Welcome to Year 2 and the autumn term.
Our main topic this term is focusing on the royal family. We will be looking at placing people and events in chronological order. We will also be looking at different periods of time and comparing aspects of life from different times. We will also be finding about the past from a range of given sources (stories, pictures, photographs, historic buildings, ICT). In art and DT we will be developing a range of skills by looking and creating self-portraits and designing an making crowns.
In literacy we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. We will be exploring fairy tale stories, reports and recounts and also vocabulary building in poetry. In numeracy we are using objectives from the national curriculum. We are also looking forward to lots of problem solving and times tables work.
In science we will discuss how animals have offspring that grow into adults and think about how children have changed since they were babies. We will look at various life cycles and find out what animals need to survive. We will also study balanced diets and how to exercise, which help keep humans fit and health.
Reading Books and Tricky Words
Please read regularly with your child and help them to learn their tricky words. Also comment in your child's diary each time you read with them. Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Pupils will also have the opportunity to bring a book home from the school library. Please make sure children have their books available to read everyday.
if your child is learning their tricky words these will be changed on a weekly basis.
Pupils will be set homework on a Tuesday and Friday. On Friday the homework will consist of spellings and a piece of work from an area of the curriculum. Also each child will be expected to complete their daily work program on DoodleMaths.
This term indoor P.E will take place on a Monday and outdoor P.E will take place on a Friday. The children will require a sky blue polo top with a school badge, plain royal blue shorts, royal blue track suit and trainers. P.E kits should be kept in school in case of any timetable changes and will be sent home fortnightly to be washed. For health and safety reasons earrings and watches should be removed for all PE lessons and long hair must be tied up.
