Year 2

Welcome to Year 2-2018/19

Welcome to the Year 2 webpage which will be updated throughout the year with our class curriculum and news, updates and photographs of the exciting things that we have been getting up to.

 

Summer

During the Summer Term our topic will be a History focus with the learning questions asking ‘What happened during the Great Fire of London?’ and also 'What was it like when the Queen came to the throne in 1953?' Our topics provide vast opportunities for writing and we will be using texts such as 'Vlad and the Great Fire’ and ‘Fire Cat’ in Summer 1 and  'The Queen’s Knickers’ as a basis for our writing in Summer 2. 

 

Please note, your child will take their SATs Tests during the month of May, therefore no holidays will be

authorised during this time.

Spring

During the Spring Term our topic will be a Science focus with the learning question asking 'Why would a dinosaur not make a good pet?' As part of our topic and to enrich the learning experience for the children, Bolton Outreach team will be coming to spend time with us on Wednesday 6th October to deliver a 'Dinosaur Dig Workshop'. A letter with all the details of this will be sent home during the first few weeks of term. Our topic also provides vast opportunities for writing and we will be using texts such as 'Tyrannosaurus Drip', 'Stomp, Chomp, Roar' and 'Munch, Crunch, Dinosaur Lunch' as a basis for our writing.

Autumn

During the Autumn Term our topic will be a Geography focus which requires us to compare our country to that of a contrasting locality and this year we will be comparing England to Africa, and in particular, Kenya. As part of our topic and to enrich the learning experience for the children and African drumming and dance company will be coming to spend the day with us on Wednesday 26th September. A letter with all the details of this will be sent home during the first week back in September. Our topic also provides vast opportunities for writing and we will be using texts such as Handa's Surprise and Lila and The Secret Rain as a basis for our writing.

Important Information

* Homework will be sent home on a Thursday and returned on a Tuesday. Homework will be predominately Maths and will link directly to the work that the children have been completing in class that week, although some of it may be consolidation of previous learning.

* Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and tested the following Friday. It is crucial in Year 2 that your children learn their spellings in order for them to reach end of year expectations. Lists of all Year 1/2 spellings can be found at the bottom of this page.

* P.E. lessons will be on Tuesday and Wednesday for Y2S and Wednesday and Friday for Y2H. If your child wears earrings they will need to be removed by yourself or them prior to the sessions.

* Reading books need to be in school every day. Your child will read of specific days each week both individually and as part of Guided Reading sessions. Please ensure that your child reads at least 4 times at home each week and that this is recorded in their planner. 

 

We are very much looking forward to working with your child during their time in Year 2. If your ever have an questions and queries, please do not hesitate to ask. 

Mrs Sharrock, Mr Haygarth and the Year 2 Team
