Wonder, Believe, Shine & Achieve - Welcome to Year 2!
During the Summer Term, Year 2 will continue our work on ‘Aviation’ and will be involved in a Tinkology project where they will use recyclable materials to create their own planes, experimenting with size and shape. We will also look at the artist L.S. Lowry and take part in a whole class project about the Environment. We will continue to read a story each week that will inspire the children to write their own stories, biographies, recounts and poetry.
Our whole class reader this term is ‘The Hodgeheg’ by Dick King Smith.
In Maths, the children will be looking at problem solving, time, weight, volume and temperature. The children should still use TT Rockstars to practise their times tables.
Using the Come and See programme, Year 2 will look at the importance of spreading the word, rules and treasures.
The children are expected to read for approximately 10-15 minutes every night with an entry in the reading record.
Each week the children are given homework for literacy and numeracy in a separate homework book.
It is expected that the child should be able to access their homework with limited support from parents.
In addition to this, the children also receive weekly spellings to learn. They are encouraged to use them in sentences in order to develop understanding.
Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday and expected to be returned by Wednesday morning.
