Year 2 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 2
We are looking forward to some really exciting topics this year and are starting off with........
From giants to dragons, we will explore the world of magical stories through our English and topic work.
Our text for this term will be 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. As part of the unit we will write a portal story, write instructions 'How to trap a Giant' and also write a list poem 'Ten Things Found in a Giant's Pocket'.
The focus will be on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction this term. To support your child, practise counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s forwards and backwards along with instant recall of doubles and the number bonds to 10 and 20 which are vital to support work in Year Two.

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!
HOMEWORK - SPELLODROME
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. We will be going swimming later on in the year.
