Spring 2020 2nd Half
Welcome to the second half of Spring Term in Year 2. We are really looking forward to our new cornerstones topic ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’. Get ready to explore towers, tunnels and turrets around the world, looking at their history, how they are built and designing and making some examples of our own.
We will be enjoying ‘The Hodgeheg’ by Dick King-Smith as our class story. Our writing focus will start with an information text about dwellings moving on to writing instructions later in the term.
Our maths focus will be fractions and we will be continuing to learn our multiplication facts as mental maths home learning.
P.E. kits need to be in school every day. Please ensure you have suitable PE shoes and warm PE kit as we are looking forward to being outside for as many sessions as the weather allows.
We look forward to finding out about the reading you do at home so please remember to bring your reading diaries and reading books to school every day.
As we are now well into the second term of Year 2, we will continue to encourage you to become more independent in preparation for Key Stage Two, so please keep coming into school by yourself and organising your things for the day.
We look forward to an exciting term full of new discoveries!
