Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds
Autumn Term 2021
We hope you have all had a lovely Summer and are ready for our first term. 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 streamed into similar reading ability 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 Happy Poems by Roger McGough.
The focus for maths this half term will be on Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
We will be focusing on Everyday Materials and exploring man-made and natural materials.
Year 2 will be rehearsing weekly for an end of term performance called 'Pirates vs Mermaids.' Please encourage your children to learn the songs and their lines. Performance date soon to follow.
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.
