Year 2 – Summer Term – 2nd Half

Dear Parents,

 

Welcome back to our final half term of this academic year.

 

This term Year 2’s topic is called ‘Heroes and Heroines’ and will be a very creative topic. The children will be looking at Scientific heroes like Isaac Newton and heroes from the past e.g. Florence Nightingale. We will also be looking at sporting heroes and eventually some superheroes.

 

In English the children will be writing reports, superhero stories and will be developing their written comprehension skills. For the first two weeks of this half term the children will not receive spellings for their weekly spellings test as they will need to spend this time practicing for the Spelling Bee. This list of spellings was sent home before half term. Please continue to read with your child at home and allow them to read aloud to you. The children do receive ladybirds for journal work, so please encourage them to do some, as this is great preparation for Year 3, where they will be set a weekly home learning task.

 

In Maths they will continue to develop their multiplication and division skills and will be looking at presenting information in bar graphs, charts and pictograms. You can help with this at home by regularly completing suggested activities shared with you at parents’ evening.

 

As you are aware the children completed the SATs tests last half term. Teacher assessment scores will be reported to you when you receive your child’s annual school report, later on this half term.

 

The children will also be participating in transition activities in preparation for Year 3 and more details about this will be sent on a separate letter.

 

Miss Moody from the University of Manchester will continue to teach the children as part of her final placement until Friday 23rd June. The children are enjoying having an extra pair of hands in the classroom!

 

Many thanks for your continuing support with your child’s learning both this half term and throughout the year.
