Experiences

Animals and their habitats

We launched this topic with an afternoon of forest school; making a minibeast and creating a habitat for it. Lots of time will be spent outside looking for minibeasts and observing their characteristics.

 

The Seaside

We will begin this topic with a trip to the seaside; looking at the human and physical features.

 

 

Reminders:

 

  • Daily Reading: Please read with your child daily at home and record their progress in their Reading Record. It is important that your child understands what they are reading so please try to question them about the book. There are examples of suitable questions in the front of their reading records. A weekly reading certificate will be awarded to every child who reads at home every evening.

 

  • Home Learning: This is given out on a Friday and must be returned to school by the following Wednesday. Home learning is an essential part of Year 2. Each week your child will receive one piece of literacy, one piece of numeracy, spellings and MyMaths tasks on alternate weeksA focus this term is for the children to learn the common exception words (key words that don’t link to a particular spelling pattern).

  • PE Kit: This year PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday. Your child should have their PE kit in school as this is an essential part of the National Curriculum. In order to ensure all children remain safe during PE sessions, all earrings must be removed.
