PE is on Monday and Tuesday. PE kits must be in school on these days. Please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled.

With spring fast approaching, our topic this term is ‘Into the Garden’. Through practical activities, children will be learning what plants need to grow and stay healthy. They have planted their own sunflowers and we look forward to watching them grow.

English

Writing is taught through high quality texts, exploring a range of genres. Spelling, punctuation and grammar skills are taught throughout writing. This term, English will be based around the story of ‘Katie and the Sunflowers’.

Maths

In Year 2, children have daily opportunity to practice arithmetic skills. We also continue to develop a range of mathematical skills, including measure, time and money. Children learn these skills through practical activities and problem solving challenges. To support your child’s learning in maths at home, please continue to ractice 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Reading

Please continue to read every day at home with your child for 15 minutes per day. This will support your child’s understanding across the whole curriculum. We will be sending home a comprehension guide in the form of a handy bookmark. Your child should bring their book to school with them each day for class reading activities.

Homework

Every Friday, children will be given a maths and English homework task. This will support your child’s learning in school.
