Project (English & Topic): Castles!
We are continuing to learn about castles in Summer 2. We will look at the features of castles and we will also be finding out about other types of structures, like bridges, tunnels and towers from around the world. We are going to be designing and building our own castles and buildings using different materials, and finding out how to make them stronger. .
Please help your child at home with our new topic; Shape, Data Handling and Graphs. The children
need to know the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and must be able to identify whether a shape is
symmetrical. We will also be revisiting our topic of calculations to ensure the children are fully
confident on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Don't forget to also keep practising your timetables. By the end of Year 2 children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables in and out of order.
PE will take place on a Wednesday and Thursday. If you wish to wash your child’s PE kit weekly they may take their kit home on a Wednesday night, however, they will need to bring them back into school ready for the following Thursday.
This half term in RE we will be thinking about the question, ‘What do Christians believe God is like?’ In this unit we will explore how Christians view God. We will be creating artwork using a variety of materials to show God comparing these to other Religions versions of how God is and looks.
Reading at Home:
A little reminder - Children are expected to bring their books in everyday so they can be heard read at any time. We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child, but do ask that you make every effort to read at least 5 times per week with them, and make a comment in their reading records. Reading at home doesn’t always mean their school reading books, it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, kindle books to instructions of a board game. Children who read 5 times a week all half term will win a prize.
Homework will continue to be given out once a week on a Friday and due to be handed in the following Friday. It is vital that these are completed as this is one of the best ways to support your child in the run up to SAT’s. We thoroughly enjoy looking at all your hard-work and wonderful creations. Children who do not complete their homework are now asked to attend homework club every Friday instead of Golden Time. If you need any support with completing tasks set then please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff.
Spag.com continues to be a huge success and the children are making rapid progress in Grammar. Well done Year 2 and keep up all your hard work. Remember to check each week for the new test set
Children have shown all the school values to make sure they tried their very best in completing their ‘special work’. Thank you for the support you have given them!
You will receive the assessment results towards the end of the Summer Term alongside the children’s end of year reports
