Year 2

Wishing you all a Very Happy 2019


Well this term is going to be as busy as ever!


We are going to be learning all about Africa and the animals that live there in our topic ‘Let’s Go On Safari. We will be looking at the different animal habitats and also learning more about these in Science.. We are going on a fantastic trip to Blackpool Zoo where we will get to see some of the animals we will have been learning about.


Our English work will be a mixture of work on narratives, recounts and non-chronological reports with a little bit of poetry in there as well. At the moment the children are very excited to be working with a text called The Story Machine by Tom McLaughlin .


Maths will build on our previous learning with work on describing patterns involving number, calculations, mental strategies, and shape as well as some new learning of fractions, problem solving, multiplying, dividing and lots and lots of word problems.


PE sessions are still on Tuesdays. Please make sure that full P.E kits; black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps are left in school each week and both PE kit and all uniform is labelled with your child’s name.


Please also remember that Book bags should be in school every day.



Reading every night

Spellings and English go home on Friday. Children have to learn their spellings for the test on Friday

Maths homework will be set using Mathletics on line, which I will check weekly.



Year 2 will have SAT's this year so it is important to make sure that their homework is completed each week.
