Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds
We hope you have had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to the new school year.
At the start of the term we will be focusing on number and place value. The children will be recognising the value of a 2-digit number and will be able to compare and order numbers. By the end of the term we will be progressing to learning about the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and using different methods to solve problems.
At the start of the term we will be reading Peter Pan, focusing on sentence structures and writing to entertain. We will also be reading Velveteen Rabbit towards the end of the term.
We will be learning about Animals (including humans) and use of everyday materials.
Topic will be broken down into a number of subjects. Throughout Autumn, we will be learning about the history of Harlow. Also, for R.E. we will be looking at World Religious Festivals and the Bible Story of Luke’s Christmas. Finally, children will be learning computer skills and a unit of music using Charanga.
Children will be expected to have their P.E. kits in school during term time. Kit includes: black shorts, green tops and trainers/plimsolls. As the weather will be getting colder, children can bring in black tracksuit bottoms.
Ladybirds P.E. days are: Tuesday and Wednesday
Butterflies P.E. days are: Wednesday and Thursday.
Children will be set Maths homework online using Mathletics, every Monday. We are also encouraging children to read regularly with an adult to help improve their fluency. Reading Eggs will be an additional option for you to use.
Finally, please ensure children bring a water bottle and coats with them.
