This means that if their jumpers get mixed up, they are easy to find as all of the jumpers look the same!

Recommended Reading List- Year 2

This year, we will be issuing the children with two colour books that they can take home to read. These are to last the children until Friday when they need to bring them back in and their class teacher will then change them for two new colour books to last your child over the weekend. 

Their yellow reading record needs to be brought in every day.

Supporting your child with their learning

There are useful links to resources to support your children with maths, reading, writing and handwriting on our school website.

To find these links go to Learning >> Curriculum >> Subject pages >>

In Computing we have been using Google Chrome Music Lab to explore the work of Kandinsky and to create our own music! 

In our Year One Maths lessons, we have been learning about place value within 20. We have also been practising addition and subtraction by counting on and back on a number line, and using tens frames to support us. With this knowledge, we have been able to compare two numbers and see whether one is greater than, less than, or equal to the other. We have finished this unit and are just about to move onto place value within 50. For this, we will be counting on and back from any given number, comparing two numbers within 50, and representing numbers within 50. In Year Two, we have been partitioning two digit numbers into tens and ones and comparing objects and numbers using symbols. We have also been looking at a range of mathematical problem solving.

In English we have been learning about the Tear Thief story for our fiction, and we wrote our own short stories. We will now be moving on to learning about the human body and we will produce an information booklet about how to stay healthy for our non-fiction unit. In Year One, we have been working hard to use our phonics to spell words and form our letters correctly. We have also been working on using s and es for plural words, and ed and ing suffix ending words. In Year Two, we have been punctuating our sentences with capital letters and full stops and using our phonics to spell words correctly independently. We are really enjoying learning the features of poetry and writing our own poems.

In our whole class reading we have just started reading the Poem 'Leaves' by Elsie Brady. We are enjoying discussing the movement created using the different vacabulary.

In Science we have been learning about the human body and exploring our five senses. We have learned about the names for the different body parts, and have explored our senses by tasting a variety of foods and listening to some different music to explore how it makes them feel.

In History we are learning about Louis Braille. We have been sequencing his life, and have had a go at writing our names and the names of other objects using the Braille alphabet to help us to imagine what it was like for Louis Braille. We had a really nice discussion about what Louis Braille might have found difficult, and how we could help him to overcome these problems.
