School Uniform Reminder
It is expected that on days where your child is not wearing their PE kit that they wear correct school uniform.
We welcome you to the Year 2 Information Page!
Throughout the Autumn Term we will be looking at a new context called 'Who Cares?'
Within this context we will learn all about animals including humans as well as being aware of our own bodies and their capabilities. We will also focus on the importance of friendship and learn what substances can be harmful. We will explore the lives of significant individuals from the past such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. As part of D/T we will being making a fruit based snack and will plan how to share these within the local community. Within Art we will develop the skills needed to make sculptures and in R.E we will explore special occasions for different religions.
We have a lot of exciting learning to look forward to and can't wait to begin this learning journey together in September.
Year 2 PE days are a Wednesday and Friday.
Please send your child in, in their PE kit.
A friendly reminder of what your child's PE kit should look like:
Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be in the children's homework books each week.
SPELLINGS: Your children will be given individualised Phonics group spellings. These will be stuck onto the homework sheet every week. If you require an additional copy of these, please speak to your class teacher.
The children must also participate in 30 minutes of online tasks via Reading Eggs or RM EasiMaths.
We've got some exciting new apps coming which we will explain more when we see you at the parent curriculum meeting on Thursday 16th at 9am in the main hall.
Please click on the links to reach both of these sites.
Additional learning at home
You can always carry on your learning, even when at home! Make sure you read for 10 minutes each day and then record it in your yellow reading record books to show your teachers!
Maths is also all around you! Can you count the steps in your house? Add together door numbers? Measure and weigh food/items when cooking?
Always practise your 2,5, and 10 times tables too!
