Welcome to Year Two
Miss Martin and Miss Smith
Our topic for the Autumn term is 'Movers and Shakers'
This project teaches children about historically significant people who have had a major impact on the world. They will learn to use timelines, stories and historical sources to find out about the people featured and use historical models to explore their significance.
Useful Websites and Good books to read.
We will also study some companion projects. More information about our topics, and some ideas for ways in which you can support your child's learning at home, are attached at the bottom of the page.
Our PE days are TUESDAYS (outdoor) and WEDNESDAYS (indoor). Please ensure that children come to school in their school PE kits on these days - plain white T shirt, black bottoms and a red, grey or black hoodie or jumper.
Each week the children will be sent home with spellings to practice, which they will be tested on weekly, and a piece of maths learning which will be based on the learning in maths that week.
Reading is so important and as such is valued and encouraged in school as well as at home. Children will be given a phonics decodable book and a book for pleasure each week. These will be changed weekly. We would encourage reading at home as much as possible and if this can be recorded in their reading dairies then they will be awarded certificates in school. We like to hear the children read as much as we can in school so therefore we ask that book bags and reading records are brought to school every day please.
