Welcome to Year Two    Summer Term 2019  

Welcome to our Summer Term in Year 2.  

 

What an exciting Spring Term we have had.  Our residential trip to Tattenhall was just amazing.  We’ve got lots of exciting things planned for this term.

In science we are going to be looking at plants, animals and humans.  We will be growing plants from seeds, looking at animals and their offsprings and finding out how we can keep ourselves healthy with diet and exercise. Our Talk for Writing work is going to based on non-fiction texts connected with science and story retelling. We will also be working neatly on our joined up handwriting. Our maths work will see us all using the four number operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and divison to solve problems and reason. We will also be using fractions, measures and geometry.

Hopefully we are going to have some super weather so we will be involved in lots of outdoor sports.  We are beginning with tennis so make sure you have your outdoor PE kit ready.

Can all children have a filled water bottle everyday.   Thank you.

Ways to help at home:

The children are welcome to bring in any books or relevant objects to share with the class (please name them) connected with our topic.  The children could also use the internet, with your support, and visit the local library to find any interesting facts.

Reading Books (3 Scheme Books and 1 Choosing Book)

Books are changed once a week and your child's book change day is written in their diary.  3 books will be issued for the week from the schools reading scheme.  Please discuss the books with your children to help them to develop a greater understanding of the book.  Challenge them to see if they understand the meaning of words they are reading.  You will be surprised at how many children can read difficult words but have no idea what the word means.  The children are also given the opportunity to choose a book of their own choice – in response to the reading questionnaires that were given to both parents and pupils we have recognised that the children would like more choice with their reading books.  Whilst the scheme books have a job to do in teaching the children the skills to become competent readers the idea of the choosing book is that it is one your child is interested in and it is a book is to be shared and enjoyed with an adult.  THE CHILDREN ARE NOT EXPECTED TO READ THE BOOK INDEPENDENTLY TO YOU AS WITH THE READING SCHEME BOOK.  Please make sure that your child has their reading books in school everyday as your child will also be reading individually in school to a member of staff or a parent helper.

The children are in new Kagan Groups.

The book change days will be as follows:

  • Blue and Green: Monday

  • Gold and White: Tuesday

  • Red and Yellow: Wednesday

  • Orange and Silver: Thursday

Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and needs to be returned (named) by the following Thursday in their Homework Folder.  The homework will either be literacy, numeracy or topic based.  

Each week the children will have either spellings or mental maths to learn at home and the children will be tested on the learned spellings or maths on a Thursday. 

PE

Our PE slots this term will be on Wednesday afternoon and a Friday afternoon.

- Indoor /outdoor kit (shorts and t’shirt) with pumps or trainers will be needed.  

- Outdoor kit (joggers and jumper) with trainers will  be needed.

I can't wait to get started......
