Year 2

We are beginning the term with a ‘Winter Wonderland’. Challenge homework was to create a Winter Wonderland, lots have come in already and are up on display for everyone to admire. If you haven’t completed one you still have time. Our next topic is ‘Castles’, challenge homework will be sent home at the end of the half term in preparations for when the topic starts. Each morning we have spelling lessons. We are learning many spelling rules this half term which will be shown in the spellings the children bring home. Spelling tests are still on Friday and new spellings will still come home in spelling books on Friday too. We will continue handwriting practise focusing on joining. Further practise at home will be fantastic. In writing we are beginning our first text which is a non-chronological report called ‘Polar Bears’. We will then move onto story writing and letter writing. As well as this, we will focus on developing comprehension skills with weekly comprehension lessons. In maths we are going to be focusing on multiplication, division, fractions and geometry all while recapping the skills we have already learned. PE will be on Tuesday this term so please ensure earrings are taken out before school if the children can’t take them out themselves. Lastly, ensure you are accessing TT Rockstars and reading a part of your book each day.
