Spring Term 2019-2020
I'm looking forward to another exciting term of learning with you in Year 2.
In English we will continue to look at word classes and use phonics and grammar knowledge to spell accurately. Our history topic this term is The Great Fire of London and our learning will link with English work to write a historical recount of the events.
Please keep reading with your child at home to build up stamina to read for longer periods of time. 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 school our reading will also focus on comprehension questions, using the texts to find the answer.
In Maths we will begin by working on strategies for subtraction and addition and use number knowledge to solve problems and sequences. We will also work on multiplication and division and begin working with fractions. We will soon begin to learn times tables by memory.
We will also be busy in science, art, music, ICT, geography and more plus we will continue to be active in PE lessons, and on our field track.
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.
Spelling homework will be set on a Friday and tested in school the following Friday.
If you have any questions please do ask.
