Hello and welcome to the Year 2 page for 2020-2021. Any useful information will be posted on here. In addition please see the 'useful websites' tab at the top of the page with other learning websites that you can use to support your child's learning. I will also post solutions to homework set on this page when applicable.
As part of international week this week we have been learning about the country of Wales.
Look at the gallery below to find out some of the things we have been doing.
This file is packed full of Keys Maths Facts that your child should know! Encouraging the children to know these facts is a task which we as staff and you as parents must work together to achieve. Finding a few minutes when possible (for example, three times every week) to quiz the children in a fun, stress-free situation is the best method to promote learning and importantly to make sure the children do not forget!
We learnt that there are traditional cakes associated with Wales called Welsh cakes. They are a bit like flat scones and very tasty.
We learnt that the national flower of Wales is a daffodil and that Wales also has another national emblem which is a leek. On St David's day (the patron saint of Wales) people wear daffodils and leek badges. We made some daffodils and also our own leek badges to wear. The dragon is a symbol on the Welsh flag and we created our own Welsh dragon using handprints. It was a fun, messy and busy afternoon!
