Year 2 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 2
Summer term...it's out of this world!
To Infinity And Beyond!
Through our English and History work, we will cover how day and night occurs along with learning about the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon.
Our new text will be Mini Grey's 'The Last Wolf'.
Once upon a time, Little Red set off into the woods to catch a wolf . . .
But the woods aren't all they seem - and are there even any wolves left? Mini Grey re-imagines the classic Little Red Riding Hood fable in an entirely new way. Can Little Red help her new friends in need and recover the wild days of the past?
We are covering money, addition and subtraction along with statistics. Please encourage your child to count coins to find totals, to work out change and to make amounts in different ways. (How many ways can you make 50p?)
Daily reading at Year Two is strongly encouraged to help children reach the required level of speed and fluency. Reading Records are checked daily and raffle tickets are given to those children who have read. Each week there is a prize for the lucky winner!
Spelling is a huge part of the Year Two curriculum and regular practise is the key to success. We recommend 5 or 10 minutes 5 times a week whenever possible to support the teaching in class.
Children should have a full PE kit in school at all times. This should consist of shorts and a T-shirt for indoor PE and trainers and a tracksuit for outdoor PE.
