Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome back to the new half term. 

Year 2’s topic this half term will be ‘Fire.’ The topic will cover fire safety, the history of bonfire night, Guy Fawkes and the events surrounding the Great Fire of London. The topic is therefore very history based, but does have many links with other curriculum areas. 

In English, we will be continuing with the success of the Read, Write Inc. Phonics programme and writing firework poetry, writing character profiles and reports. Please continue to support your child with weekly spellings and reading. We have loved the interesting journal work some of the children have been doing at home – please keep it coming! In Maths, we will be learning about multiplication, division, money and measures. Please continue to practise the mental recall of the bonds and x tables using the apps, websites and games shared at welcome evening. In Science, the children will be learning about grouping and changing materials and will continue to work on Coding during Computing lessons. 

Year 2 will also be very busy this half term as they will be practising for the Christmas performance. All children in Year 2 will have a part of some sort to play in this production and a script with your child’s part highlighted will be sent home soon! The children are already very excited about this and we would really appreciate it if you could support your child with learning their lines. Information about tickets will be sent on a separate letter. 

If your child is bringing money into school for things like poppies, magic money etc… please could we ask that this is sent into school in an envelope with their name on, as otherwise it could be easily lost? The children are starting to develop their independence by handing letters and slips in by themselves, which is great and helps to prepare them for Key Stage Two. Please could we also ask that all belongings (coats, hats, gloves, jumpers, pumps, shoes etc…) have your child’s name in them, as many names have now faded and items are starting to get misplaced? 

Thank you for all your support with your child’s learning last half term. The children have been working very hard, have enjoyed the learning and have all settled in very well. We look forward to another successful half term. 

Please also keep checking the Year 2 Blog for regular updates and pictures. We also post activities that will help your child with their learning on there. You can access it via the school website, on the Year 2 page. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs K.Mair & Mrs A. Turner
