Welcome back to Otters! We hope that you enjoy this half term with us.

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.
In English we are going to be using the stimulus of Paddington Bear to write exciting newspaper reports, postcards, letters and missing posters to help look for the lost bear! The children will be amazing us with their descriptions through using a variety of sentence types such as 2A sentences, BOYS sentences and simile sentences. I'm sure that the children will be amazing and bring their learning to life.
Watch the video below for inspiration on Paddington Bear!
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. We will be using many of the IPC personal learning goals such as resilience and co-operation to help us!
Word problems seem to be tricky for our children so please practise at home. Follow the resources below to support your child at home.
