Year 2 Newsletter


 

Welcome back to Year 2! SPRING TERM 2019

We are all looking forward to an exciting new term!

Literacy

During our literacy sessions, we will be looking at different styles of poetry and getting the children to recite them. Alongside this, we will be reading Katie Morag stories and comparing stories by Anthony Brown.  In writing, we will be learning how we can use different sentence types and develop vocabulary to help add description and detail to our writing.

Numeracy

In numeracy, we will start by revisiting place value and then looking at multiplication and division linked to fractions. We will continue to practice the basic skills of addition, subtraction, number bonds, adding three 1-digit numbers and missing number problems. All children should know their 2,5 and 10 x tables and corresponding division facts and number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.

Theme

This term our theme is Our World. During this topic we will be comparing the UK to India. As part of this topic, we will be having an India day in February.

Science

Our science topic this term is plants. The children will be classifying plants and looking at how they grow. They will investigate the factors that influence germination.

P.E and Uniform

Our P.E. day is still Monday’s but we would like your child to keep their kit in school all week so that we can go outside to and have additional P.E. on other days. Please ensure that all PE kit, Uniform, clothing accessories are all clearly labelled with your child’s name and class. Forest Schools will continue to be on Monday’s also every other week so we would like your child to bring in extra clothes for this.

Home-Work and Home-Readers 

Just a reminder that all children need to have their home reader diaries signed with a comment in order for their books to be changed. Everyone has been brilliant with bringing their homework in on the correct days, so let’s keep it up for the new term!
