Year 2 -  Spring Term

 

Dear Parents,

 

Welcome back to the new term. We hope you all had a nice Christmas holiday and a good New Year!

 

Year 2’s topic this term is called ‘Awesome Authors.’ It is a mainly English based topic but does have many links to other curriculum areas. The children will be looking at texts by a range of authors such as William Shakespeare and Roald Dahl.

 

Also in English, the children will continue to develop their comprehension skills, story writing skills and will be looking at how and why question marks are used. As always please continue to read with your child regularly and encourage them to complete journal work. All children should write with a pencil and should now be joining their handwriting.  Please aim for at least two pieces of journal work per half term!

 

In Maths, the children will continue to develop their understanding of the place value of numbers, comparing them and solving problems about them. They will continue to develop the column method for both addition and subtraction, practise the bonds to 10, 20 and 100 and also the times tables/division facts. Activities to supplement this learning have already been sent home. By making maths part of their own real life will also help e.g. letting your child pay for items in the shop, calculating change, telling the time when you’re out and about etc…

 

The children worked very hard last term and we’re sure that they will continue to do so again this term. Many thanks for your continuing support with their learning and please keep checking our Year 2 Class Blog for regular updates. You can easily reach this through the Year 2 page on the school website.

 

In Year 2 we are trying to develop the children’s independence. Please could we ask that where possible, if you have a message in the morning that you ask your child to pass us a note? As soon as the bell goes, the children are our main priority and learning needs to start as soon as possible, therefore we are unable to chat for long when we collect the children. Many thanks for your understanding and cooperation with this.

 

Yours sincerely,
