Autumn Term 2020-2021
I'm looking forward to welcoming all the children back in September and settling into an exciting term of learning in Year 2. Please remember to check our page regularly for further information and any changes to our usual practice due to the current situation. We know that some children may feel uncertain about the return to school and we want to assure that we have made robust plans. Please read the letter which was sent out to you at the end of last term and which is saved here on our class page.
In English lessons we will start by looking at word classes and use phonics and grammar knowledge to read and spell. We will write character descriptions and re-tell stories that we know. We will move on to include information texts, letters and poems.
Please read with your child at home to build up stamina to read for longer periods of time. Reading to your child is a great way to introduce them to new types of text and hear new vocabulary. It is also important to talk about the book to check their understanding. Are there words they can read 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 will focus on comprehension questions, using the texts to find the answer.
In Maths we will begin by revisiting numbers up to 20 and understanding the value of numbers. We will look at addition and subtraction using numbers up to 100.
We will also be busy in science, art, music, ICT, history, geography and more plus we will continue to be active in PE lessons, and on our field track.
I hope you all have a lovely Summer and I look forward to returning to school in September. Please remember to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
