Kestrels enjoyed a mini competition in their archery lesson. Year groups 3-6 will all have the opportunity to learn this term as this is brilliant way to allow children that may not excel in the usual team sports, to shine. Fantastic shooting Kestrels! https://t.co/o8kBg7mF4B

Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds

Autumn Term 2020

 

We hope you have all had a lovely summer and are looking forward to your child returning to school. During Autumn 1, we will be focusing on the following areas:

Writing

Year 2 will be following the Read, Write, Inc. programme. This programme will help teach children their Phonics and apply these sounds to spellings. Alongside this, we will be reading the story The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl.

Maths

The focus for maths to begin with will be Place Value. This will involve reading and writing numbers up to 100 in numerals and word,  comparing numbers using <, > and = signs and counting in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10 forwards and backwards. We will then move onto addition and subtraction. This will involve children being able to recall number facts to 20 and solve problems involving up to 2-digit numbers mentally and using written methods.

Science

The topic will be Use of Everyday Materials. Children will recognise materials that are used and discuss the suitability of everyday materials. We will also investigate how the shape of the materials may change.

Topic

Year 2 will be focusing on the following topics:

  • Geography – The Americas – Children will locate North and South America are in the world and identify some of the countries found there. They will also compare life in some of these countries and the climate.
  • R.E. – Festivals – We will look at religious festivals from around the world, identifying how and why they are celebrated.
  • Computing – We will be practising our computing skills, this will involve mouse control and typing skills.

PE

PE will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child comes to school on those days wearing their PE kits.

Art

This half term, the children will be taking their Art lessons outside into the Nature Area. Art will take place on Fridays, please ensure children have warm clothing when needed.

Homework and Reading

Homework will be set on Monday via Mathletics weekly. Children can use Reading Eggs and Reading Eggspress at their leisure, we will not be setting homework on these.  If you are using this, we will recommend your child to start using Reading Eggspress to help develop their reading comprehension skills.

Reading books will be changed in class on a Monday. We encourage that children read every day at home and please record these in their reading records.

Best wishes

Miss Brooks, Miss Kipps and Mrs Osmenaj.
