Year 2 Autumn Newsletter 2019


Welcome back to school and our autumn newsletter.

Welcome back to another jam packed school year where I am looking forward to getting to know you all. This is a new school year and that means new school uniform. Please make sure your child’s uniform has their name clearly labelled in it just in case any of it is mislaid.

 Year 2 have started off brilliantly so far and I am very impressed with all the children. We have begun our new topic ‘The Great Fire of London'. The children will be going back in time to 1666 and learning all about the fire, where it started and the people involved. I am sure they will be coming home with some amazing facts for you.

We are working hard to learn lots of new concepts in English and Maths. We will be writing a narrative and a newspaper report this half term and working hard on our number and place value work in Maths. Please read daily with your child and ensure they learn their spellings and do their homework over the weekend.

Year 2 are very lucky this term as we have the sports coaches to teach our P.E lessons on a Tuesday morning, so please make sure your child has the correct PE kit; black shorts, white t-shirt and pumps and that all items of PE kit are labelled with your child’s name. Again this makes finding misplaced items a little easier although we are encouraging the children to take extra care of their property. Not only do we have specialist P.E teachers but we are also lucky enough to have a specialist ICT teacher teaching us on a Tuesday, these lessons are brilliant and the children get so much out of them.

In Autumn 2 our topic is ‘Travel and Transport.’ The children will be learning lots about every mode of transport including the invention of the train, the first rocket into space and at how cars have changed through history. Hopefully this topic will involve a trip to enhance the children’s learning

We have a very exciting term to look forward to. If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, my door is always open.
