Year 2 Class Page - Autumn Term 2
Welcome to Year 2.
I am Miss Adenuga, the class teacher. The whole Year 2 team will be more than happy to support you with any questions you may have or any information you require. We will be available in the mornings at drop off and at home time. We will all do everything we can to ensure the children develop in their skills, knowledge and learning and have a fun and memorable year.
What we are learning:
Our topic for Autumn 2 is 'Growth' and our current class book is 'The Emperor's Egg'. This links well with our Science topic on growth. Children will have the opportunity to learn about how animals, including humans, grow and survive in their various settings.
In Maths, we will be covering addition and subtracting numbers up to 100, using various representations such as the column method, partitioning, bar models, part-part whole models as well as children using reasoning skills for problem solving calculations.
We will be learning about significant people as part of our History topic. Children will be able to identify historical figures on a timeline and use primary and secondary sources to create a fact file on these significant figures.
PE will be on Thursdays and Fridays, please ensure that children have their PE kits on these days. PE kits should comprise of a white t-shirt, black bottoms and black trainers only, please. Keep in mind that the children need to have their PE kits in their bags and should not be worn to school on the day.
Children will have a reading record which they can take between home and school. Please ensure that you make a comment in the reading record when you read with your child each day at home.
Tasks will be given to children every Friday and they are expected to complete these and return to school the following Wednesday.
Children will be given a spelling sheet based on the Year 2 common and exception words. This work also needs to be returned on Wednesdays.
If you have any questions, please feel free to speak with one of the Year 2 team. Thank you.
