Year 2

We are beginning the year with our first topic which is ‘Who lives in a house like this?’. All of the posters that were brought into school for this topic are fantastic! In Writing this year we will be focusing on learning new skills to use in our sentences, learning new texts and writing a range of different texts. As well as this, we will be writing creatively and engaging in comprehension activities to develop our understanding of books we are reading. In handwriting, we will be learning to join letters. In maths we are going to be focusing on a wide range of topics. Our first topic in Maths is place value. At home to link our Maths learning to the real world please encourage your children to read numbers they see when they are out and about, exploring their value and use. PE will be on Thursdays so please send your children into school with their PE kits on. Spelling tests will be every Friday and new spellings will come home each Friday too. Reading cards will be checked every Thursday and new books can be taken home when the children have finished their current book. Please encourage your children to read as often as possible! If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to email me at year2@westwoodacademy.org
