Welcome to Year 2!

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

Our topic this half term is Africa, with a focus on the country of Kenya.  We will be learning about Kenyan culture, researching the Maasai Tribe and investigating the geographical features of Africa.

For a more in-depth look at our curriculum, take a look at this half term's Medium Term Plan below:

English

Our English unit this half term also focuses on stories about Africa -  Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway & Jude Daly and Bring the Rain to the Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema. We will be using the stories to write recounts and research African animals to inform our non-chronological reports.

Maths

This year we are using the fantastic Power Maths scheme in our maths lessons.  This half term we are learning about money, multiplication and division.  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 more 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.
