Welcome to Year 2

We are looking forward to some really exciting topics this year and are starting off with........

MAGIC!

From giants to dragons, we will explore the world of magical stories through our English and topic work.

 

Our text for this half term will be 'The Dragon Machine' written by Helen Ward.  As part of the unit we will be writing finding tale, a non-chronological report and also a Christmas Haiku poem.

 

NUMERACY

We are now working on multiplication and division, then moving on to fractions.  Please practise the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times table to help support the work being taught in class.

Don't forget to check Mathletics for your Maths homework too!

 

READING

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 and MATHLETICS

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.  Don't forget to check Mathletics weekly too for your homework.

PE

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.
