2S – Dahl Class 2G – Walliams Class
Welcome to Year 2!
Mrs Green and Miss Stonehouse welcome you to Year 2. It has been a long time since some of you were last in school and we are really looking forward to having you back! Attached below is a welcome back powerpoint that you might wish to look at so you are familiar with some of the changes that have happened.
Although this an important year as the children will be doing their SATS in May, we will be spending the first few weeks settling in, learning the new routines and focussing on well-being. We also have lots of fun things in store and our topics include; The Great Fire of London, A Victorian Christmas and Oceans and Continents which we will be linking to the 2021 Olympics.
In Maths, we will be focussing on place value and reading and writing numbers to 100. We will also be comparing numbers and objects and ordering them. In addition, it would be beneficial for the children to practise their 10 and 2 times tables - this website is really helpful.
We will be focussing on phonics this term and will be learning to read red words, these are also called Common Exception Words and there is a list below for children to practise at home. Our English lessons will be linked to books we are going to read in class, beginning with 'The Koala Who Could..'
Please listen to your child read regularly as this will really help them with their learning. Books will be sent home, in addition, there are links to a range of ebooks below.
