Welcome to Year 2
Who are we?
Miss WhitingThe Autumn Term
In Literacy, we are listening to familiar stories and writing our own stories by changing some of the events.
In Numeracy, we are exploring number bonds, addition, subtraction and shape. We are comparing measurements and beginning to use standard measures on a ruler.
Please can you help ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school on the following days:
Tuesday - Outside PE, children can wear jogging bottoms, tracksuits, and need a sweatshirt or fleece to help keep them a bit warmer in the cold weather. Please provide children with a pair of trainers.
Thursday - Inside PE children need a t-shirt and shorts that are above the knee
We suggest you provide your children with a labelled drinks bottle so that they can sip water throughout the day.
Maths - Children will have homelearning set on Education City, the children all have account log ins and passwords stuck inside the front cover of their reading record.
Reading is also essential for your child to continue making progress. Little and often is always the key. Listen to your child read for 5 to 10 minutes each evening and please don't forget to record in the comments box in the blue or orange reading record.
Key Stage One Production dates - Tuesday 17th December 2013 and Wednesday 18th December 2013
The children all have their targets for Speaking and Listening, Reading, Writing and Maths in their Lift Off books which stay in school. The targets are shared with parents at the different parents evenings throughout the year.
Your child will begin by identifying some familiar situations which might entail risk, considering ways they might keep themselves safe. They will discuss how they might react in risky situations – for example, emotions they might feel, physical responses and action they might take. They will work at memorising personal information and become aware of some situations where they might need to give this information. They will develop their awareness of the range of people who might help to keep them safe. They will learn what is meant by an emergency situation and when and how it is appropriate to ask for help. They will begin to recognise familiar situations where they can offer help and what form of help this might be.
