Welcome to 2C
Summer Term A
Our connector is...
What can you see?
What a busy year it has been. However, we still have lots to enjoy before you are all off to Year 3!
This half term children will be using ‘The Window’ by Jeannie Baker to write contrasting setting descriptions. We will then be using the story to create our own poems.
In Geography we will be learning about hot and cold places around the world.
Children will be introduced to the vocabulary below and learn how a country's climate is affected by how close it is to the equator.
We will then be applying our knowledge by making short films about a hot or cold place. Children will also be creating collages using a range of textiles.
In Maths we will be applying our knowledge to a range of problem solving activities. Children will be learning how to divide using a number line. Children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables as well as the following facts by the end of Year 2. Please practise them regularly.
60 seconds = 1 minute
60 minutes = 1 hour
24 hours = 1 day
7 days = 1 week
52 weeks = 1 year
365 days = 1 year
366 days = 1 leap year
Library books will be changed every Tuesday. We will change six children's reading books each day. Your child will be told which day they are changing their book. However, it is very important that your child brings their reading book to school every day. Should your child need to change their book again during the week, we will of course do so.
Please read with your child daily and ask them questions about what they have read. Starting this half term we will be sending home 60 second reads as part of the weekly homework. Please ensure that your child practises reading the text aloud. By the end of Year 2 children should be able to read 90 words per minute accurately and fluently. If you have any questions about reading or how you can support your child at home, please speak to me.
This half term PE will be on a Friday. Your child will need a full PE kit in school, so that they can participate. Homework will be handed out every Friday to be completed and returned no later than the following Wednesday. Please ensure your child completes their homework and hands it in on time. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support this year and as always if at anytime there is anything you wish to discuss, please do speak to me.
