Welcome to Year 2
Spring 1 2019
Welcome to our Year 2 newsletter
Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year!
During Spring 1 our topic is ‘Robots.’ Please see our topic web for the content that we will be covering this half term.
English: We will be focussing on the book ‘The Robot and the Bluebird’ by Davis Lucas. This will book will be our key focus for the first four weeks of term. The children will be completing a whole variety of activities through cross-curricular subjects.
Reading: We will be continuing with ‘Book Club’ and your children will complete a variety of activities associated with that book each day. Please continue to support your child’s reading at least once a week, asking them questions about the text and encouraging their use of tone and expression in reading. The more the children can talk about the books and answer inference questions and highlight where they found the answer within the text will greatly support their work in class.
In Mathematics we will also be looking to develop many of the skills we covered in the Autumn Term. Please see our ‘Topic Web’ for further information about what the children will be learning.
SATS- There will be a SATS presentation evening with a date to be confirmed.
Friday 8th February 2019- Open afternoon. Please feel to come and join in with your child’s learning for the afternoon!
PE Another gentle reminder please ensure children with shoulder length or longer hair have it tied back in preparation for PE and that earrings are removed where possible.
PE days this term: Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon.
The children will need their PE kits for both lessons. Please could you send in some named leggings/ jogging bottoms to enable PE to take place outside.
Sycamore and Willow: Friday PM
Please note; we will only be able to issue a new book if the previous one has been returned. A charge of £5.00 is made for lost books.
Education City homework will continue to be set in a block, in which there will be no completion deadline. Please also ensure that you are accessing the resources on Purple Mash.
Open door Policy:
We hope that if you have any worries or concerns about your child that you feel we need to know about, you will come and speak to us as soon as it is convenient for you or make an appointment for a chat.
Thank you for your continued support.
