Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 web page.

Welcome back to a new year.  Miss Mir and Miss Bibi would like to welcome all our parents and children  back to school and we hope you have had a wonderful holiday. 

We are now back to eating our lunches in the dinner hall and children will have some options for their dinner. They are welcome to bring a packed lunch from home. 

Year 2 P.E. will be on a Monday and Tuesday.  Please ensure children wear their P.E. kit for both days instead of their uniform.  Our P.E. kit uniform is a plain white t shirt, black shorts or jogging pants and a plain black jumper, please ensure your child is in the correct kit. 

This half-term we will be focussing on developing our reading and writing skills with a focus on handwriting and letter formation. In maths we will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction and counting in 2s and 5s and 10s.

In English we are looking at the story of Little Evie and the Wild Wood.  We will be using this to write our own diary entries. 

To help your child at home please read with them every day and practise their spellings which have been set on Spelling shed.  For maths the children need to be secure with doubling and halving numbers to 10 and 20 and number bonds to 10 and 20. If you need your child's log on details please contact their class teacher who will be happy to help.

In Geography we are looking at locational knowledge and naming the countries in the United Kingdom. In RE we are looking at how new babies are welcomed into the world and in Computing we are learning how to stay safe on the internet. 

 In Science, we will be learning about animals including humans, finding out how to keep healthy and observing how animals grow.
