Welcome to Yellowhammers
Hello, I'm Miss Blyth and I am very excited to be teaching in Year 2 this year, this is my fourth year teaching at Coates Primary School and I am the RE lead at this school. I am particularly interested in travelling and love exploring new places. I really enjoy sport and I love to run. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
Topics throughout the year
Autumn One - Amazing Africa
Autumn Two- Guess who?
Spring One - Ship Ahoy!
Spring Two - An adventure with Bear Grylls
Summer One - A historic adventure around Coates
Summer 2- Can you walk with dinosaurs?
This year, we are going to start working on our times tables. To support this, we will be using Times Table Rockstars.
Teach your Monster to Read!
We have a fab new platform for the children to practise their phonics skills at home and at school. It is called Teach your Monster to Read. It is free to use on an internet browser. The children have been shown how to use it and are very excited to use it!
Please see the link below.
I would love the children to use Bug Club at home to help them with their reading skills. There are lots of fabulous texts: comics, stories, plays, information texts and poems. Please encourage your child to read at home using Bug Club. It can be found following the link below. I will be sending home the children's log-in with the school code- wklh.
All of the reading stages have been updated there are lots of books to discover!
Weekly homework challenges include: spellings, reading, Times Table Rock Stars and Bug Club.
Each week we will be sending out a variety of home learning. This will be set on a Thursday and need to be handed in, on Google Classroom, on a Tuesday.
Children are expected to read at home 5 times a week.
If your child is having a school dinner then please share the different options available with them so that they know whether they are having the meat, vegetarian, pick'n'mix or jacket potato selection.
If you have any questions throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me.
