Welcome to Penguins!

Penguins is our Year 2 class. Mrs Ali and Mrs Peters are the class teachers and will be supported by our super teaching assistants, Miss Ishaq, Miss Benjamin and Mrs Baines. Mrs Ali teaches Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Peters will be teaching Thursday and Friday.

The morning session starts at 8.50am until 12.00pm with a 15 minute playtime at 10.45am. The afternoon session starts at 1.00pm and finishes 3.13pm with a 15 minute playtime at 2.00pm.

During the morning, the children are taught phonics along with the core subjects of English and Mathematics. During these sessions, the children will work either as a whole class, in small groups, or 1-1 with an adult.

In the afternoon session, the children will undertake topic related work which covers subjects such as History, Geography, Science, Art, Music, Design& Technology, P.E and ICT. 

Year 2 Topics

Whilst Covid-19 restrictions are in place, please come to school in your full PE kit on your PE days - do not wear school uniform.  

At Hillside we love reading. We believe it is essential for our children's learning as it helps them to develop language skills and increases their knowledge of the world around them. Children must change their home reading books at school, every morning at 8.50am. Please read with your child every evening and write in the reading diary how they have done and anything they struggled with. This should then be returned every day with the reading book for the class teacher to monitor. 

Homework is given out on Fridays and should be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. If it is returned late, it will not be marked. Homework includes a list of spellings to be learnt and either an English, Mathematics or Topic piece of work.  

The children in Penguins class have regular educational visits which may vary according to the topic being studied. All KS1 children go to the pantomime each year and have a summer trip at the end of the year.
