Our topic this half term is Land Ahoy!
The lives of famous people, such as Grace Darling, Captain Cook and some famous pirates, will be studied. The children will write stories, fact files and poetry over the next few weeks. Grammar, spelling and punctuation, along with daily phonics lessons, will continue to feature largely in our English lessons. We will learn how to read and make maps – hopefully this will involve a chance to dress up and follow a special kind of map! English will continue to focus on care with handwriting, spelling and punctuation. Remember - Capital letters and full stops.
Our Maths lessons will be focusing on different ways of presenting data, such as pictograms, tally charts and bar charts. We will be learning how to read and interpret them so we can accurately answer questions about the information. We will also be looking again at 2D and 3D shapes, thinking specifically about the properties of shapes: How many sides, vertices, edges etc.? The children in Year 2 need to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times tables so please encourage them to practice. Counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s is also very helpful to your child in Year 2. Details can be found on the link below.
The Good News is our R.E. topic this half term. We will be learning more about some of the wonderful miracles Jesus performed and thinking about what it means to be a good person.
Homework will be sent home each week. Please encourage your child to complete and return their homework, and let me know if there are any difficulties. Counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s is also very helpful to your child in Year 2. Details can be found on the link below.
P.E. will take place on Tuesday 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 dance and gymnastics. 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.
