We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Easter break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term.
The Summer term is another busy term for children in Year 2. In English, children will be learning about non-chronological reports, extended stories, silly poems and persuasive writing. A range of punctuation will continue to be applied within writing too. In Maths, children will continue to practise and apply their arithmetic skills. They will also learn the features of 2D and 3D shapes and will use the language linked with the position and direction of objects.
As Scientists, children will be learning about plants and will be investigating germination and in Geography, children will be comparing Wolverhampton to Grenada. In Art, children will be learning about Vincent Van Gogh and his famous sunflowers. After half term, we will study an important historical event in History, the Gunpowder Plot, and in DT, we will be sewing our own sunflowers.
PE sessions for Class 2 will take place on a Wednesdays and Fridays for the first half term, within each term, and Mondays and Wednesdays in each second half term.
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. Should you wish, PE kit can be purchased from the school office. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
Children in Year 2 receive regular maths and English homework. Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested on the following Friday. Children are still expected to complete their reading comprehension homework and questions are usually found inside the front cover of their reading book. Children should complete at least one comprehension per week. Additional creative homework will also be given out every half term.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day.
Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
