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 always a busy time for children in Year 2.

In English, we will be learning about and reading texts by Road Dahl, applying a range of punctuation and grammar to our writing. In Maths, we will continue to apply our arithmetic knowledge to solving problems while also broadening our knowledge on statistics, position and direction and measurement.

Our first thematic topic this term is ‘Inter-Nation Media Station’ which is a history-based unit about media and broadcasting. Pupils will learn about early methods of communication, leading to the invention of both the television and radio. Our second theme will be ‘Dancing Spy’ which is all about Josephine Baker. Pupils will learn all about her achievements and how she influenced the course of history.

PE sessions for Class 2 will take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times as these sessions may be flexible. 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 will be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.

Children in Year 2 will receive weekly maths, English and science homework, in homework books and online via Purple Mash and My Maths. Spellings will be given out on Friday and tested on the following Friday. Children are expected to complete their reading comprehension questions, which are usually found inside the front cover of their reading book, at least once per week.

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.

We have been having fun exploring different tints and shades in our art learning by making a tribal flag for our tribe teams. We painted tribal symbols that we thought represented us.

We have been investigating whether the tallest people always have the biggest feet. They chose to use a metre stick and measure in cm.

Class 2 had a brilliant time during their bike ability ‘go ride’ sessions. They started by using their balancing skills to travel on the bikes and moved on to pedalling without any stabilisers, some of us even for the first time. Well done!

 

Class 2 have had an amazing time visiting RAF Cosford for our Up Up and Away topic. We watched the 4d cinema, made parachutes and tested them!
