Welcome to Year 2. 

  

Reading 

The expectation in Year 2 is for the children to read five times independently at home as part of their homework. Reading books are able to be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Children will bring home a bug club reading book and at times other books including a phonics book and/or reading for pleasure book. If your child finishes a book before the set changing days, there are activities to complete inside the cover of the book, extra online books are available via bug club or they could read a book from home for pleasure.  Reading diaries will be monitored weekly. House points and raffle tickets for the reading draw will awarded for five or more signatures.  

***Remember to keep filling out your reading bingo boards in your reading diary.***

  

English 

For this term our focus in English is writing based on the book 'Meerkat Mail' by  Emily Gravett.  The children will be writing a variety of different types of text including character and setting descriptions, postcards and short stories.

  

Mathematics 

This term, work will be related to time, mass, capacity and temperature whilst also revising the written methods for the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Times tables and number bonds continue to be an important focus in Year 2. Please encourage your child to practise their tables as often as possible, both mentally and using their TT Rockstars log in. Please contact their class teacher if you need a reminder of the password for this. 

Children will be completing weekly Frog Maths test to check their recall of multiplication facts. Children will have the opportunity to practise these questions prior to the test through their maths homework activity. Maths homework books will be monitored weekly, they should be handed in on a Wednesday and a new sheet will be given out each Friday. In addition to this, near the end of last term we introduced the Mathshed homework, this will continue to be set weekly so keep checking the website.

  

Science 

Our Science focus this half term is Materials. Children will investigate objects to determine the material it is made from and the properties of that type of material. 

 

P.E. and Swimming

P.E kits are still required to be worn to school on the day of your child’s P.E. lesson. Just a reminder that the school P.E. kit consists of plain black shorts or joggers, a black sweatshirt or hoody and white t-shirt (with or without the school logo) and trainers. As the weather gets warmer, please remember that children will need sun cream and a hat. Please ensure that if your child wears earrings to school, these are either able to be removed by the child themselves or taped up with tape provided from home.

-All Year 2 children will be doing outdoor PE on a Monday.

-2L and 2W will also have outdoor PE on a Wednesday so will be required to wear their PE kit to school on this day, also.

-2HP are swimming in the first half term and therefore will need their swimming kit in school each Wednesday.

-2L will be swimming for the second half term.
