Welcome to Year 2
We hope you had a lovely summer holiday!
The Year Two teachers are Mrs Harris (2H), Miss Theakston and Miss Burton (2TB) and Mrs Davies (2D)
The teaching assistants are: Mrs Hadley, Mrs Beasley, Mrs Lochowska and Mrs Bilham
We can be contacted on our school email:
Homework will be set on Seesaw every Thursday and must be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. This will usually consist of a Maths and an English task.
Reading for at least 10 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Children will be allocated books on BUG CLUB, in addition to this they will be given a reading book from school each week to read at home home. If your child reads 5 times a week and has 5 adult signatures, they will be rewarded with a Golden Ticket.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 2 Team
This week we will be learning:
In English: We will be starting our new text 'The Lonely Beast' by Chris Judge. We will explore the cover, draw the beast, describe the beast and even think about how the beast feels. We will even design our own beasts.
In Maths: We will start our unit on Addition and subtraction with number bonds (addition and subtraction). We will learn how to check calculations using the inverse. We will also compare number sentences. You can use this link to find out more.
In Science we will review our experiments in materials with a mid-topic assessments.
In History we will look at the houses during the Great Fire of London.
In art we will begin sewing our cushions.
