Spring Two

Our exciting topic this term is all about Chocolate! We will be using the book Mr Bunny's Chocolate Factory to help with our explanation writing about factories and machines. We will be conducting research to find out where chocolate comes from and how the bean came to be the bar. Our research will also include the Cadbury's Brothers as they are significant in the history of chocolate. In DT we will be using chocolate in a variety of ways. We will be reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in our class read and will base our stories towards the second half of the term on elements from the book. A very exciting half term.

Welcome to Year 2 

I am delighted to be teaching your children this year and look forward to watching them grow and flourish. 

If there is ever anything you wish to discuss with me please do not hesitate to pop in.

Important Information

Reading Book

Reading is a crucial area of the curriculum which feeds into so many other subjects, and is therefore so important that you read with your child daily at home. Reading helps your child to progress in every area of their learning. Reading has slightly changed this term with the introduction of Read Write Inc phonics. If you child is involved in Read Write Inc their reading book will be linked directly to their learning, and their book will usually come home on a Wednesday. Children not in Read Write Inc will continue as before. 


PE Kit

Please keep your child's PE kit in school at all times. Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday; however, it is essential that the PE kit stays in school and is in at all times. We also participate in dance on a Friday. 


Spellings and Times tables

Spelling patterns and spelling rules are taught throughout the week in class. The children are tested every Friday on their spellings and are given a new set of spellings for the following week. It is essential children practise these spellings at home too in order to retain their learning. 

By the end of Year 2, children are expected to know their 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables in any order, and the corresponding division facts. The children use Times Table Rockstars in school weekly and should also use this at home. Your child's log in can be found in their homework diary. We have mental math tests every Friday. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come in and ask. Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Whitehead and Miss Crutchley.
