Year 2

Summer 1 – 2022

Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a lovely Easter holidays, but now we’re back and we have a lot of work to do!

So here is some information about our class, just to remind you.

  1.    PE is back to Tuesday this half term, so always have your PE kit ready for that day, with your t-shirt, shorts and pumps labelled. As it is Judo, it will always be inside. 
  2.    You need to read your reading book every day, if you read 3 times a week you can earn lots of dojos!
  3.    Spellings will be sent home on a Friday, and tested on Friday, so pupils have one week to learn their spellings.

At the bottom of the page is an overview of all the things that we will be learning this half term.

In English, we are reading the book ‘Rosie Revere- Engineer’ by Andrea Beaty.

We will also be reading a range of books linked to this topic.

You will also be developing your phonics, which will help you with your reading, writing and spelling. Here is a website link that can help you:

You also have a Bug Club account, where I have organised a range of books to read. Your log in details are on your Bug Club Sticker in your Reading Log. Here is a website link that can help you:

In Maths, we are focusing on subtraction, and below I have put a link to some games which can help you. I want you to keep on practising your number work on Numbots, use the link below. We are also having a push on developing your understanding of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. This can be practiced on TT Rockstars, I have added a link to that as well:
