Year 2 - Butterflies and Ladybirds

Summer Term 2022

We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. This half-term we will be learning the following:

Writing

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 The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton. 

Maths

The focus for maths this half term will be on properties of shape, temperature and time. 

Science

We will be focusing on 'Simple Machines' as our science topic this term and will be investigating how these six simple machines help us in our everyday life. 

Topic

In History pupils will be learning about the fascinating lives of the Ancient Greeks. In RE pupils will be learning about Hinduism. In the following half term, during Summer 2, children will be learning all about extreme weathers in their geography topic 'Extreme Earth' and how code in ICT. 

PE

Ladybirds: Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Butterflies: Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Art

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.

Best wishes

Miss Brooks, Miss Cruse and Mrs Osmenaj.
