Summer 2

 “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’ ” Matthew 19:14

Reading at home

In Year 2, your child will be given a reading day. On your child's reading day, they will need to bring their reading record and reading book into school. Each child will read with an adult and a new reading book will be provided. 

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, or kindle books to instructions for a board game. Remember we also have our online eBooks available through RWI Oxford Owls. 

Maths

Fractions & Statistics

This half term we will be learning about Fractions. It is important that the children develop these basic Mathematical skills in order to progress through the Year 2 curriculum. Year 2 are also encouraged to use TTRockstars to increase their fluency with basic Mathematic skills. You only need to play 5mins!

Please ensure your children are continuing to access their TT Rockstars account through the app/website.

English

Book: Tidy by Emily Gravett
Poem: Father and I in the Woods by David McCord

In English we will be looking at a range of texts throughout the year. We will base our English writing around these texts. The next text we will be reading is Tidy by Emily Gravett and we will explore the poem Father and I in the Woods by Davis McCord. We will be looking at narratives and creating our own stories with interesting characters and settings.  

Science

In Science this year, we will revisit and learn (spiral curriculum) new themes each week. We have some great topics this year which are listed below. 

Biology- Animals including Humans, Living things and their Habitats and Plants.

Chemistry- Everyday Materials

Physics- Seasonal Changes

History

Would you like to be an explorer?

We will be looking back at famous explorers and the discoveries they found. Do you know of any famous explorers? If you could explore anywhere in the world where would you go? We will think about the things an explorer might need to stay safe on their adventures!

Geography

If you live at the seaside, what would you see?

We will be putting all of our knowledge so far this year of continents and oceans to think about the different seas and coastlines within the UK and worldwide. Have you ever visited a coastline? What could you see? 

Art & Design

Anthony Gormley (Sculpture)

In Art this term we will be looking at the work of Anthony Gormley. Did you know he has made lots of famous sculptures that are displayed around the UK. Can you research some of his work? We will be using his pieces to inspire our own final pieces. I wonder what you will make?

Design & Technology

Nutrition

In this topic we will be exploring nutrition and hygiene. We will research some fruits and vegatables and maybe even get to try some. We will make a plan to create a fruit salad or a smoothie and make our delicious treat to share with our friends and families. 

R.E

What is the ‘good news’ Christians believe Jesus brings?

This term we will be thinking about Jesus and the messages he shared with Christians. Do you know of any stories from the Bible? Can you remember what happened after Easter Sunday?

P.E

Our P.E. days this term are Monday and Friday.

Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their full school uniform and bring their full PE kit in a drawstring bag.  

Water bottles & snacks

Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day – the children need to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.

Children can purchase breadsticks at the start of each half term (see Miss Brown in the school office) or bring a healthy snack for break time.
