Welcome to Year 2!
We are very pleased to welcome all the children back to school and can’t wait to get to know them all.
This half term we will focus on settling back into the school environment, re-establishing routines and assessing where any gaps in the learning are.
To begin with, our focus will be on developing a happy and safe learning environment so we will spend time talking about our feelings, rewards and consequences as well as creating our Class Charter together.
Reading continues to be an important part of the day and we will have daily phonics sessions to help the children secure their knowledge of letter sounds as well as enjoying stories and books together. Please continue to read with your children as much as possible at home and talk about and enjoy books together. Please send reading books and reading diaries in daily.
As writers, we will be learning and innovating the journey story ‘Billy the Brave Knight’ and we will move on to instructional writing later in the term.
As mathematicians, our focus will be on counting, the value of two digit numbers, addition and subtraction as well as using these skills to solve problems and give explanations.
Our topic this term is ‘Towers, tunnels and turrets’ in which the children will be learning about materials and structures, the history of castles, bridges and tunnels as well as testing structures and recording data. We have lots of fun and exciting learning planned.
All PE will be taught outside so please ensure your child has a full outdoor PE kit in school every day.
Due to the current circumstances, interactions with staff will be limited. If you have any questions, queries or photos that you would like to share please email us on:
We look forward to an exciting term in Year 2.
Mrs Murray and Mrs Clark
