If you have a child in Year Two, we will be uploading snap shots of our learning onto Seesaw. So keep checking in when you can ?
We love to learn and read in Year 2, I am passionate about books and love our daily read aloud sessions which we share together after lunch as a class. Year Two will be exploring a beautiful collection of fiction texts and poetry this half term. The children will have the opportunity to choose which book we will be reading next.
Year 2 Autumn 1 Read Alouds...
"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate loot on Treasure Island." Walt Disney
Reading for pleasure is very important in Year Two, there is nothing better than becoming lost in a wonderful book. All the children are encouraged to read across the curriculum and at every opportunity. We have whole class shared reading every Monday morning and guided reading Tuesday - Fridays. Please make sure reading records are brought into school every day.
PE. Year Two have PE on Monday and Wednesday. Children should come ready dressed in their PE kit on these days.
Water: Children are encouraged to bring in a bottle of water each day which they can access at any time. Please ensure bottles are named.
Snack: Children are encouraged to bring in a healthy snack for our morning playtimes or children may choose to order a snack from the kitchen. If you would like to send in your own snack then please make sure it is healthy. No chocolate, crisps or sweets please. We are a nut free school. KS1 children are provided with a piece of fruit at afternoon playtime.
Autumn Term Timetable
(the above timetable is an example and can be subject to change)
For more detail about the all the subjects and themes we will be covering throughout the year, please see the attached Year 2 Curriculum Overview for parents in the downloadable files below.
In English, we will be reading and writing about a wonderful book called Look up by Nathan Bryon. We will learn about an inspirational character and build up our writing to complete a final diary entry about a space flight. Alongside English, our daily morning reading lessons will focus on 'The Troll' by Julia Donaldson. This is comical alternative fiction story to The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children love discovering where the troll ends up next.
In Autumn 2 we will read and write information texts using The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson and Above and Below by Patricia Hegarty.
Please take a look at our Autumn Term Curriculum Overview for additional information.
Homework is set every Thursday and is due in the following Tuesday. Please see the guidance attached in the files below and you can also find this on the inside cover of your homework book.
Our homework will concentrate on reading, spellings and maths activities or games. Remember to log on to TT Rock Stars too.
I am really looking forward to welcoming the children back to school after the Summer so we can Grow and Achieve together!
