We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Summer break and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term.
The autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 2. In English, we will start by writing about narratives inspired by our inspiration day on Friday 8th September (children can dress as news reporters) while also concentrating on grammar, punctuation, handwriting and spelling. Children will have the opportunity to practise these skills across a range of different texts including information texts, stories and poems. In Maths, we will begin the term focusing on place value and securing your child’s knowledge of this. Continuing on from Year 1, we will have an arithmetic lesson each week and will also give children the opportunity to tackle their times table superhero every Friday.
This term we will be launching a new topic called ‘Inter-Nation Media Station’ where children will learn about the history of sharing news, create a jingle and develop their communication skills. This will begin on Friday with our Inspiration Day.
Year 2 PE sessions are:
Class 7 – Wednesday and Friday
Class 8 – Wednesday and Friday
Class 9 – Thursday and Friday
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. Should you wish, PE kit and water bottles can be purchased from the school office. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE lessons.
Children in Year 2 receive regular homework. Spellings are given out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. We expect children to complete their reading comprehension homework after reading their books and the questions are usually found inside the front cover of their reading book. If possible, children should complete at least one comprehension per week. Additional creative homework (purple book) is also sent out 2-3 times per half term. If time to complete homework is sometimes limited, please concentrate on listening to your child read, if only for a few minutes each day. Thank you for your support at home.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
