Welcome back for the summer term. Miss Avery, Mrs Vincent, Mrs Westbury and Miss Smith are looking forward to all the exciting things we have planned. This half term our topic is 'Feet, Paws and Claws' and the children will be finding out about the different animal groups.
During the first part of the term the children will be continuing with English and Maths as well as taking part in Science, PE, Computing, RE, Metacognition and Learning for Life lessons.
The children will have PE lessons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays so please make sure PE kits are in school on those days.
If you have any questions or would like to speak to the class teachers or Miss Sutcliffe, please contact the office to make an appointment. The class email addresses used during lockdown are no longer being used.
Please have a look at our welcome meeting information to find out more about Year 2.
This term the children will be expected to complete their maths homework on Google Classroom. The children have been taught how to access it and the work supports the learning in maths lessons. This needs to be completed and 'turned in' on a daily basis. Please see the information below for tips to use Google Classroom.
The children will continue to get paper copies of their spellings. Please remember to read with your child everyday and sign their journal. The children will be able to take home 2 books to read.
This half term our topic is 'Who lives in this house?' We will be reading a range of stories with houses and homes as a theme and we will use these to help us when we are writing.
We will focus on saying the sentence out loud and writing it using our Fred fingers. We are especially working on including every sound within each word and writing our letters correctly on the line.
We have moved onto a new unit, ‘Division’. Children will develop their understanding of division. Children are introduced to the concept of equal groups, represented in various concrete, pictorial and abstract ways, including the number line. Children will share a given number of objects equally across a given number of groups to find out how many are in each group.
In Science this term, the children will learn about the different animal groups, including; birds, fish, reptiles, mammals and amphibians. They will learn the main facts about each animal group and will understand how they differ from each other.
This half term the children will be learning about important people in Christianity and Judaism. They will find out about why those people are important to the religion and what religious stories we know about them. Please look at the knowledge organiser for more information.
Here are some of the lovely work that children created over their Easter holidays. Year 1 have been learning about the different habitats where different animals live. What a fantastic effort! Well done to all the children who took part in their holiday challenge.
