Our final topic in Year 2 is Beachcombers.
We will be sharing lots of fiction and non-fiction books about the seaside.
Our Science topic is Animals, including Humans. We will learn about animal and human babies and how they grow. We will also take a look at different life cycles and think about what we need in order to grow and stay healthy.
In English we will be finding out about creatures that live on the sea shore. We will be writing descriptions and fact-files for information about animals we have researched. We will also be trying to get our tongues around some tongue twisters such as ‘She Sells Sea Shells on the Seashore’. We need to continue to carefully check our spelling and punctuation when we are writing. Handwriting - forming our letters neatly and correctly - is always a key focus.
Our R.E. topic is The Beginning of the Church. We will be learning how the Holy Spirit enabled the disciples to spread the Good News and the children will reflect on how they can also help to spread the Good News.
In Maths we are revisiting place value, multiplication and division.
We are also having another look at finding fractions of numbers. We need to know how to find a half, a third and a quarter. Can we then use our answers to find two thirds, two quarters or three quarters?
Spellings, reading books and homework will be sent home each week. Please support and encourage your child in completing and returning any tasks set, and let me know if there are any problems.
Year 2 SATs tests were completed during May. Parents will be advised of results along with the end of year reports.
Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
