Year 2 is an important year for it is the year when children should become competent and confident in all areas, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. We will be working hard learning new skills and then applying them across all their lessons.
Our new topic is called called Wriggle and Crawl.
Grab your coat -we're going on a minibeast hunt! We will be sweeping ponds, log piles and puddles to see just who and what is at home. We will be observing habitats, life cycles and movement as Year 2 turns into entymologists.
We will be learning about snails, bees, butterflies and ants as well as indulging in a round of worm charming and carrying out a range of investigations with the RSPB as well as making our own digital minibeasts.

Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is expected to be returned the following Monday (or earlier). Homework returned on time will earn children 5 You’ve Been Spotteds and 10 team points. Children that do not return homework on time will be required to complete the homework in their own time. Homework will consist of times tables practice and spelling practice.
PE will take place on Monday afternoons. PE Kits must be in school on the first day of term and they must remain in school for the whole term. All jewellery, including earrings, must be removed (covering with a plaster is not allowed). All children must take part in PE and forgetting kit twice or more will result in lunch time detentions.
Reading Books must be in school every day and will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Children are expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. At the back of each book are the learning opportunities for the level of book your child is on.
Our 'Authors of the half term' are Mini Grey and Jill Tomlinson. Jill is best known for her story The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark, while Mini is famous for her Tractor Man series.
