Welcome to Year 2!
Miss Shanahan and Miss Pandya hope you enjoy looking around our page to find the interesting things the children of Year 2 are learning about. We would love it if you could let us know things you would like to see, things that are useful to you as we want to work closely with our families and improve the partnership between home and school. We hope you enjoy our page and it looks as exciting as it has been in class!
We will be using Google Classroom to set activities for the children to complete. This week, we would like children to complete the science activity that has been shared there, reply to to your teacher in the weekly communication log and listen to the daily reader that has been uploaded.
You can also work through the activities provided by BBC Bitesize (please note, these are not materials created by Coppice staff so we cannot take responsibility for the content).
From the 27th April, you will be able to access materials that class teachers have prepared on Google Classroom including maths, English, comprehension and a topic such as science, music etc.
We hope you are staying safe, healthy and happy.
Miss Shanahan and Miss Pandya
Find below work packs and additional websites/games/outdoor activities you can be doing with your children during this time.
Hope you are all well and safe.
Miss Shanahan and Miss Pandya.

How to listen to a child's reading
1) Find a comfy place to sit and ensure you can both see the book.
2) Talk a little bit about the book - have they read any of it before? What happened? If not, look at the cover together and discuss what you notice?
3) Allow the child to start reading when ready.
4) Try not to interrupt them if they make a mistake; allow them time to spot their own mistakes and correct.
5) If they don't self-correct, ask them to take a look at that bit again and re-read. Provide a prompt if needed.
6) Listen out for the following:
-expression: do they vary how it sounds depending on what the words are?
-word recognition: how quickly they can recognise and read the words on the page.
-rhythm/phrasing: how do they group the words they are reading? Single word or in groups of 2 or 3 or even longer phrases?
-smoothness: does the reading flow well or does it sound choppy? Do they use punctuation well? Ensure they stop at full stops and don't run on into the next sentence.
Other ways to read:
A) Paired reading - take it in turns to read sentences or sections of text
B) Echo reading - you read a sentence or section of text and then the child reads it back to you.
