Year 2

<back to classes

Welcome to Year 2 (Autumn Term)

Welcome back to school, we hope you have had a fantastic summer! Now the children have returned to school a little bigger and a little older they are beginning their journey through Year 2 with lots of fantastic learning opportunities to look forward to.

This half term in Maths our focus will be mainly on number and place value. We will be working hard to make sure all the children are secure with their numbers to 100, place value and number bonds to 10 and 20. The children will be involved in lots of practical activities followed up by recording of their work to fully embed their knowledge of number and place value. This will enable the children to develop their skills in number, multiplication, division, fractions and problem solving in preparation for next half term.

In English this half term we will be working on making sure all children are secure with their sentence structure and basic punctuation. We will have a weekly SPAG lesson (spelling, grammar and punctuation) and weekly spelling and handwriting lesson to help develop the children’s writing. The children will be taking part in ‘Talk for Writing’ to help develop their imaginative and creative writing skills.
Our Learning Challenge for this half term is “Let’s go on Safari!” Through this topic we will look at Africa and Kenya and locate continents and countries on a map. We will also be exploring animals, landscapes and the culture of Kenya and comparing them to the UK.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday. We will be keeping a log of children who return their homework and reading books regularly. Home reading books will be changed as and when the children have read provided the home diary has been signed.
PE will be on a Wednesday for class 6 and Monday for class 5 so please make sure your child has a full and appropriate PE kit.

If for any reason you need to talk to any of the year 2 team we will be happy to speak to you after school or alternatively make an appointment with the office and we will try our best to answer any question.

We look forward to a fun year of learning with your children and thank you in advance for your support.

King regards
Year 2 team
