Year 2 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Year 2
we're going back to 1666
Through our English and History work, we will learn about the Great Fire of London with the pupils ultimately writing a non-chronological report on the fire.
Our text will be The Great Fire of London by Emma Adams and James Weston Lewis.
In 1666, London's citizens woke to see the skyline above their city's cramped wooden houses ablaze. The Great FIre of London is a hauntingly beautiful visual re-telling of one of the most well-known disasters in the city's history.
We are working on rapid recall of the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables. It would be a big help to practise at home.
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.
