Summer Term in Year 2!

We’re so pleased to welcome you all back to the summer term in year 2.

As before, our day starts at 9:00 but you can arrive at school anytime from 8:40 and our day finishes at 3:05.

Our new Cornerstones project is ‘Scented Garden’ which focuses on developing our scientific knowledge and skills. We will be focusing on learning about plants; parts of plants, how plants grow, different types and their uses.

Reading is still an important part of our day and we will continue to have daily guided reading and individual reading sessions. Our class novel is ‘Hodgeheg’ by Dick King-Smith. Please continue to read at home as much as possible and talk about and enjoy books with others. Please bring your reading books and reading diaries to school daily.

As writers, we will be learning and innovating a journey story – ‘Monkey See – Monkey Do.’ We will continue to learn about the features and structure of a journey story and will continue to reinforce our ‘every time’ toolkit for writing, these are the things we need to remember to do every time we write. (To use punctuation, finger spaces, neat handwriting and to spell common words correctly.)

As mathematicians, we will learn about fractions of shape and number.  Using fractions at home in practical contexts will really support and reinforce the learning in class.

Our PE will now be on a Wednesday and will take place outside so please make sure you have a full outdoor PE kit in school ready and please make sure water bottles are in school everyday too.

Please check the Home Learning section of our website every Friday so you can practise your spellings and mental maths ready for the test the following Friday. Don’t forget to also have a look at the class blog, where photos and learning are uploaded each week.  You can continue to access TT Rockstars to practise times tables at home.

Please contact us at smurray@southill.dorset.sch.uk or  j.clark@southill.dorset.sch.uk if you have any questions, messages or anything to celebrate. It’s great to hear from you.

We’re really looking forward to the better weather and enjoying outside learning opportunties.

Mrs Murray and Mrs Clark
