Please check your child's bag for two important letters about Rose Day and our trip.

Summer Term

Welcome back to what is guaranteed to be a busy and fun term. Our new topic will be Dragons and Dungeons. We will learn about castles, the people who lived and worked there and fantasy creatures from that time. In English we will write adventure stories that are full of interesting vocabulary and description. Watch out for a visitor to our classroom who may leave us something very special to take care of!

We will be using all our maths skills to solve problems and answer questions accurately. We will continue to work hard at checking our work, using our maths knowledge to prove our answers are correct.

We will continue our reading focus this term. Please read with your child each day, you will see an improvement in their reading skills and understanding. It helps learning in all subjects. Please continue to use the book marks sent home earlier in the term. Reading records are checked once a week and housepoints are given for the number of times your child has read with an adult. In addition, talking about the book and asking questions about it will help your child understand more.

In Science we will be learning about the lifecycles of different animals and help support local wildlife. We will be going on a trip too - look out for details soon.

I will sending home information about Rose Day shortly and we have the honour of dancing on the day. An exciting time for Year 2!

If you have any questions at all about Year 2,  please pop in or send an email so I can help.
