Naming Uniform

Please ensure that all of your child's uniform are named on the label (initials are fine as long as the clothes are identifiable).

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

Knowledge Organisers

Purpose:

To share  additional information about our curriculum. Please share these with your child and help them to learn the key vocabulary.

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 Maths we have been learning about place value. In Year One we have been counting forwards and backwards to 20, and we have been representing numbers to 20 with objects. In Year Two we have been representing numbers to 100 with various resources, and we have been learning about comparing numbers and partitioning the tens and ones in a number using a place value grid.

In English we have bee practising to use our capital letters, full stops and finger spaces. We have also been working hard to use our phonics mats to help us with our sounds. We have been learning about the different seasons and we have written a diary entry.

In our whole class reading we have been learning the story 'Where the Wild Things Are.' We had lots of fun making our own wild things and describing what we do when we feel wild!

In Science we have been learning about plants. We shared what we already know about plants and we thought of some questions of what we would like to find out. We have enjoyed learning about the different parts of a plant and the different parts of a tree and each parts purpose.

In Geography we have been learning about Autumn. We have shared what we already know about Autumn and what we would like to find out. We have also sorted pictures to show that we know the weather, the festivals, the clothes you wear and the trees you see in Autumn time.

In History we are learning about the Great Fire of London. We have just listened to the story of what happened and we have sequenced the pictures of the story in the correct order. We are also looking forward to learning about the Great Fire of London in our English unit of work next week.
