Welcome To Year 2

We have had a fantastic start to Year 2!

In maths, we are learning to read and write numbers to at least 100. Children are learning to recognise the place value of a 2 digit number, by playing games such as bingo and making their own Top Trump cards to play with. We are comparing and ordering numbers using the symbols <> and =.

In English, the children are having the opportunity to develop their literacy skills through our Superhero theme. We are learning to write our own set of instructions to make healthy, superhero soup. The children are looking forward to coming to school dressed up as a superhero. Don’t forget the children are being encouraged to be creative and turn their normal clothes and accessories into superhero clothes! To complement their costume the children will be creating their own superhero logo in class to wear on the day.

This term, we have planned a visit to church for our Harvest celebrations. This visit will enable children to consolidate and develop their understanding of Harvest Festival, as well as it being a great opportunity for the whole school to gather together and reflect.

We are looking forward to our ‘Debate Days’. These debates enable all the children to have their say on a subject that interests them, as well as learning the British Value of respecting the viewpoints of others. These debates also provide an opportunity for a good discussion which helps develop the children’s speaking and listening skills.

Forest School dates are now confirmed and these can be found under the forest school class page. The children will benefit immensely from these sessions, as they will develop their self-esteem and confidence, as well as learning to love and respect their outdoor environment.

The autumn newsletter is now attached and this will give you more information of what’s planned this term. As always, I will keep you fully updated of what’s going on in class, via our weekly homework letter.

Don’t forget drop-in sessions continue to be available on Mondays, between 3.15pm and 3.45pm, for you to discuss with me any concerns you may have. You can also arrange a time to speak to myself on the phone or I am able to offer a meeting at a later time, by prior arrangement.
