Dear Parents/Carers/Pupils

Welcome to Year 2’s page!

In Year 2 we strive to do our very best each and every day.

This half term, Year 2 will be focusing on a ‘Recovery Curriculum’ to fill the gaps which have developed over Lockdown. The main focus for our recovery curriculum is English and Maths through a fun and creative manner. We will also be concentrating on PSHCE and the children’s mental well-being.

In Year 2 Maths is really important we will focus on place value of numbers up to 100, as well as looking at our new addition and subtraction strategies for Year 2.

This half term in English, our work will link to our class author Anthony Browne and we will focus all lessons around his wide variety of stories. Our main effort will be writing simple sentences whilst learning our cursive handwriting.

Phonics is continued in Year 2 however, Spellings is introduced and taught through the RWinc Spelling scheme, year group expectation words can be found below.

Our P.E. lessons are on Thursday and Fridays afternoons. We would very much appreciate if you could ensure that full PE kits are in school on those days; it is advised that children bring their kits into school on the first day of each half term and they will be sent home at the end of the half term so that they can we washed. All earnings must be removed or covered with plasters at home.

The children are greatly encouraged to read at least five times each week at home. This can be their school reading book or any other text that they choose. Every time you listen to your children read and sign their home diary, they will receive stamp and if they receive 5 stamps they will receive a small prize. All the children who have read 5 times will also have their name placed into a raffle and a winner shall be chosen each week.

Homework will be sent home weekly and this will be based around the key mathematical facts/timetables and spellings. This will be sent home on a Monday and tested the following Monday.

Our class book is Fing by Tom Fletcher. This book was chosen by the children themselves. We also have a class author, Anthony Browne. Year 2’s reading motto is ‘The more you read, the more things they will know.’

Children should bring a named water bottle into school each day and fruit is available.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see me after school or contact me via our Class Dojo. Please register to see the regular updates and messages.

Thank you for your support.
