Autumn Term 2021-22
This half term our PE day with Premier Sport is Friday. The children need to come wearing their school PE kits.
Welcome back for the new term and to Year 2. Please remember to check our page, emails and news items regularly for further information, including homework and any changes to our usual practice.
Our welcome "drop in" session will be held on Wednesday 8th September between 5pm and 6pm in the classroom. Please wear a mask and only one parent should attend (no children). I will happily answer any queries by email - thank you for your support.
Please read our Start of the Year pack and a welcome letter from last year's children, both of these are saved in the files section of this page.
Here is a short overview of what is coming up in this Half Term:
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 and look at stories from other cultures.
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 creating our Exhibition work and with science, art, music, ICT, history, geography and more plus we will continue to be active in PE lessons, and on our field track.
Homework in Year 2:
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. This homework will begin once the children have settled in to school.
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. This homework will begin once the children have settled into school.
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.
A paper copy of the homework is sent home with the children on Fridays and is also on the weekly news item.
