Year 2

Year 2 Summer Term

Welcome to our final term of Year 2!


First, a reminder about housekeeping, lots of children's uniform and PE kits still do NOT have names in and it is making it very difficult to find misplaced uniform.  I have several unclaimed jumpers and cardigans in class so if you think you are missing any, please ask to look through what I have got.  


For our Topic work this half term, we have a History and Geography based topic called Magical Mapping.  This will teach Year 2 to develop key map skills through a range of engaging geographical skills based activities. Children will explore a range of maps at a local, national and global level, developing their understanding of how to navigate around an atlas to find key countries, continents, oceans and seas along with devising their own maps and routes. Have a look at our knowledge organiser for more information.


We will be working hard to learn many key concepts in English and Maths. In English, we will be writing different genres based on our English text Mungo together with working hard on data and statistics in Maths.


Reading is a crucial part of your child's learning so please make sure that you read daily with your child and ensure they learn their spelling homework.  Additional phonics videos to watch will also be sent home via class dojo for children who are still on the RWI programme. 


Year 2 have a P.E lesson on Monday afternoon, so please make sure your child has the correct PE kit and ensure all items are labelled with your child’s name.  


Please also make sure you child has a water bottle in school each day so they can stay hydrated!


If you need to speak to us regarding any issues, our door is always open.


Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Howarth & Miss Brown
