Welcome to year 2!
For the second Spring half term 2JE will be doing forest schools on a Wednesday afternoon. Please can you ensure that your child has warm outdoor clothes as we will be out in all types of weather.
Our Spring 2 topic is going to be looking at Kenya. We are going to look at how life might be different in Kenya compared to our own lives. We are going to look at the animals that live in the country and what it might be like going to school there. We are going to also look at people’s initial ideas about Kenya before they know anything about the place.
Over the next couple of weeks we will be looking at writing an advert. We will be designing our own sweet/invention and then writing an exciting advert to try and sell out sweets.
For the next two weeks we are going to be looking at 2d shapes. We are starting off with sorting different 2d shapes and identifying the different properties of 2d shapes. We will move on to talking about lines of symmetry and identifying them in a 2d shape.
Spellings will be given on a Monday and tested on the following Monday. This year we will be testing spellings based on the spelling appendices found in the National Curriculum for year 2. A copy of the most recent spellings can be found beneath. Please help your child to learn these spellings. It would be great if your child could find any other words that follow the weeks focus. We will also go through the spellings during lesson times.
Each week your child will be getting homework. The homework will be handed out on a Friday and is expected back in on the following Wednesday. Each week the homework will consist of work from either a maths or English workbook. The homework will be one or two pages from the book. As well as this we would like you to spend time reading with your child and doing some maths. The maths could consist of learning times tables (expectations by the end of year 2 is for your child to know 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables) or counting forwards and backwards below 100 in different sized steps starting from different places.
Homework 23.3.18: This week the homework will be from the maths mental workout pages 13 and 14.
