Class Curriculum

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back Year Two! We hope you’ve all had a well deserved rest over half term and are looking forward to our new topic and learning as much as we are.

Our day now starts at 9:00 but you can arrive at school anytime from 8:40. Our day now finishes at 3:05.

Our new Cornerstones project is called ‘Beat Band Boogie!’ We will be marching in time to the beat, listening to and moving to a range of music as well as experiementing with sounds. It’s going to be noisy but lots of fun!

Reading is still an important part of our day and we will continue to have daily phonics sessions to help secure our knowledge of letter sounds as well as enjoying stories and books together. 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 an instruction text – ‘How to Grow a Giant Beanstalk’ and we will move on to writing a warning story later this term.

As mathematicians, our focus will be on subtraction and multiplication as well as using these skills to solve problems and give explanations.

All PE will be taught outside on a Monday so please ensure 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 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.

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

We look forward to another exciting term in Year Two.
