Hello and welcome to our new Year 2 classes!
In Year 2 we are: Pine Class with Miss Vermeulen, who is helped by Mrs Davey, and Cedar Class with Mrs Lagartixa (KS1 Phase Leader) who is helped by Mrs Gratrick.
Our painting for this term is Tiger in a Tropical Storm by Henri Rousseau, and our topic is ‘the Rainforest’ which will have us learning about rainforests all around the world, continents and oceans.
Year 2 is an important year in KS1 because it is when we sit the end of Key Stage 1 tests (SATs).
At this stage of the year, the children will be working on place value and addition and subtraction in Maths. We will also be extending our writing by using a variety of sentence openers and interesting adjectives.
In our phonics groups, we are focusing on spelling and grammar.
Here are some of the ways you can help your child at home:
•Read with your child every day and ensure their reading diary is signed. Please click here for some Parent Reading Prompts.
•Ensure homework is completed
• Practise the 2s, 3s, 5s and 10 times tables, with your child reciting “1 times 2 is 2”
•Practise weekly spellings
•Ensure that your child comes to school in correct uniform and with correct PE Kit.
If you have any questions please speak to Mrs Lagartixa or Miss Vermeulen on the playground at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
We are so excited for our first term with our new classes!
