Class 2G - Year 2
Class 2G - Year 2
Welcome back, I hope you had a lovely half term and a well-deserved rest. The children worked unbelievably hard last term, they adapted well to the routines and to the jump up to year two and having the expectations of being at the top of the infants. The next six weeks will fly by as this half term is so busy but super exciting as we get ready for our Christmas nativity! I will be sending home lines/lyrics in the next couple of weeks for the children, please take some time at home to go through things with the children.
We are starting to read a lovely book called ‘Pattan’s Pumpkin’ that lends itself to some excellent writing opportunities for the children. Within maths we are continuing to embed the knowledge of numbers to 100, and addition and subtraction and will be moving onto money and shape over the next few weeks. We are continuing with daily RWI (phonics) sessions to keep building their fluency and understanding.
Within Geography we are deciding ‘Would you prefer to live in a hot or cold place?’ They absolutely love the continents song, so please ask them what the 7 continents are! This term within DT we will also be making some delicious healthy pizzas which I am confident the children will LOVE.
In Science, we are building on our knowledge from last term and delving further into materials by exploring the different ways of changing the shapes of objects made from different materials.
I cannot stress the importance of reading; it expands their vocabulary and builds their confidence within the curriculum. Please try to read a few pages each night, it really does make a difference. Please continue to log onto TTRockstars – the children who are logging on each week I have noticed a massive difference in their multiplication and division recall.
Please ensure all uniforms are clearly labelled and that a named water bottle is sent in each day. As the weather is getting colder, please ensure all children are coming into school with a coat on.
PE will take place on a Wednesday.
If you would like any extra work to help children at home, please let me know. (English/Maths/Phonics/Handwriting). Any queries please do not hesitate to ask.
Many thanks, for your continuous support, it is always greatly appreciated.
Miss. Ginley and Mrs. Wright
