Welcome to the Year 2 web page. In Year 2 we enjoy building our independence and using this to help us learn in a variety of ways. The teachers are Miss Keates and Mrs Chorlton. The teaching assistants are Mrs Janghir, Miss Wachnuik and Miss Holt.
This term in English we are focusing on the text Lila and the secret of rain. We will be developing our understanding of what the text means and making predictions about what we think will happen. For writing we will be writing both Fiction and Non-Fiction texts including instructions.
In Maths we are making sure we understand what a number is and howe many tens and ones are in it. We are using lots of equipment and images to help with this. We will then use this knowledge to solve problems and calculations. We enjoy maths as there are lots of ways to solve the problems and we can use the equipment around us in our classroom.
We are starting a new topic called 'Superhumans' and will be learning all ab out how wonderful our bodies are and how we can look after ourselves ensuring we keep healthy. The children will have lots of experiences and it will be linked to our Art and DT programmes of study.
To help your child at home you could practise counting in 1's, 2's 5's and 10's backwards and forwards starting at any number up to 100. Also practise timetables 2, 5 and 10.
When you are reading with your child please ask questions about what your child is reading and their opinions on the book as well as signing their reading jotters.
Examples of questions include:
- What is your favourite part of the story?
- Why do you like think a character did that?
- What might happen next?
- Can you find a word that means the same as……?
You could also ask your child their English and Maths targets and practise these skills with them.
Homework is given on a Friday and is due back the following Wednesday.
