Summer Term in Year 2!

We’re so pleased to welcome you all back to the second half of 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 ‘Wriggle and Crawl’ which focuses on developing our knowledge of living things and their habitats. We will identify, observe and investigate minibeasts and understand life cycles.

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 ‘Flat Stanley’ by Jeff Brown. 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 recount – ‘Bye Bye Big Bad Wolf.’ We will continue to learn about the features and structure of a recount 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 time, volume, mass and temperature.  All of these topics have many real life contexts that can be practised at home and 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.

Now that the warmer weather seems to have finally arrived, please apply sun screen before school and bring a (named) sun hat.

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 enjoying many more outside learning opportunities now that the warmer weather has finally arrived!

Mrs Murray and Mrs Clark
