Happy New Year!

Autumn 2

Welcome to the second half term of Year 2. The children have settled down really well and are well into the swing of things in class. We have had a busy last half term and the children are well along with their learning. We appreciate the support we have had from parents and if you could continue listening to your children read, helping them with their homework, letting them practise on Spelling Shed and Maths Shed etc, we would be very grateful. Children make the best progress when home and school work together.

This half term in English, we will be completing our Power of Reading unit on The Lonely Beast and then starting a unit looking at instructions. The specific focus will be on recipes and we will be sending a request for favourite recipes from home, so please be ready to share your family favourites!

In maths, we have begun learning about multiplication and division, particularly focused on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We are continuing to build our addition and subtraction skills. Our KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) for the half term are doubles and halves to 20. Please help your child practise these - knowing them off by heart really helps to improve their calculating speed.

We will be preparing a simple Christmas production through this half term, which will be videoed and shared with parents towards the end of term. We had hoped to have audiences in, but Covid numbers are so high that it makes it impossible.

In History, we will be learning about the history of transport, with a particular focus on the First Flight by the Wright Brothers. The knowledge mat for this is below. If you get chance, please talk about it with your child to help embed the historical knowledge.

In PSHE, our new topic is Be Positive, and we will be finding out ways to think positively and how to deal with negative emotions in a constructive way.

We have forest activities on Thursday 18th November and Thursday 25th November. Please make sure your child comes well wrapped up on those days - warm coat, hat and gloves; as well as bringing wellies in a carrier bag (we don't want children to stay in muddy wellies all day).

We have a maths themed dress up day for Children in Need on Friday 12th November. 

Anti-bullying week is 15-19th November and we will be doing activities related to this in our PSHE lessons.
