Ms Hudson, Mrs Preston, Mrs Williams and Mrs Brant would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 2! 

Our PSHE this term is all about Economic Wellbeing and we will be looking at the difference between wants and needs and how to save our money safely. In RE we are learning about what Jesus was like as a leader and what makes a good leader in different groups and organisations in our society.

In English, we are using the ‘Read to Write’ scheme.  Our text is ‘The King who Banned the Dark’ by Emily Haworth- Booth. We will be focusing on writing a persuasive letter to the King!

In Maths, we are practising SATS style questions ready for the last two weeks in May.  It would be great if you could have a try at some of the questions we have sent home. It would also be helpful if you could work on telling the time with your child. We will send home a clock with moveable hands to practise.

We alternate between history and geography each half term. This half term, we will be continuing with history and we are looking at the history of flight.

Likewise, art and DT alternate each half term. This half term we are developing our food technology skills in DT and making smoothies for someone at home. Lucky you!

Science is completed every week and we are learning about ‘Living things and their habitats’ and discovering things in our local environment which are living, dead and have never been alive. We will also look at food chains and discover animals get their food, how they are linked by what they eat and how animals depend on each other to survive.

ICT is also taught weekly and are exploring ‘Creating Pictures’ using impressionism, pointillist Art, Piet Mondrain and William Morris as stimuli. You will find our computer rules in order to keep us safe, on the website.

Our PE lessons will be on Thursday with PDS. Please come into school in your PE kit. Don't forget to remove/cover any jewellery (including earrings) and make sure your hair is tied up if it is long.

In music this half term, we will be listening to and appraising different genres of music based around the theme of ‘friendship’. The children will be encouraged to find and demonstrate the pulse and rhythm of different songs as well as accompanying them and continuing to learn the recorder. We will send recorders home to practise soon. (sorry! J) As a class, the children are doing brilliantly.

Reading books are changed on Thursdays. Please read at least 3 times a week and sign the yellow log book. There is no need to leave a comment but thank you to those that do.

Spellings are sent home on Thursdays and tested on the following Friday. Please continue to practise common exception words at home.

Thanks for your support and please contact us on Class Dojo or speak to us with any problems.
