January 2019

Welcome back! We hope you have had a relaxing and joyful Christmas.

We are excited to start our Topic, 'Castles, Dragons and Knights', where we will be investigating appropriate materials for construction linked to castles, learning about our past and current monarchy and how people used to live in castles.

In Maths, we will be completing our work on division and multiplication. We will then be moving onto measurements and reading scales, data and word problems.

In English, we will be reading 'Tell me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris. We will be writing a detailed description of our own mythical creature using adjectives, adverbs and varied sentence types. Following our trip to Warwick Castle, we will be writing non-chronological reports on castles, kings and dragons.

In RE, we are starting our new topic, 'Books', where we will be looking at different books used in the catholic faith and how they are used.

We will now also be sending spellings home with homework to be learnt for spelling tests on Fridays. To help your children achieve their best, please practice these at home.

September 2018

Welcome back Year 2!

We have had a great start to the term. We have started our Topic, Marvellous Me, where we've been identifying parts of our body, our sense and how to keep healthy.

In Maths we have been finding out about place value and identifying what each digit stands for in a number, We have also been looking at addition and are moving onto subtraction soon.

In English, we have been learning the story Avocado Baby by John Burningham and we have created some excellent actions to remember it. We've been focusing on basic sentence structure and punctuation.

In RE, we are studying 'Beginnings' and we have been learning the story of creation. We will now be learning about Psalms and prayers, and how we say them at the beginning of the day.

Year 2 Prayer

Dear God,

Thank you for our school, the children and the teachers.
Please help us to do our best in everything we do and learn new things.
I will try to remember that you live in me and my friends.
I will show your love to others and grow with you each day.

Amen
