Welcome to Year 2
Click on the tree below or check out ClassDojo to see what amazing things we have been up to in Year 2.
In Year 2 learning is both challenging and fun and a place where we visit many exciting topics throughout the course of the year. Some topics we will cover this year include Dinosaurs, Festivals, The Great Fire, Africa, The Seaside and World Cup 2018.
Our topics for the Autumn Term are Land of the Dinosaurs and Let's Celebrate. We will be looking at when the dinosaurs roamed our planet and what happened to them. We will also be comparing lots of different dinosaurs and classifying them into different groups. To finish we will be creating our own dinosaur, writing about how to look after it and then making it as a model. After the half term break we will move on to look at festivals. From October to December there are lots of specials days to look at including Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Advent and Christmas.
We have PE in Year 2 on Wednesday and Thursday and as such I am asking that all children keep a PE kit in school for these sessions with each item of clothing labelled with a name. We also have swimming on Wednesday afternoon. The groups will be the same as in Year 1, Group 1 will be going first on Wednesday 13th September 2017.
Reading books are changed daily as long as the reading record has been signed to say that your child has read. Points will also be collected for our whole school reading challenge in which a class has the chance to win a big mystery prize at the end of the half term.
Spellings and Times Table Homework is given out every Friday and children have until the following Thursday to complete and return it. This spelling sheet does not need to be returned to school and should be kept at home to practice. There may be times during the year where small writing tasks or project style activities are sent home instead of times tables.
In Year 2, I have an open door policy and should you have any queries or concerns please feel free to pop in at the end of the day, catch me on the yard, send me a message below or ring to arrange an appointment at a convenient time.
Thank you in advance for all of your support.
