Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds
Spring Term 2022
We hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break. This half-term we will be learning the following:
Year 2 will be continuing to follow the Read, Write, Inc. programme. During this term, your child will be placed into similar reading attainment groups, where they will be able to read a story fluently and complete writing tasks based on what they have read. Your child will be bringing home 3 books each week (storybook, book bag book and a library book). Please ensure your child reads these books with you and returns them by the date written in their reading records. Additionally, our English class text will be Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.
The focus for maths this half term will be on Money, Multiplication and Division.
We will be focusing on 'Living Things and Their Habitats' as our science topic this term and will be exploring local, micro and coastal habitats.
In History pupils will be learning about the fascinating lives of England's marvellous monarchs. In Geography pupils will be learning about South America and the colourful city of Rio de Janerio. In the following half term, during Spring 2, children will be learning about Sikhism in RE, the United Kingdom in Geography and how to create exciting computer content in ICT.
Ladybirds: Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Butterflies: Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Art will take place on a Tuesday for Ladybirds and on a Thursday for Butterflies with Mrs Clausen.
Homework and Reading
Homework will be set on Monday via Mathletics weekly. Children also have access to Times Tables Rockstars where they should be focusing on their 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
Library books will be changed in class on a weekly basis. We encourage that children read every day at home and please record these in their reading records.
