Welcome to Year 2!
In Year 2 we have so many great opportunities to learn new things. We continue to progress in our phonics, we continue to become confident readers and we carry on becoming strong mathematicians. Every day we have a Maths and English lesson. In the afternoons have either an RE, Science, Art, or Topic lesson – where we learn about the world and people who came before us. We have a PE lesson twice a week. We also have one Music and RHE lesson a week. All of these lessons shapes us into great learners and enables us to achieve anything we want to achieve.
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 will be set on a Friday on Google Classroom and this will be due on a Thursday every week. Maths homework will be set via My Maths. It is important that the children complete their homework every week as it is vital for their progression and to consolidate their learning.
What are Year 2 learning this week?
This week in English we have been looking at non-chronological texts. We have been learning about the features of them and we are working towards creating our own non-chronological report on animals.
The last couple of weeks in Maths we have been focusing on our times tables. We have been making and drawing arrays for our 2 times tables, 3 times tables and 4 times tables.
The last couple of weeks in Science we have been learning about our new topic ‘Living Things and their Habitats’. We are beginning to understand that plants and animals have lots of different habitats.
In our RE lessons we have been learning about how God is present in the world around us. We have been learning that God is in all things He created, and he is there even when we cannot see him.
In our Topic lessons this half term we have moved onto Geography and are learning about the world around us. We have spent some time looking at the Globe and Maps, and we are currently learning about the 7 Continents.
