Year 2

Spring 2 Topics and Activities

During this half term in Year 2 the children’s learning will be inspired by the topic ‘Pirates’.

We will be learning about famous pirates throughout history, creating pirate maps to find buried treasure as well as using our ICT skills to produce posters.

In addition to this we have a 3D pirate DT project to create gruesome pirates.

Life in Year Two

P.E.

This takes place on a Tuesday and Thursday so both an indoor and outdoor P.E. kit are essential. Children must have their kits in school Monday to Friday. They will bring it home every Friday after school.

Water bottles

The children do need water bottles in school every day. Water breaks are provided during the day, as well as the children being able to choose to have a drink when thirsty. Water bottles are often taken to the P.E. lesson to ensure the children remain well hydrated during physical exertion.

Homework

Welcome to Year 2 Maths Homework:
Each week we will complete a mental maths test on a Tuesday morning, afterwards the children will individually work with Mrs Sipka on their maths target.  The maths target is either straight from the mental maths paper or from work within class which we feel will benefit your child’s learning. Maths homework will be given out on a Tuesday and expected in the following Tuesday. 
 
Welcome to Year 2 Spelling and Guided Reading Homework:
Each week we will complete a spelling test on a Thursday morning. The children will be required to learn the spelling individually, then to place it correctly in a sentence.  The spelling target is either straight from the spelling test or from work within class which we feel will benefit your child’s learning. Guided reading homework will be a comprehension for you and your child to work through together allowing your child to explore different text and question forms. Spelling and guided reading homework will be given out on a Thursday and expected in the following Thursday.
 

Thank you for all your support, Miss Henderson & Mrs Sipka.
