Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds
Summer Term 2021
We hope you have all had a lovely Easter and are ready for our final 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 this book with you and returns them back to school. Additionally, our English class text will be Greek Myths.
The focus for maths this half term will be on multiplication and division. Your child will be exposed to different mental and written strategies. For multiplication and division, we will be solving problems using grouping, sharing and arrays.
We will be focusing on Plants and exploring the conditions a plant needs in order to grow.
Year 2 will be focusing on the following topics:
- Music – I Wanna Play In A Band
- History – Ancient Greeks
- R.E. - Hinduism
PE will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child comes to school on those days wearing their PE kits.
Art will take place on a Friday with Ms 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.
Reading 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.
