Autumn 1 2018
Welcome to Year 2!
I hope you have all had a good summer.
Just a reminder that the Year 2 classroom has moved and is now located in the previous CATS room. The children are to line up by the red pod on the classroom. They will then be escorted into the building and down the corridor into the classroom. The pupils have coat pegs in the classroom and will hang their coats there.
At home time the children will be leaving from the same pod door.
Just a reminder to out children's name in their uniform especially jumpers, cardigans and coats.
P.E. will be on a Tuesday with Mr McGovern. 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 will be sent on a Monday 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.
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.
The pupils will be revising maths facts from Year 1 that were learnt before the holidays. The pupils will be practicing number bonds to 10 and 20, counting in two's and tens and revising doubles and corresponding halves up to 5 and 10. 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.
Topic: Animal Magic
Our topic this term is about animals including humans.
The pupils will learn about what both humans and animals need to survive and stay healthy. The pupils will also participate in a range of working scientifically opportunities.
The children will learn about Madagascar and the animals that live there. They will compare the physical and human features of this country with the UK.
