Welcome to Year 2

Welcome back to school, I hope you have all had a relaxing Summer holiday. Everyone is looking very smart in their new school uniform. Please remember to write your child’s NAME in all items of clothing.

In English we will start the year reading a story called Beegu, where we will do lots of talking around the book and write our own story and character profile.

In Maths we will be covering place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

We have got lots of exciting topics coming up over the first learning cycle. We will be doing lots of activities to answer questions based on the topics. The questions we will be answering are:

  • Who lives here?- Science
  • Balmoral or Buckingham?- Geography
  • Why should we care for others?- RE
  • Why live in Britain?- DT

Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday.

Please try and read with your child every day and record this in his/her reading record. It is important to also question your child’s understanding of what they have read.  Books will be changed every Monday.

Please remember PE is on Thursday and Friday and your child must be in full kit every week. PE kit is; black shorts, white polo shirt and black pumps.

Children in Year 2 can buy a drink and snack from the snack trolley during morning playtime.  They can choose from orange or apple juice and a variety of fruit. Both drinks and fruit are 20p each. If you would like to pay for the week, please put the money in a named envelope and hand it in at the beginning of the week. Alternatively, your child can bring in 20p per day.

To ensure the best possible learning in school your child needs to arrive on time (8.50am) and attend school every day. Please inform school immediately of the reason for any pupil absence.
