The Year Two team are made up of:
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to one of us.
During this term we will begin our topic of Night and Day, where we will learn about nocturnal animals and mini beasts. In Science we will be investigating how animals and their habitats. In RE we will be learning about Judaism. In English we will study texts linked to nocturnal animals and mini beasts. In Maths the children will follow the curriculum to build upon their number skills, solving number problems and learning strategies to add, subtract, multiply and divide. They will also develop their skills of reasoning - explaining how they came up with an answer and explaining patterns they can see.
In Year Two please remember to bring in the following items labelled with your child's name:
In Year Two we will look at the children's school reading books every day, therefore please ensure your child brings in their reading books and records. Books will be changed every day but we are aware that sometimes only a page or chapter is read this is absolutely brilliant please still bring in the reading record as we like to look at what reading has taken place.
We will continue to give Maths homework in the form of Big Maths. We will hand out practise sheets as and when the children request them, we do not need the practise sheets to be handed back to us. Each week the children will be timed to see how many questions they can complete, their achievements will be celebrated and their sheet sent home so you can see where they went wrong and where they went well.
This term we will send home a list of the Year 2 Common Exception Words. These are the words the children are expected to be able to read and spell correctly by the end of Year 2. Please spend time practising these words, reading and spelling them. We won't be testing the children on them but we will expect to see them being spelt correctly in their learning. Next term we will send home spellings with an increased focus on your child's spelling needs. Click here for a list of words
If you have any spare time (half an hour or an hour) and you would like to help in class, listening to children read, filing work or preparing displays please speak to your child's class teacher as we would really LOVE to have as many helpers as possible.
