Year Two

Welcome to Year 2! We pride ourselves on being hardworking, original and confident learners.

Our key text this term is The Dragon Machine.

In English through Talk 4 Writing, we will be writing narratives about a new exciting machine, as well as instructions to go with them of course! Our lessons contain an effective combination of talking, writing, drama and often poetry. We practise spelling patterns every day which reinforce our writing in lessons. Your child will receive spellings every Monday, with a test on a Friday.

Maths lessons will see us continue to reinforce our knowledge of the four operations, as well as venturing into ‘Measurement’ and ‘Geometry’. We will continue to practise counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s, as well as learning the multiplication and division facts for these.

Through History and Geography will lead us to explore our local area and conduct fieldwork around school, while in Science we will study and investigate plants.

Our PE day is Tuesday afternoon. We will have PE sessions both in the hall and outside so please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing for both.

Homework will be given to your child on a Wednesday, to be retuned the following Monday.

Children should read a minimum of 3 times a week. Please write this in your child’s reading diary so that teachers can see clearly when children are reading. Diaries should be in school every day as they are check by the class teacher each morning. As well as using the planner for recording reading, you can also use it for communicating information and notes for the attention of the teacher.
