Spring 2 2021
Welcome to Year 2.
We are now back in school full time and it is wonderful to have the children back.
The expectation still continues in Year 2 for the children to read five times independently at home for homework. We are now using our new reading scheme and therefore children will now be bringing home new books by the end of the first week. Please sign any reading that has been completed and upload a photo of your child's Reading Record onto their Seesaw account on a Friday. House points and raffle tickets will still be awarded for five or more signatures.
For this period before Easter we will be completing a topic on Africa and writing will be linked to a text called Meerkat Mail.
This term, work will continue on calculation, using at different methods for 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.
Our science focus this half term is Habitats.
History and Geography
We will be focusing on Africa this term to teach the children about different cultures and human and physical features.
