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 - Inside PE children need a t-shirt and shorts that are above the knee
Wednesday - 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.
We suggest you provide your children with a labelled drinks bottle so that they can sip water throughout the day.
Maths is given out once a week and the work is connected to the learning they have been doing in class. If your child needs help and you do not feel you are able to help them please remind them to speak to the adults in school.
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.
We recently had a visit from Booster Cushion Theatre Company who entertained us with Old Mcdonald and The Three Little Pigs plus... . The children all enjoyed the show and lots of children even took part in the action. Look out for photo's to follow..
See the children's targets for reading, writing and maths below.
In the Spring Term children will learn how to keep themselves safer in a variety of personal safety contexts. They will begin by identifying those people they have chosen for themselves who they trust and who they would feel comfortable talking to if they have a worry. This will be used to develop a Safety Circle. They will be able to assess how safe they feel in the school building and grounds, and will also consider safer places to play outside school. They will learn about their sixth sense and how to use their senses to help keep themselves safer. Children will learn names for body parts, and how to distinguish between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ touches. They will explore ‘good’ and ‘bad’ secrets and tricks. They will practise assessing risk, and will develop strategies for keeping safer, including learning about and practising assertiveness skills.
