Autumn Term 2019
In English this half term we will be writing stories based around our new class book. All will be revealed shortly! Our stories will have a clear beginning, middle and end and the children will use adjectives to make them interesting to read. We will continue reading in groups and focus on learning how to answer comprehension questions. As well as this, please keep reading with your child at home. It helps to talk about the book to check their understanding. Are there words they can read but perhaps don't understand the meaning of?
In Maths we will be working on strategies for subtraction and use number knowledge to solve problems and sequences. We will have a quiz on number bonds to 10 and 20.
We will also be very busy in science and geography. In history we will begin a new topic about Houses and Homes. Practice for our Nativity performance will begin soon. A busy term ahead. Let's get learning again!
Homework in Year 2:
Maths homework- This should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Maths homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday.
Literacy homework - This will be set on a Tuesday and should be returned to school by the following Tuesday. The suggested time is 20 minutes.
Reading - Children should read for 10 minutes at home every night if possible. Please ask the children to tell you about the story and ask some questions about the book. This shows they understand what they are reading and will help them suceed in Year 2.
