Happy New Year! We are really looking forward to a very exciting new term. We have lots of fantastic things planned with a few surprises along the way. We are kicking the new year off with a bang (quite literally!) with a whole school project involving lots of art and poetry. We can't wait to share it with you in our whole school exhibition.


In our English lessons, we will read the story Dragon Machine by Helen Ward. This is a beautiful book with stunning illustrations. Keep you eyes peeled - you never know wher you might spot a dragon! 


In our maths lessons, we will be expanding on our place value knowledge from last term and begin to add and subtract 2 digit numbers. We will also be working hard on remembering our number bonds and our 2,5 and 10 times tables so that we can be super speedy answering questions! Times Table Rock Stars and Numbots are available to use at home and are a great way to support with this.


In science, we will be learning about animal habitats and food chains. Our history topic is Neil Armstrong and we will be comparing his achievements with those of Amelia Earhart who we studied last term. 


We will have two PE lessons a week. Outdoor PE will be on a Tuesday so please make sure children wear a clothes that are suitable for the weather! We will also have hall time on Wednesday. On both days children should come into school in their PE clothes and stay in them all day. Please try and make sure girls have hair tied back on these days.  


Reading is our main form of homework in Year 2 and we expect children to read at least four times a week. We have daily reading lessons and will continue with a weekly written comprehension. Children will be sent home with two reading books – a reading book matched to their phonic ability and a library book. Please continue to record the reading books using the Go Read App.


Times Tables Rock Stars is our maths homework and children have been issued with their log in details. It is quite fast-paced so try to support your children when you can. Please don’t give up!


This year we will continue to focus on positivity as a whole school.  Each week there will be an exciting new theme, a focus quote and a song!  Watch out for the school newsletter to find out more!
