Here you will find information about the topics we have been learning in Year 2. We will share photos, website links, key information and celebrate all the exciting things we have been learning.
Your teacher is Miss Fairclough
Mrs Thomason and Mrs Aslam are here to help.
This half term, P.E is on a Tuesday afternoon.
Your child needs to keep their P.E kit in a clearly labelled P.E bag in school every day.
We will send it home at the end of each half term.
They will need:
White t-shirt, black shorts/pants/leggings and a pair of black P.E pumps.
We have a reading programme in school called 'Accelerated Reader'.
Your child will take a quiz on each book they read.
Children in Year 2 have the opportunity to quiz most mornings if they have read their book.
If you read every night...
5 books a week...
39 weeks in a school year...
That is 195 books a year you will read!
You read at least one book every week in Guided Reading...
That makes a total of at least 234 books!
READ, READ, READ!!!
We try our best to change books as often as possible, but some days it may not be possible due to unforeseen circumstances.
It is important that you read with your child every night.
Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned on a Monday morning.
Spellings will be handed out every Monday to be practiced throughout the week at home in preparation for a spelling test on Friday.
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.
In History, we will be learning about castles past and present and all the different features of a castle. We will even be visiting a real castle!!
In science this half term, we will be focusing on animals and their habitats, including micro-habitats and habitats within our local environment. On Thursday 9th November, we are going on a local nature walk - remember to bring a coat and sensible shoes.
In R.E, we are learning about Holy Books in different faiths and then about Christmas, when we ask ourselves "Why was the birth of Jesus such good news?"
Our core Christian Value this half term is "Trust".
