Eastburn Junior And Infant School

 Year 2

Welcome back to Class 2.

I hope that you've all had a restful half term break.

I have attached a new copy of this term's topic web, giving you a brief outline of what we plan to cover this half term and an accompanying letter to parents and carers.

Thank you for your continued support with your child's learning at home. Daily reading and on-line learning will help to fill the gaps that have been unavoidably created due to the closure of schools.

Every week there will be a new maths challenge assigned to the whole class and every Friday, we will continue to log onto Sumdog and enter the weekly competition (assessing these skills). It is vital that the children continue to log on at home, in order to practise their maths skills and help to fill the gaps in their learning. The challenge is live every Sunday until Thursday.

As you are aware, there is a new weekly activity added to our new additional online learning app 'SeeSaw'. It is essential that your child completes this weekly activity in order for them to become comfortable and practice the skills required for remote learning, in the case that we reluctantly are forced to close the class or school due to Covid 19.

In May, all Year 2 children in the country are required to sit national assessments called SATs. Please take the time to look at the link below and familiarise yourselves with them. We try to make the experience as relaxed as possible, but they are nevertheless a statutory requirement.


I look forward to seeing you all during the parent consultations.
