Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to Year 2!

Our teachers are Miss Gwilliam and Mrs Thompson.

Our Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Forth and Mrs Wollacott.

Please check this web page for regular updates on exciting things happening in Year 2.

Our topic for the second half of the Summer term is all about Christopher Columbus and his explorations. We will be learning about the life of Christopher Columbus, and his dream to travel West across the Atlantic Ocean in order to reach China and India. We will consider what life was like on the three ships for the sailors, and we will locate the different countries Christopher Columbus came into contact with.  We will hopefully conclude the topic with Design and Technology, by designing and making our own ships.

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.
