 Welcome to Year 2

 

Our topic this half term is Beachcombers. We will be learning lots about the seaside and the animals that live there!

We will be very busy this half term with the End of Key Stage One tests but we will make sure we have time for lots of fun activities as well.

Grammar, spelling and punctuation, along with daily phonics lessons, will continue to feature largely in our English lessons.  English will continue to focus on care with handwriting, spelling and punctuation. Remember - Capital letters and full stops. We will also be trying to use a range of suffixes in our writing and a range of punctuation - such as question and exclamation marks.

Our Science topic is Animals, including humans. We will study the life cycles and food chains of ourselves and other living creatures.

In Maths we will be doing lots of revision! We will be working hard on the 4 calculation methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be revising our knowledge of fractions and money, as well as learning how to tell the time to o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. I wonder if you can read the time to the nearest 5 minutes? Have a go!

Eastertide is our R.E. topic this half term. We will be learning that Jesus rose from the dead and that he still lives with us, through the Holy Spirit.

Homework will  continue to be sent home each week. Please encourage your child to complete and return their homework, and let me know if there are any difficulties.  

P.E. will take place on Monday and Wednesday each week. Please make sure your child has indoor P.E. kit in school, including a pair of indoor pumps. This half term the children are developing their skills in hockey and tennis. Please ensure all items of clothing and footwear are named.

Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Mrs Cox
