Year 2

Autumn (1) 2019/20
 
Welcome to Year 2.  We are really looking forward to working with you and the children. 
 
Uniform
Just a reminder to label coats, jackets and any other school uniform. As the weather improves the children may want to bring in a sun hat. Please can the hat have their name. Thank you for your support.   
 
P.E.
P.E. will be on a Friday and the children will get changed into black shorts, black pumps and white t-shirt. Please can names be put P,E. kits to make it easier for the children to make sure they have their kit back in their bag. Thank you.
 
Homework
Homework will be sent on a Monday/ Tuesday if an INSET day and returned the following Monday of each week. If the children complete the homework before the Monday they are more than welcome to hand it in beforehand.
 
Reading
We will be doing various reading opportunities throughout the week in school from guided reading, shared reading, comprehension reading and individual reading. The children will be given their own individual reading book and reading log to take home to share.
 
Maths
All pupils will have the opportunity to create a Rock Star maths avatar in school. The pupils can use the times table rockstars programme both at home and in school. This is a programme we launched last year for Y2 - Y6 to help the children with their times tables. A note for parents that the calculations show both the multiplication and division facts.
 
The maths link below (Hit the Button) has a variety of interactive games that the children can play to help learn and improve their recall of maths facts.
 
Science
Our topic this term will focus on 'feeding and exercise'.  We will learn about what humans and animals need to survive.  
 
Vocabulary you may want to learn:
food, water, survive, healthy, hygiene, air, growth, exercise, safety, health.
 
Geography
For geography our topic is the island of Madagascar. The children will learn about compass points and participate in looking at maps and atlases to identify features. The pupils will compare the climate of Madagascar with the UK and the physical and human features.
