Year 2

Welcome to Year 2 


We are all having a great time this year and learning lots of new things!! 


Our topic for the first half term is Living Things. We are learning about animals and their habitats, food chains and lifecycles. We are also learning about plants, and we will be planting our own seeds, and we will watch them grow. We will think about humans and how to look after ourselves and stay healthy.


We have P.E on a Monday and children should be coming to school in P.E kit (please see school uniform guidance). 


Reading books will be changed when they are signed and returned to school. Children should be reading at least 3 times a week and each time the book should be signed separately.


All children have a basic knowledge wallet which they should be practicing at home. This wallet contains their spellings and number facts that they need to learn. This wallet should be returned to school every day for the children to use from 8:45 to 9:00. 


In the reading record is a login sheet which gives login details for Bug Club (active learn) and TTRockstars/Numbots.


Homework will given out on Friday and will be expected back by the following Friday. They will have a piece of English work and some maths.
