Autumn 2 - Our topic for this half term is Post and Parcels.
Our Big Question is 'What is the best way to send a message?'
Autumn 1: We have enjoyed making observations of the weather and changes in the environment as we have moved into the season of Autumn. The children have taken a selection of photos and they have used these to create observational drawings in their sketch books. We have been looking at shapes, space, colour and tone.
In literacy we have been working on using describing words to make our writing more exciting. Inspired by explorations of our outdoor area we wrote this poem together. We hope you like it!
Today we learnt about a very famous poem written by John Keats. Mrs Casper read it to us and we talked about the different words and what they meant. The poem was written a long long time ago. We compared it to our poem. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we did.
Autumn Term 1 Topic
This half term our topic is 'Healthy Hearts and Minds'.
Our big question is 'What does it mean to be healthy?'
Please see our Knowledge Organiser below.
Welcome to Year 2 Class of 2020-2021. We look forward to welcoming you back to school on Wednesday 2nd September. Mrs Newell and I look forward to seeing you! Mrs Casper
Year 2 are currently Reading...
Our Routines and Homework:
We expect the children to read at home MOST school days. The children will bring home a self chosen reading book from their book band and also a guided reading book which they are working on during their guided reading sessions. Please ensure that both books are brought back to school daily as the children will be doing work based on their guided book. It is helpful if you comment in the reading diary once you have listened to your child read. Remember, not only do we want our children to be good at reading, we also want them to comprehend and be able to answer questions about what they have read. The children can swap their self chosen book once they have finished it. Books must be placed in the class box before they are returned to the book shelves by a member of staff.
Weekly spellings lists will be shared with the children on Fridays and will be tested the following Friday. Please support your child in accessing Spelling Shed online using their individual password. Your child may also be given a word card to keep in their book bag. This can be used for reading and spelling practice.
Children should practice the Year 2 Key Instant Recall Facts for each half term (KIRFS) and you may also want to revisit the Year 1 Kirfs. Please see below
Our PE day is Wednesday - Please make sure all items are clearly named, thank you.
