Summer Second Half Term
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 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.
Home readers: thank you for reading with your child. Reading regularly is so beneficial for both reading fluency but almost more importantly spending some quiet time together reading is so special!
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: As soon as dates and times have been confirmed we will let you know.
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.
We are in the process of planning a number of experiences for our Year 2 children. As soon as I have got definite dates, I will let you know.
End of Year reports will be sent out at the end of the term.
Website: I regularly update Year 2/Indigo Class page with photos of some of the activities we do at school.
Transition to Year 3: Please be reassured that we will have a transfer morning where our pupils spend time in the Year 3 classroom as part of ensuring a smooth transition to the next year group.
Class Dojo: please continue to use this to send us messages and we will reply as soon as we can.
