This half term in Autumn 2 our exciting topic is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets!
We will be reading the story of 'The Tunnel' and the children will be making predictions, writing descriptions and creating their own settings for their own version of the story.
We will also be learning about castles within History, labelling castles and learning about castles past and present. We will even be visiting a real castle!!
In science this half term we will be focusing on animals and their habitats, including microhabitats and habitats within our local environment.
This half term we will be the reading story 'The Tunnel' by Anthony Brown.
Have a listen at home ...
What a fabulous trip to Skipton Castle! All the children were so wonderfully well behaved and sun was shining when we arrived. Our tour guides knew so much about the Castle and we came away with lots of facts and information ready to write our recounts about the day.
WELL DONE YEAR 2!!
OUR GOLDEN CHILD
This week Miss Cooper had to choose 3 children for the Golden Award. Kian, Oliver and Numair were so wonderfully well behaved on the trip to Skipton Castle. Kian and Oliver soaked up so much information and learnt so much. Well done boys
In St Luke's we believe it is very important to be in school every day. This way you will not miss out on any learning as we build up to our Year 2 SATs. In 2C we have a super attendance board where every day that you are in your star will be moved along to the next number. All the children who have reached day number 5 on a Friday, meaning they have been in every single day, will be entered into a class raffle. 5 names will be chosen and prizes will be won.
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT
We are now following a new reading programme called 'Accelerated Reader'.
The children will be taking a quiz that will assess their reading book range and they will be bringing books home to read within this range.
Once your child has read a book at home they will be able to complete a quiz on an Ipad within the classroom that will have a number of questions relating to the book.
Enjoy the news books
Here are some dates to remember about Year 2 ...
READING BOOKS - changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday or when your child has quizzed. PLEASE ensure your child has read at home and that the orange reading record book has been signed If your child is finding the story easy, please ask them lots of comprehension questions to ensure they also understand the book they are reading. Questions can include:
PE - PE will take place at least once a week. PLEASE ensure your child has the full PE kit (WHITE T-SHIRT, BLACK SHORTS, BLACK PUMPS) in every week for the whole half term, we will send them home at the end of each half term to be washed.
HOMEWORK - Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned on a Monday morning.
SPELLINGS - Spellings will be handed out every Monday to be practised throughout the week at home in preparation for a spelling test on Friday.
There are lots of different websites that we use in school to support your child's learning. These websites can be accessed at home. Their username and passwords are stuck in the front cover of their homework books. Please try and access the websites with your child as much as you can. It would be very beneficial if your child completed the activities on their own or with the correct support.
Please see the links below to access the different websites that will be useful to your child.
