Welcome to Year 2!
Hello and welcome to Year 2!
We have a fun and busy year ahead of us where we will continue to build upon everything we have learnt so far. In addition, we will have many opportunities that will help us to grow and become more confident. We will enjoy learning new topics and learning the Year 2 Curriculum in preparation for the KS1 Assessments in May.
The following information and resources are to support you and to keep you updated on our learning journey in Year 2.
Year Group Team
Year 2 have their PE lessons on a Monday and a Friday. On PE days it is expected that children come to school in their PE kit. This is a plain white t-shirt, plain blue tracksuit bottoms or shorts and plain black/white trainers or plimsolls. Children should also ensure that they do not wear earrings on PE days for health and safety reasons.
Homework is set on Google Classroom every Thursday. Maths homework is generally set on the My Maths website. Practice of the 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x tables can be done on the Times Table Rock Stars website.
Each week children will be provided with a reading and library book to support their reading at home. It is recommended that children read for at least ten minutes/day.
All homework should be completed and returned by Tuesday. Homework set on Google Classroom should be handwritten and completed in the homework books provided.
What are Year 2 learning this week?
We are reading the story, ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes. We have been improving our vocabulary and generating adjectives about the little girl. We are also remembering to check that we’ve used the correct punctuation.
We have been counting and representing numbers using Base Ten.
We started our new science topic about materials with a hunt around the school. We identified lots of materials and discussed their uses and properties.
Father Noel, from our parish church, shared prayers and answered some very big questions that the children had about Creation.
We have started learning about the Great Fire of London. We have been discussing how London has changed since 1666 to present day London.
In computing, we have been looking at Information Technology at home and in school.
