Year 2

Welcome back to school after the summer holidays. Year 2 have had a fantastic first few weeks back. We hope you enjoy finding out about what we have been up to.

 

Outdoor Area

Year 2 are very excited about our new playground equipment. They are also enjoying learning in the outdoor classroom. Some photographs have been uploaded at the bottom of the page if you would like to have a look.

 

 

Spelling

Your child will be given spellings to learn each week. Please ensure that you support them and check that they understand the spelling rules for each word set (where these apply). They must also be able to spell all of the Year 1 and Year 2 words. These are needed throughout their reading and writing and are, therefore, very important. 

 



Numeracy

Your child will be learning their x2, x5 and x10 times tables and division facts. They need to know these in and out of order. The children have access to Mathletics and Mangahigh, both of which contain activities to challenge them and develop all areas of their mathematical problem solving and reasoning skills. We hope that they will be used in combination with their work in class to ensure children have mathematical fluency. Please encourage your child to use these games and activities and to have fun with Numeracy.

Reading

We are keen to strengthen confidence in reading and promote a love of

books. Reading is a priority in school with opportunities for individual

reading, Guided Reading, class reading and paired reading. Your child

will have a different book in Literacy lessons each half term and they will

be basing their work on this. 

Bug Club is an excellent way for children to explore texts at a level they

are confident with. They will be able to collect points for correctly

answering questions whilst they are reading. This is monitored and

recognised in school. The website

We are making number sentences with the Numicon. It was more tricky because we couldn't use the 10 piece to make our number totals.
