Welcome to the Year 2 page!
Below you will be able to discover all about Year 2's latest activities.
This week we will be working on 2D and 3D shapes in numeracy and in literacy we have been concentrating on writing stories, starting with planning a story, then writing a beginning using interesting openers. The book we are reading is called Katie in London by James Mayhew.
Our sound of the week for phonics is "oi" "oy" and "ou" "ow"
For example: boil and boy - shout and cow - same sounds but using different letters.
Please read with your child every night and discuss what has happened in the story. It is important that you sign your child's reading record book every night too. Thank you.
Homework will be given out weekly on Thursday or Friday and will consist of one piece of literacy and/or one piece of numeracy linked to the work we have been doing in class. The children will also be given a list of spellings to learn for the week.
Completed homework should be returned by the following Friday to Hummingbird Class, or the following Monday to Lion Class. We are very grateful for the support parents give in helping the children to complete their homework each week. However, we would like to remind all parents that it is important for the children to complete the tasks themselves as far as possible.
Spellings should be practiced two or three times over the week, ready for the spelling test in class at the end of each week.
Check back soon to find out about our next trip.
How Has London Changed?
Over this term our topic focuses on the city of London and how it has developed and changed over hundreds of years. This theme will be used to support children in developing their knowledge, understanding and skills across a range of subjects.
They are encouraged to ask questions, brainstorm ideas and use a variety of resources to investigate, record and present their learning.
