PE is on Tuesdays and Wednesday. Our PE kit is a school PE kit (which can be purchased at the school office) is a white t-shirt with the school logo, shorts and black pumps. Children will receive Dojo's when they have the correct kit in school.
Homework is sent out every Friday and should be returned to school the following Wednesday. Homework books that are returned on time will earn the children Dojo points!
Learning to read, write and spell is really important in Year 2, so any opportunity to practise at home would be fantastic!
Bring your book bag and reading book in each day and try to read for a few minutes each night to help you become a superstar reader!
In English we will be looking at both fiction and non fiction units. We will be studying a range of authors and looking at features of Non Fiction texts. We will focus on including interesting vocabulary in our writing as well as using conjunction words, suffixes and expanded noun phrases.
We will be focusing on number and place value this term. There will be a focus on the four different operations and the children will be working hard to solve problems. We will be developing the children's ability to reason their answers when solving mathematical problems.
This term we are doing Geography. We will be taking a 'journey around Africa' with our focus being on comparing and contrasting different towns, cities and villages in both places.
For Science this term we will be focussing on Materials. We will be finding out more about the properties of different materials as well as their uses and suitability for different objects. We will be focussing on learning lots of interesting vocabulary to help us to describe the materials that we will be investigating.
