Second half of Summer Term Newsletter




Dear Parents                                                                           


I hope that you have enjoyed the half term break.  We are in the process of growing vegetables and flowers in the Year 2 vegetable patch, if you have an hour to spare during the week it would be great if you could help us to water and maintain our garden during this half term.  If you have some spare seedlings which we could have to plant all will be gratefully received.


Attached is the Summer Term plan our topic coverage for this half term.

Literacy:  We will be reading and writing poems using 2 different structures and writing a chronological report.


Numeracy:  a lot of time will be spent on problem solving activities.  Knowledge and rapid recall of number bonds (2+8=10, 20 +80 = 100, 200+800= 1000 etc) and the 2, 5, 3, 4 and 10 times tables are vital as a base for using and applying maths. PLEASE CONTINUE TELLING THE TIME WITH YOUR CHILD – we have made super progress with this but need to keep practicing.


Swimming: please make every effort to remember swimming kit and have all kit marked with your child’s name.  Lessons are held on Tuesday (pm) and Wednesday (am), week commencing10th June. (A swimming hat tip – a little talcum powder inside stops it from sticking to your child’s hair when we put it on.)

French:  We are really good at doing the afternoon register in French.   We will continue to learn a variety of songs linked to numbers, colours. 



This half term we visit Burrington Coombe Farm, on Wednesday 3rd July and we will focus on habitats (link to Science, Geography and Literacy).


SATS results: will be sent out at the end of the term with the annual reports.


Website:  I regularly update Year 2/Indigo Class page with photos of some of the activities we do at school.   There are also a number of maths activities on our page which you can do with your child. 


Transition to Year 3:  Please be reassured that we will have a transfer morning when our pupils spend time in the Year 3 classroom as part of ensuring a smooth transition to the next year group.
