We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable summer break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term. The children appear to be settling well and are enthusiastic to make a start on their learning.
 
The Autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 2. In English, we will be learning about traditional tales and stories with familiar settings while also concentrating on grammar, spelling and punctuation (GPS).  In Maths, we will be recalling number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 while also securing children’s knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction. In Science, we will be studying ‘materials’ and developing children’s scientific enquiry skills.  Foundation subjects will now be taught as part of a thematic approach, which means that children’s learning will follow a theme. Across the Autumn term year 2’s topic will be ‘Up, Up and Away’. Children will be learning about the famous explorer Steve Fossett and will be developing their history and geography knowledge by learning about his life and the continents of the world that he explored, including the different countries of the UK. As part of their DT and Art learning this term, children will also be designing and making their own hot air balloon and creating their own ‘Starry night’ piece in the style of the artist Vincent Van Gogh.
 
For more details about our learning this term, please click on the Autumn Term Curriculum Overview.
 
PE sessions for Class 2 will take place on a Wednesday and Friday for the first half term, within each term, and a Monday and Wednesday 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 (purple book) will also be given out throughout the year.
 
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.

September 2019

Class 2 have been working hard in their science learning to investigate which materials are waterproof and absorbent.

 

Class 2 have had a very exciting start back to the term learning all about our new topic 'Up Up and Away'. We had a strange crash landing in our classroom so we did some investigating and followed clues to find that Russell from Up had landed in our school! Since then we’ve been learning all about flight, we have also been researching hot air balloons using search engines.

In an effort to provide you with as much information as possible, we have included a copy of your child’s timetable. This gives a brief outline of your child’s day but should be viewed as a guide only, as it is often necessary to change lessons as circumstances within school dictate. 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.
