Year 2 2021 - 2022

Ms Hudson

Ms Hudson, Mrs Preston, Mrs Williams and Mrs Brant would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 2! 

Our topic for this half term (Spring 1) is Amazing Animals. Our PSHE is all about keeping safe and in RE we are leaning about keeping ourselves safe.

In English, we are using the ‘Read to Write’ scheme.  Our text is ‘Bog Baby’ by Jeanne Willis. We will be focusing on narrative and also writing a set of instructions.

In Maths, we are continuing to learn about multiplication and division. It would be great if you could continue to work on counting in 2s 3s 5s and 10s. We will send home log-ins so the children can use Numbots and Times Tables Rockstars to support their learning.

We will alternate between History and Geography each half term. This half term it is the turn of Geography and we will be learning all about China.

Likewise, Art and DT alternate each half term. This half term we will be developing our sewing skills in DT.  We will be making a pouch to hold a small object.

Science is completed every week and we are looking at animals including humans during this half term. ICT is also taught weekly and we are currently looking at ‘questioning’ in order to create pictograms, binary trees and databases. You will find our computer rules in order to keep us safe on the website.

Our PE lessons will be on Thursday with PDS. Please come into school in your PE kit. Don't forget to remove/cover any jewellery (including earrings) and make sure your hair is tied up if it is long.

Music this half term has the exciting title ‘I wanna play in a band’. Who knows, we may see some of year 2 in the bands of the future!

Reading books are changed on Thursdays. Please read at least 3 times a week and sign the yellow log book. There is no need to leave a comment but thank you to those that do.

Spellings are sent home on Thursdays and tested on the following Friday. Please continue to practise common exception words at home.

For anyone who is still unsure of how to pronounce phonic sounds, please see this link below for three videos on how to do it! You will need to scroll down the page.
