Our learning theme this half term is ‘Inventors and Inventions’. We are so pleased with how engaged the children were with our themes in the Spring Term, despite difficult circumstances, and we know that they are going to love learning this term too.
Please see Microsoft Teams for the Curriculum Overview and Knowledge Organiser or Click Here.
Just a few reminders… We will be returning to the ‘home’ reading packs this term and all children in Year 2 will change their reading packs on a Friday. If they do not return a pack, then unfortunately, they cannot be given a new one.
Wednesday will continue to be our PE day and the children should come to school dressed in their PE kit. With the coming of the warmer weather please ensure that any sun hats they wear are named.
The Government previously announced that the end of Key Stage One SATS which usually take place in May, will not take place this year. Instead, children’s work will be based on teacher assessment. This is usually monitored through ‘moderation’ visits by the local authority moderators and we are currently awaiting guidance as to whether this will happen this year. Assessments will occur throughout the Summer Term.
Homework We have had a great response to the homework tasks set via Microsoft Teams and will continue to set weekly homework and spellings via Teams on a Friday, to be completed by the end of the day, the following Thursday. Thank you all for your support with this.
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 focus is on sequencing the events of the book, understanding vocabulary and inference as well as fluency and expression. If you may also like to encourage them to predict what a book will be about, based on the blurb or title and compare books by the same author or on similar topics. Please remember, your child can now log onto our new online E-Library called ‘Big Cats’. If you need reminding of their log on details please search your emails, in the first instance, and then email the school office.
Thank you for all of your continued support, especially during these challenging times.
