Welcome to Year 2!

In Year 2 our teachers are Miss Vale (SV) and Mrs Gadsby (RG). Our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Watkins and Mrs Van Cleak.

Hello everyone! We hope you are all keeping safe and well. Here are some ideas and links for home learning. We don't want you to worry about getting everything done, we just want to share some ideas with you and your grown ups. This page will be updated each week with more ideas. The most important thing is that you are all staying safe and enjoying time together. 

If you would like to use Nessy (an online program to support children's reading, writing and spelling) please email office@moonsmoat.worcs.sch.uk with your child's name and we will set this up for you. If your child already has an account, click here to log in using their username. The 'secret word' is WOODLANDMONKEY. To watch a video all about how to use Nessy, please click here.

What an exciting first week back at school! We found lots of interesting clues hidden around the classroom. We worked as a team to work out what we will be learning about in our English lessons. Unicorns! We had a special visit from our very own unicorn expert, Mrs Pearce, who answered all of our questions. We will use these facts to write reports, following the Talk for Writing approach by Pie Corbett. As we learn more about natural disasters, we will apply the skills we have been using in our English lessons to write reports about volcanoes. We are looking forward to a day of exciting science investigations later on this half term!
