Welcome to Year 2
Miss Cunnane and Mrs Judge
Skills Builder - Skills we are working on improving throughout the year.
Reading should be done daily and recorded in your child's reading record.
Homework is given out on a Wednesday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Our weekly spelling test is on a Wednesday.
P.E. days are on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school. They will change for PE in school and will take their kit home each half term to be washed.
In Maths this half term we are focusing on addition and subtraction. We will be using our knowledge of place value to add and subtract two-digit numbers. We are continuing to improve the fluency of our 2, 5 and 10 times table recall.
Some useful Maths games sites:
In Literacy this half term we will be looking at different types of poetry and writing our own poem. We will be using non-fiction texts about Festivals and Celebrations and recognising the features they use to give information.
In RE this half term we are learning about The Mystery of God. We will learn what is meant by a mystery and reflect on some mysteries. We will think about why the birth of Jesus is so important for us.
In Science this half term we are learning about different Materials. We will be identifying and naming different materials and their uses. We will explore how the shape of some materials can be changed. We will be comparing how some materials are more suitable than others for different purposes.
In Topic this half term we are learning about Celebrations. We will be learning about some of Festivals and Celebrations that are celebrated throughout the year across the world.
We had lots of fun taking part in our Sponsored Triathlon. We found it a little bit tricky but we persevered and tried our best. Thank you to all our Sponsors!
