Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 class page!

Welcome to Year 2 with Mrs Rossen, Mrs Stewart and Miss Wilkinson.

We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead with lots of learning in and out of the classroom.

In English this term, we are learning about persuasive writing using the text  The Bear and the Piano.

In maths we are focussing on place value and reinforcing our addition skills to help us recall multiplication facts. We are also learning about subtraction and division.

We will be learning lots in other areas of the curriculum too. In geography this term we are learning about  the 4 countries of the United Kingdom. In history, we are learning about the life of George Stephenson. In science this term we are learning about materials and plants.

The children will come home on a Monday with their weekly spellings. Children need to be able to read and spell these words so please encourage the chidlren to practise these before our spelling challenge on a Friday.

Every Friday we will be sending homework books home. In the blue homework books you will find the creative and maths homework. The creative homework has 7 activities for you to choose from. These can be completed in any order over the half term and in any order. Please try to do at least 1 a week. Children will be awarded with house points for these activities once completed. The weekly maths homework will be a sheet which covers a range of maths skills. The homework books need to be handed in by a Tuesday every week and will be handed out on a Friday.

The children will come home with their reading books every night. We will be reading with each child individually at least once a week (as well as in a group). We would like the children to have their reading books and diaries in school every day. We have designated reading time every afternoon in class and we use this opportunity to read our home reading books independently as well.

The children have PE on a Thursday afternoon so they need to come into school wearing their school PE kit.

We are going to have a brillant term and we can’t wait for our adventures.

If you have any questions please ask and thank you for your continued support.
