In Year 2 we are: Pine Class with Miss Allen, who is helped by Mrs Gratrick and Cedar Class with Mrs Furnell (KS1 Phase Leader) who is helped by Mrs Davey and Miss Macarty.
Our painting for this term is Great Fire of London by Lieve Verschuier.
Year 2 is an important year in KS1 because it is when we sit the end of Key Stage 1 tests (SATs).
In Maths this term, the children will be learning to multiply and divide accurately and how to identify and demonstrate fractions.
In English, they are learning to use a range of co-ordination and subordination to extend sentences and to carefully edit and improve their own writing.
We send spellings home each week. Some are linked to a spelling rule and some are based around our topic for the term. These are tested each week so make sure you practise!
Pine class PE: Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Cedar class PE: Mondays and Fridays.
Homework due in on Wednesdays.
Spellings tested on Wednesdays.
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.
•- 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 so they are ready for the test on Wednesday mornings.
•- Ensure that your child comes to school in correct uniform and with correct PE Kit.
If you have any questions please speak to Mrs Furnell or Miss Allen on the playground at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.
