Year 2

Welcome to Year 2. The teacher in the class is Miss Holmes and the teaching assistants are Mrs Broadbelt and Miss Nester.

Year 2 is a challenging year and we welcome your support to ensure that your child reaches their full potential. Home reading is essential and children should be aiming to read every night. Remember that reading your home reader more than once is great as it helps to develop fluency and reading speed which are both important as your child progresses through school.

Our topic for Autumn 2 is Fighting Fit and the children will be studying the things that humans need to survive, human growth and how to keep healthy. In art they will be examining the human form carefully using their drawing skills and then they will be making their own human sculptures.

In English children will be studying traditional tales and writing their own version of The Gingerbread Man. You can support your child with this by sharing and retelling a range of Traditional Tales such as Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel and Gretel and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

They will also be writing their own instructions.

Maths No problem is in full swing and we would like to remind you to make sure you get children to use visuals and draw pictures to help them solve problems. Again you can support your child at home by working on the 2,5 and 10 times tables. Have you tried Times Table Rockstars?
