Rabbits (Mr Chater and Mrs Bevan), Otters (Miss Sumner and Miss Pearson) and Badgers (Miss McCauslin and Mrs Mayse)
Welcome to Year 2! We hope parents will find this page useful to find out what is going on in school.
Week beginning 19/10/20
English this week - We will be reading the story 'A Dog's Day' and finding out about Rusty - a naughty dog who gets into lots of trouble. The children will be using this story to write their own poem, based on the traditional song 'London's Burning'. We will also focus on developing comprehension skills and learn about proper nouns.
Maths this week - We will continue to focus on number bonds - this time also to 100. We will go through different strategies to add single digits to 2-digit numbers.
Foundation Subjects for this half term
Topic - The Great Fire of London
Science - Materials including their properties and uses.
Computing - Online safety. This covers why we need passwords, websites that are suitable for children and what to do if you come across something that makes you feel unsafe.
PE - Key skills outside including balancing, jumping and hopping. Dance based on Julia Donaldson and the Great Fire of London.
RE - The theme is making choices and the rules found in Christian and Jewish texts.
PSD - Being me in my world - including making other feel welcome, caring about other people's feelings and working with others.
|Spellings and Homework|
Homework - Week 7 (set Friday 16/10/20)
For homework, there are three activities set on Mathletics.
With spellings, we are focusing on the sounds that a lot of children got wrong when we completed our phonics assessments. This week the focus will be on /ch/, /th/ and /ng/. We are trying a slightly different way of setting spellings from this week. The children will be learning the words in the coming week, so have not yet focused on them in school. That means that you can consolidate the learning from school at home before the test. There is also an optional vocabulary extension list for children who want a challenge.
Note that this week the test will be on Thursday.
