Year 2 Curriculum Map - an overview of the Year 2 curriculum

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Happy New Year! welcome back to what promises to be a very exciting Spring Term!  Keep checking this page and make sure you are up to date with any news and photos of our fun learning!

 

Welcome to Miss Attfield and Miss Diplock who will be working in our class until just before Easter, the children have already been working brilliantly with them this week!

 

Every Monday children will receive a new set of spellings to be learnt that week.  They will be tested every Monday.  Even though this is changed weekly, it is extremely important that you continue to remind your child of previous learning. 

 

Children should be reading daily for 10 - 15 minutes with an adult or independently.  They will be given time every day to change their home book and will read at least once a week with an adult in school.  Yellow reading records should be signed every time a child is read with.

 

PE is on a Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure that the children have their PE kit in school for these days. During winter it is recommended that children have a pair of jogging bottoms as it can be a bit chilly outside!

 

Thank you for all of your support so far this year! I am really looking forward to another excellent term ahead!

This term we are joining Key Stage 2 in working towards Rock Legend Status in 'Times Table Rockstars'. There will be opportunities in school for children to use this fantastic resource, but we ask that everyone encourages their children to use it at home regularly through the week. We start this term with a big focus on multiplication and division and how they relate to each other. Times Tables Rockstars offers a wonderful way for the children to apply what they are learning in class in a fun and engaging way.

 

I will send out passwords again at the start of term. If you need any reminder about how to access this resource at home, please speak to Mr De Marco.

 

Thank you to all those who have been using our 'trial period' last term so well. This term, we will begin to reward regular users and high achievers in Friday's celebration assemblies! Rock on!

 

 

 Weekly practise sheet.

 

Each week, we will giving children the chance to complete this sheet and improve their score/time. If you'd like to print it off and practise at home, that would be brilliant. You'll find it below.
