Welcome to Year 2 we hope that you are all well rested after the summer and ready for a fun filled year with lots of exciting learning opportunities.
We will be intrepid explorers this year have already started exploring the UK. We will be looking at maps, using atlases and globes and learning about the four countries that make up the UK.
In literacy the children will be learning about traditional stories to support their writing, at the moment we are focusing on the use of punctuation and sentence structure.
In numeracy we are learning about place value, partitioning, time and multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, and by the end of the year this will include 3’s and 4’s.
Your child’s class teacher will tell you which day the children will be changing their reading books but it would be a very good idea for the children to bring their book bags every day. Please fill in the child’s reading record every time they read to an adult as it is very helpful to be able to track the children’s progress.
Every Friday the children will be given a list of spellings to learn and they will be tested the following Friday.
All of the children have been given a username and password for IXL if possible please allow them to go on to the website.
PE will be on a Tuesday and the children will need their PE kits every week.
Please try and have your children at school for the 8.45 study start as this is extra time for your child to be learning.
Please check the school website as we will be making regular updates to the Year 2.
The Year 2 team are all looking forward to what we are sure, will be a very a successful year.
Our curriculum overviews gives you an idea of which topic your child will be studying at which point during the school year.
