Welcome to Year 2!

Mrs Nakarja, Miss Budd, Mrs Trotter, Mrs Hathi
Music Teacher: Mr Conlan PE Teacher: Mr Pearce
This term we will be learning about:
Keeping Healthy - Balanced Diet, Exercise, Personal Hygiene
We will also be making a healthy pasta dish and looking at African art.
The children will be given a homework booklet which contains all their spellings and homework for this half term. Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. There will be spellings to learn and an additional piece which will be English, Maths or Topic based. Occasionally we will set project work which the children will have longer to complete. There will also be an optional piece of homework each week for those children who wish to complete it.
The children should be reading as much as possible, everyday if they can! 10 minutes reading everyday will make a huge difference to their progress in reading. Reading forms part of their homework.
It is also really important to practice counting regularly in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. Once your child has mastered these please practice times tables. Start with the 2 x table and then progress to x10 and x5. Please also practice telling the time as this can be a difficult concept for children to learn. Any maths that can be applied to a real life context is really beneficial. Ideas include; recognising shapes, paying for items in shops, weighing when baking etc.
In order to take part in P.E lessons children must have the correct kit. For indoor P.E. this is a t-shirt and shorts. For outdoor P.E. this is a t-shirt & shorts or a dark coloured tracksuit for when the weather is colder. Plimsolls/Trainers are also required. Please make sure all kit is named including shoes.
