Project (English & Topic): Land Ahoy!
Spring 1 was another fantastic and fun-filled half term exploring all about pirates through our 'Land Ahoy' topic. Once again, the children produced some incredible work, including writing fact files on famous pirates, creating their own maps as well as writing some very useful instructions for surviving on a desert island.
But wait, don't fear me hearties! There's still plenty more to discover about the wonderful world of pirates and so as a result we will continue our 'Land Ahoy' topic into Spring 2. Look out for more information about our showcase day where will be inviting parents/ carers in to show off all our hard work this term.
We will be having a very exciting pirate visitor on Monday 25th February. Children are once again invited to wear their pirate costumes. It's going to be a fun event.
World book day:
World book day is on the 7th March 2019. Keep your eyes peeled for more information. We cannot wait to see all your fantastic costumes.
This half term we will be furthering our work on fractions. By the end of Year 2 children should be able to recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/ 3 , 1/ 4 , 2/ 4 and 3/ 4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity write simple fractions, for example 1/ 2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/ 4 and 1/ 2. Help your child at home by practising what half or a quarter is of any even number between 0-20.
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 focusing on Easter and considering how the symbols help us to understand the story. Help your child at home by thinking about as many different symbols associated with Easter and considering the meaning behind them.
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."
- John 11:25-26.
Reading at Home:
Please encourage your child to read every night. May we also ask that you write a comment in your child’s reading record including the page they have read up to or if they have finished their book. Reading books and records are checked every morning and books are changed if completed.
As you are now aware, we have moved to weekly homework. Please continue to support your child with this. 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
We would like to take this opportunity to invite any parents and carers who missed our last SATs meeting to join us for an informal SATs update on Wednesday 20th March at 2:00pm. The purpose of the meeting is to inform you of the expectations of the children for their upcoming Year 2 SATs and how you can support your child at home. Feedback from parents has been that they have found it very useful so please try and attend where possible. Your support is greatly appreciated and really makes the difference to the progress your child makes.?
