Praise Postcards in Year 2


Welcome back to the first half of the Summer Term.

I hope that you are all well rested and ready for a busy half term.

We will be learning about:

LITERACY: Non Fiction: Coral Reef. Fiction: Traction Man.


MATHS: we will continue telling the time, division and applying 2, 5 and 10 timetables in reasoning and problem solving. We will also be learning about fractions: ½ ¼ and 1/3 of number and shape.


SCIENCE: We are investigating waves and how they are formed and their effect on the beach. As an introduction to our summer term topic HEALTH AND GROWTH, we will be watching tadpoles grow in a tank and we will be exploring and recording their lifecycle.


FOREST SCHOOL - Our Garden: We have our own patch in the vegetable garden and will be planting a variety of vegetables and some flowers. Activities will be an integral part of Science.


GEOGRAPHY: Oceans and Seas: this will include a revision of the 5 oceans of the world but also the seas around the United Kingdom. We will link a variety of activities to both Literacy and Numeracy.


ART: we will investigate mixing of colours and create sea collages and find out about the famous artist J.W.M. Turner.


PSHE – we will be exploring Relationships using our Jigsaw resource.


SCHOOL WEBSITE – INDIGO CLASS PAGE – please look on our page from time to time. I also regularly update photos of activities we have done during the term.


We are looking forward to another busy term and hope that the children will be inspired by the learning experiences which they encounter.

Please keep up the daily reading so we can keep up the progress they have made so far.

Please continue to use Class Dojo as a form of communication about any concerns or queries.
