Summer Term 2021-22
This half term our PE day with Premier Sport is Tuesday. The children need to come wearing their school PE kits. This includes the first day back at school on 19th April
Here is a short overview of what is coming up:
Over this term we will be completing the national statutory assessments. This is nothing for you or your child to worry about.
In English lessons we will start by revisiting word classes and will use phonics and grammar knowledge to read and spell. We will move on to write and re-tell stories that we know.
Please read with your child at home to build up stamina to read for longer periods of time and build reading fluency. Encourage them to use their phonics knowledge as they read to you. Reading with and to your child is a great way to introduce them to new types of text, build new knowledge and hear new vocabulary. It is also important to talk about the book to check their understanding. What words they can decode but perhaps don't understand the meaning of? It is helpful to read a variety of texts including non-fiction and poetry. In school, we read on a daily basis and in reading groups we will work on answering comprehension questions, using the texts to find the answer.
In Maths we will begin by revisiting and building on place value knowledge. We will use all four maths operations and revise fractions of shape and number. The children will explore data and interpret pictograms and bar charts. We will work on measurement, money, geometry and time. As well as building maths fluency we will use reasoning skills to solve problems and explain.
As scientists, the children will explore plants in the topic "Young Gardeners". We will experiement with growing conditions for plants and observe the lifecycle of plants and butterflies. In history we look at the life and work of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. In geography we will look at oceans and continents before comparing the United Kingdom to South Africa. We will also be busy with PE, RE, PCHE, computing, art and music too.
Please do contact me by email or at the of the school day if you have any questions.
Homework in Year 2:
Homework is an important chance to practise the curriculum learned at school. After your child has completed the work please work through it with them and support them.
Maths homework- This should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Maths homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday.
Literacy homework - This will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday. The suggested time is 20 minutes.
Reading - Children should read for 10 - 15 minutes at home every night if possible. Please ask the children to tell you about the story and ask some questions about the book. Reading/homework folders need to be in school every day. Thank you!
Spelling homework will be set on a Friday and tested in school the following Friday. Children should aim to spell these words correctly in their work as well as for the quiz.
A paper copy of the homework is sent home with the children and is also on the weekly news item.
