Welcome to Year 2

 

Your Year 2 team are Mr Keane and Mrs McKerchar.

Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays, and we have Terrific Tuesday sessions for creative outdoor learning every other Tuesday afternoon. Don't forget to wear appropriate clothing.

Homework will be uploaded to Google Classroom on a Friday. This is to be completed in Homework books and returned for marking by the following Wednesday. Reading books will be changed twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that children return their books and Reading Journals on these days.

Spring Term

This term our topic will be 'Houses and Homes'. We will be learning about types of houses and how the typical family home has changed since Victorian times. We will also learn about different types of settlements, such as villages and towns. In history, we will focus on the Great Fire of London.

In Science we will learn about 'Uses of Everyday Materials', including being able to identify different materials, their properties and why they are suited to particular uses and purposes.

In Maths, we are following the White Rose Maths Scheme of learning and will begin by completing our unit on Shape, before going on to Money, followed by Multiplication and Division.

In English, we will use texts linked to our 'Houses and Homes' topic such as 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' and 'Traction Man' to develop our reading and writing skills. We will also learn to write diary entries based around Samuel Pepys' famous diaries and non-chronological reports.

We will also continue with daily Monster Phonics sessions to help us to recognise all the phonemes and graphemes found in the English language. This will help ensure we become fluent readers and accurate spellers.
