Key Reminders:

In Year Two we are working extremely hard in preparation for our KS1 assessments. To help your child achieve their best please would you listen to them read, help them with their homework and make sure they practise their spelling for a short while everyday.

 

  • Spellings are also given out on Friday and the following Friday the children will be tested.
  • PE is every Wednesday afternoon. Children must come to school wearing their uniform and change into their P.E kits before dinner. All clothing (including shoes) should be labelled with your child's name. 
  • Toast is £1 per week, please bring this on a Monday in an envelope. 
  • Juice is 20p. Please give this to your child everyday if they would like some. It is their responsibility to look after it.

Jamil's Clever Cat

Why don't you share the story we are using in English with your family?
Which other stories from around the world can you recommend?

This Half Term:

English:

In English we are going to be using the stimulus of Jamil's clever cat to write exciting narratives, postcards, letters and missing posters to help gain deeper understanding of different cultures around the world. The children will be amazing us with their 2A sentences and use of similes to bring their learning to life. 

 

 

Mathematics:

In Maths we are going to be continuing to practise our arithmetic skills and further develop our problem solving and reasoning skills in preparation of the SATs in May. Word problems seem to be tricky for our children so please practise at home. 

We will also be focusing on Measurement; starting with 2d and 3d shapes, leading on to fractions, time and money. Phew!

 

IPC:

Our International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic this half term is Our World.

We will be linking this to our stimulus text in English and are all looking forward to finding out about all the magical places our children would like to visit or may have visited already!

In Science, we’ll be finding out:

  •  The differences between living and non living things
