Year Two

Welcome to Year 2’s class page

We aim to provide the children with an exciting and engaging curriculum with each term focused around a theme.

 Below we will share information about our curriculum and class routines.

We will also share photographs of our work throughout the year for you to see!

Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term – Famous Florence

Spring Term – Super Safari

Summer Term – London’s Burning 

                   

Home Reading

Reading helps children with their knowledge, understanding and language. The children are taught to read in school however it is important that you encourage your child to read at home daily and listen to them read a couple of pages of their book every night.

Reading books will be changed every Wednesday and every Friday the children will choose a library book to read over the weekend.

  Parents  you must sign the yellow diaries so your children can be rewarded with a stamp for their efforts. 

      

Spellings

Each week children will receive 10 spellings from the Year 1&2 National Curriculum to practise in class and at home.

Please help your child to practise their spellings as they will be tested each Monday.

As one of their weekly homework tasks we would like the children to practise their spellings by writing their words in sentences in their homework books.

Please note that the children will have their half term spelling assessment the last week of each half term. They will be 20 of the spellings covered at random.

In class we use the spelling shed app which the children really enjoy playing.

This can be downloaded (£2.99) from the App Store if you have access to an iPad at home.

It’s really easy to use. Children can play on the Year 1&2 spellings or you can input our weekly spellings into the Your Lists at the bottom of the main page!

Meet Tibbi!                                        

Tibbi is our class cuddly who will go home each weekend with a different child. We would like the children to write about what they have done with Tibbi in Tibbi’s diary and attach photographs where possible.

Tibbi has arrived back from his summer holiday in Kefalonia and is ready to start a new  adventure…

……..I wonder who Tibbi will share his next adventure with?    

P.E

 Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E  kit in school and that it is brought into school at the beginning of each week.

Remember that this year the children must wear a T-shirt that is the same colour as their assigned house team.

What we will be learning in the Autumn Term
