Welcome to Year 2
Article 29: Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities.
Welcome back to school and the Summer term!
This term we will be making the most of our fantastic outdoor environment and (hopefully!) the warmer weather by taking more of our learning outdoors during Forest Schools! Although we hope for warm and dry weather, the children each need some wellington boots or other appropriate footwear and a waterproof coat. We will do Forest School each week starting in week 2 so it would be useful if these items could remain in school for the whole term.
Classes will do Forest School on the following days:
- 2L – Monday
- 2R – Tuesday
- 2DS – Thursday
This term we will also be learning about food, diet and exercise in our project called ‘What’s Cooking?’. Click the link to see the Year 2 Term 6 Curriculum Web. We will be learning about different types of food, how they are produced and where they come from. We will also learn the importance of staying healthy, exercising and being hygienic and will be designing, making and selling healthy snacks to the children in the school!
Children have continued to make great progress with their cracking times tables and have done really well learning their 2’s, 5’s and 10’s times tables. Keep practising these little and often at home so that they become quick and confident at recalling them. Children can continue to change their reading books regularly once they have been read to an adult. Please try to read regularly at home and record a short comment in your child’s reading record. Logins for online maths games are stuck into the children’s reading records.
For the first few weeks of Term 6 the children will continue to get a weekly homework task that will either have a Maths or an English focus. They will be given their homework on a Friday and it must be completed and returned to school the following Wednesday. Later in the term we will set a creative homework which will last a few weeks.
It is really important the children practise reading and spelling the Year 1 and 2 exception words. You should have received a highlighted sheet of exception words indicating the ones your child needs to practise a little more.
In preparation for Year 3, this term the children can bring a maximum of 50p each day to buy snacks from the tuck shop during morning playtime.
This term, our PE days will continue on the following days.
- 2DS – Tuesday
- 2L – Wednesday
- 2R – Thursday.
As always, please remember to name all items of clothing including PE kits, school uniform and coats!
Other events taking place this term include:
- Sports day – 21st June
- Geography Adventure Day
- Class swaps
As a proud ‘Rights Respecting School’ we learn about the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). Our class charters set out what both adults and children must do to ensure children can enjoy their rights.
