Welcome to Year 2!
Term 2 is a busy term and we have lots of exciting things planned! In Science we will be learning about how our bodies grow and the importance of healthy eating and exercise. At the end of term, we learn about what Christmas was like in Victorian times.
In Maths, we will be focussing on addition and subtraction using written methods. We will then apply this knowledge to adding and subtracting amounts of money. As well as this, we will be practising our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Please practise times tables regularly at home - the website below is really helpful.
We will in our usual Read, Write Inc and Literacy and Language groups for English from Monday-Thursday and on Friday we will be doing a Big Write. There will be a focus on using our sounds to blend and read a range of words including 'alien words' ready for the phonics screening check later on in the term.
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.
