The children will have PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. The children should come to school wearing their PE kit and they will stay in their kit all day. PE kit must be a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers.
Please can any parents/carers make sure they are wearing a mask to drop off and pick up their child. The class teacher will also be wearing a mask at the classroom door.
Year 2 Statutory spellings
Below is a list of spellings children in Year 2 should know how to read and write by the end of Year 2. Please practise these where possible. All will be sent throughout the year as weekly spelling practise and repeated to store them to memory.

In Year 2 we operate a whole class reward system, where we strive to earn an exciting reward! In our class we collect 'Compliment cookies'. If a member of staff gives the whole class a compliment we can put a cookie in the jar. Once the jar is full we get to choose a whole class reward.
This half term we earnt all our cookies so we had a film and popcorn afternoon!
Other class rewards may be:baking,extra playtime, choosing time or crafting.
At Abingdon we use Class Dojo which is embedded within every year group. We use Class Dojo to engage parents by sharing photos and vidoes of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for parents and teachers to communicate.
