Welcome to Year 2!

We are very excited to welcome all the children back for the Autumn term!

The teachers in Year 2 are Miss Johnson (2J) and Miss Patterson (2P). The teaching assistants are Miss Butterworth (2J) and Miss Schofield (2P).

 

What we are learning this half term

In Autumn 1, we will be learning lots of new and exciting things! In Maths we are looking at place value and in English we are going to be learning the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

In science, we will be learning all about plants and in history we are looking transport and how the first flight changed the world. Please have a look at our knowledge organisers for science and history. You can use them to learn lots of fun facts about your new topics.

P.E. 

Children in will take part in weekly P.E lessons.

P.E. in Year 2 will take place on Tuesdays. Children must come to school in PE kit (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers). Please make sure children have the correct PE kit.

Commando Joe will take place Thursday afternoon, children should come to school in trainers and school uniform.

 

Homework and spellings

In Year 2, we will set Maths and English homework every Friday on Mathletics and Purple Mash. This must be completed by Tuesday for Teachers to check. Spellings are handed out on Monday/Tuesday and our spelling test is on Friday. Please make sure your child is practising their spellings throughout the week for Friday’s test.

 

Reading

Children will be given a reading book to read at home. This will be given out on a Monday and needs to be brought back on Friday. Children can also use Junior Librarian online to support them with home reading. We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult. Children will be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Please sign the reading record when you have read at home with your child or if they have read independently.

Phonics

Year 2 children will still be having daily phonics lessons. Please see the phonics page on the website for games and websites to support children at home.

 

Times tables

By the end of Year 2, children need to know all times table facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We will practise regularly in school, but it is crucial that children are practising their times tables at home daily for rapid recall. To support them with this, please make sure your child is regularly practising on Times Table Rock stars. 

Please contact us if you have any questions,
