Our topic this half term is 'footprints from the past!' We will find out about different types of dinosaurs, what they ate and when and where they lived before they became extinct! As well as being paleontologists and discovering our own fossils, we will begin to understanding how these are formed!

Key stage 1 assessments will commence in May 2019. The children will be assessed in small groups in a quiet room. The tests will consist of:

  • Maths: Arithmetic Test
  • Maths: Reasoning Paper
  • Reading: Paper 1
  • Reading: Paper 2
  • SPaG: Spelling, punctuation and grammar test (including a spelling test).

There will be a meeting with the year 2 staff, in the weeks prior to SATS commencing, where we will inform you of what the children can expect during the SATS period and answer any questions that you may have on this topic.

Important Information

Reading Book

Please make sure your child reads at home every night and signs their diary. Reading is a crucial area of the curriculum which feeds into so many other subjects. 


PE Kit

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


Spellings and Timestables

The children are tested as a class and with personalised spellings on a 1:1 with the TA once a week. Please practise the spelling lists which are sent home with the children every night.

By the end of Year 2, children are expected to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables in any order and the corresponding division facts. The children will be tested in lessons as well as weekly on a 1:1 with the TA.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come in and ask. Thank you Miss Pearson
