Welcome to the first half of the summer term. Our learning theme for this half term is, ‘Our Growing World’ and for the second half of the summer term it will be, ‘Predators’.
Please see the Year 2 section of our school website for the curriculum overview and knowledge organiser.
Just a few reminders…
Monday and Tuesday will continue to be our PE days and the children should come to school dressed in their PE kit. Please ensure that any sun hats are named.
Library books are collected in on a Thursday and your child is able to choose a new library book on a Friday.
As mentioned in our Spring newsletter, the month of May will see the reintroduction, after a two-year gap, of the Key Stage One SATs. Every Year 2 child across the country will have a ‘test’ in reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar, writing and maths. Some of the ‘tests’ are based on teacher assessments and other ‘tests’ are formal papers. The teaching staff do not call them SATs or ‘tests’ instead they are part of our everyday teaching. Your child’s SATs results will be reported to you with their end of Year 2 final written report.
Homework Thank you for your continued support with homework tasks set via Microsoft Teams. We will continue to set weekly homework and spellings via Teams on a Friday, to be completed by 5pm, the following Thursday.
Please do keep reading with your child as much as possible, whether it be a comic, information book, story book or even the shopping list! In Year 2, our discussion focuses on sequencing the events of the book, understanding vocabulary and inference as well as fluency and expression. Please remember, your child can log onto the online E-Library called ‘Big Cats’.
Thank you for all of your continued support,
With Best Wishes,
Mrs Cryer, Mr. Mason and Miss Morris Mrs Clark, Mrs Wademan, Mrs Loy and Mrs Kritzinger The Year 2 Teaching Team
