Welcome to Year 2!

Year Two are taught by Mrs McCalmont, Miss Crutchley and Mrs Ashworth (AM Only).

Our topic this half term is Footprints from the Past, which is all about dinosaurs and fossils. We are all very excited about this topic and can't wait to learn where dinosaurs came from, what they did and why they are now extinct!

For a more in-depth look at our curriculum, come back each half term to find the latest updates and our Medium Term Plans.

English

Our English unit this half term also focuses on dinosaurs, we will be using the amazing texts Mungo & the Dinosaur Island by Timothy Knapman, There's a T-Rex in Town by Ruth Symons and Katie & the Dinosaurs by James Mayhew.   These fantastic books will help us to produce some brilliant creative writing.

 

Maths

This year we are using the fantastic Power Maths scheme in our maths lessons.  This half term we are learning about numbers to 100 and addition and subtraction.  The children also have log ins for Times Table Rockstars..  You can also log in at home so that they can practice their times tables at home too:https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student

Reading and Homework

Every Friday your child will bring home a reading book which is linked to the learning that week.  Please listen to your child read over the weekend and write a comment in their yellow reading diary.  Books need to be returned the following Monday.  

Please also check School Ping every Friday, the children will be sent two videos to watch as homework, which supports their Phonics and reading fluency.  Watching the videos will help your child to become mroe confident readers.

Weekly spellings will also be sent out via School Ping and will be tested weekly.

PE

PE is every Tuesday with our PE coach Mr. Downs. Children should come to school in their school PE kit.  They also have dance lessons every Friday, but do not need PE kits for this.
