Autumn First Half Newsletter Year 2

Dear Parents

Welcome to Indigo Class - Year 2. This half term we will be focusing on the following topics:

Literacy and Well Being: during the first two weeks of this term as a whole school we will be using resources based on the book: ‘Here we Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. This explores the earth and all its components. Each lesson brings it back to our personal experience of living on earth today. So far Year 2 seem to be really enjoying it!

Show and Tell: is on a Friday afternoon each week.


An Island Home: we learn about the countries of the UK, with a focus on ‘Katie Morag’ and her island home. We will compare this to our own environment.

Science: the structure of a plant as well as the plants in our local environment: If you do have anything of interest please could your child bring it in for the display table.

Art: we will work at mark marking, using a range of materials, as part of our nature focus. At this time of year with all the autumn colours we would love some items from your garden or local area.

P.E.: is on Thursday and Friday afternoon so please ensure that your child wears hi or her kit to school. Girls do need to tie up their hair for P.E. lessons.

Phonics and Spelling: is ideally learnt by repetition so please revise the weekly words daily. The spelling test is every Thursday.

Our Class Webpage: is called Indigo so please visit it regularly to keep up to date with activities in class as well as some super maths and literacy activities.

Class Dojo:

We are not using the Home School Books but continue to use Class Dojo. So please look out for individual messages as well as whole class messages on Class Story.

Mindfulness and Pupil voice:

This year we are focusing on regular opportunities to practice and develop mindfulness and pupil voice to ensure that our children become confident and positive and know that their opinion matters. I am looking forward to exploring this important area of learning with Year 2.

Yours sincerely

Felicity Gibb
