Key Information for the AutumnTerm

Homework
Homework will be set each Friday which will be due in on the following Wednesday. Children will be set a times table challenge to take in 4 minutes. They will also be given a set of Year 2 spelling words to learn which will be tested on the Wednesday.
Reading
Reading is essential to most areas of the curriculum. A child who reads regularly shows improvement across the rest of the curriculum as well. Please find the time to read with your child as often as possible. Ideally, we recommend a minimum of 10 minutes each day. Once you have read with your child do sign to say this has happened as we will be checking reading records during each week.
P.E.
Wednesday– orienteering with Mr Rolison,
and
Thursday– basic skills with Mr Youson
It is expected that each child brings their outdoor P.E. kit with suitable trainers and indoor P.E. kit with pumps each week.
Please make sure all items of kit are labelled to avoid losses.
Literacy
We are currently reading the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch and using it to write instructions for our own anti-seagull sandwiches.
Mathematics
In our unit of Additive Reasoning, we are applying different strategies to add and subtract quickly.
R.E.
Our first R.E. unit is that of Old Testament Stories and Prayers where we have introduced a wide range of figures from the Old Testament.
Science
In Science, Year 2 are learning about the uses of materials in our everyday lives. We will discuss their uses and why they have been chosen (which requires a lot of practical investigations).
