In Spring Term the theme is ‘Where would you prefer to live?’

It is a Geography based topic. The children will be exploring the questions:

  • What are cities like?

In Maths we are focusing on; Money, Multiplication and Division and fractions 

In English we are exploring a range of texts based around environmental themes, beginning with "The Lumberjack's Beard" and "Greta the Great"

Art is focused on drawing- the children will explore line, texture and tone using a range of media, including pencils and charcoal. The children explore the life and work of Lowry and create a Lowry inspired piece of art.

In the Summer Term the theme is ‘Who explored the world and how did they survive?’

It is a Geography and History based topic. The children will be exploring the questions:

  • Why are the Polar/Desert/Equatorial regions like?
  • What is the longest journey you have been on?
  • What was the sea race? What was the space race?

 

Homework

In Year 2, the children are working towards becoming confident, fluent readers, who show a good understanding of the texts they read. Books will be changed on a Monday and 2 books will be sent home. We would like to encourage all parents to be reading daily with their child to ensure the progress they have made continues and that your child becomes fluent with the book they have. Once you have read with your child please sign and date to show this. We would ideally like this to be a daily occurrence but a minimum of 3 signatures per week is required. 

 Your child has access to Spelling Shed which should be accessed every day for 5-10 minutes throughout the week. A new set of spellings are added every Friday for your child to learn. Children will gain a dojo for each daily visit.   Mathletics will have assignments set every two weeks. These assignments will be repeated every two weeks with new tasks added. Children will receive a super dojo for completing these tasks. Rising stars is available for use at home should you wish to access any other books during the week. 

Every two weeks a  new homework task is set via Seesaw. This task supports your child's learning in school, therefore it is very important that this task is completed within the time set. 

Timetable

Our timetable for Year Two is as follows:

 

  • PE is delivered by our specialist coach on a Thursday afternoon. Outdoor kits with trainers will be needed for these sessions. PLEASE NAME ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING.
  • Indoor P.E shall be on a Friday afternoon- alternative weeks and children will need shorts and T-shirt for this activity.  P.E kits must be in at all times.

  • Guided reading sessions are taught 4 days a week working in small groups with the class teacher. Please send your childs reading record in daily as I shall record in here their session.
