We hope that you and your children had a very enjoyable Christmas break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term.
The Spring term is full of new learning opportunities for the children in Year 2. In English, we will be looking at stories by the same author, writing reports and recounts while also concentrating on grammar, punctuation and spelling (GPS).
In Maths, we will be recalling number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 while also securing the children’s knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction. In Science, we will be studying plants and in Geography we will be learning about landmarks and physical features of the United Kingdom. In Art we will be our own clay owls and using different techniques to create details. After half term we will study important historical events and in DT we will be designing and making our own 3D landmark.

Our PE sessions are: Wednesday and Friday.
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. As it may be cooler for outdoors PE, please send jogging bottoms for your child to wear. Should you wish, PE kit can be purchased from the school office. In the interests of safety, no jewellery, including earrings, should be worn on PE days.
Children in Year 2 receive regular 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. Maths and English homework is sent home on alternate weeks on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. An additional project will also be given out for children to complete across the half term.
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 it 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 me. Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.

Look at our fabulous Autumn collages!
In Science we have been using our measuring skills to investigate if the largest child has the largest feet. Our results showed that this is not true.
