Year 2 Summer Newsletter

Welcome back to our final term of Year 2!

 Can you believe how fast Summer Term has come around?

In our topic work this half term we will be learning all about ‘Great Explorers’.  The second half term topic is one of my favourites –  Mapping School, Mottram and the World!‘ We will be reading and making maps, looking at aerial photos as well as discovering our favourite locations where we live!

Our English work is based on ‘The Dragon Machine‘  by Helen Ward. We will be writing our own stories based on this story.  Later in the summer term we will be looking at the very popular ‘Major Glad, Major Dizzy' by Jan Oke. 

Maths will build on our previous learning with work on securing number facts, understanding shape and some work on data handling, shape, measures, fractions, division and multiplication.

In science we will be finishing off Living Things and their Habitats. Then will we be investigating Plants!

P.E sessions will still take place on a Monday and Wednesday. Can I please ask that full P.E kits are left in school each week. The P.E kit is a white top, black shorts and black pumps preferably with velcro as the children really struggle to tie laces. Some children are coming with trainers etc. so please just double check that your child has the correct kit.

If there are any questions about this term, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you

Sean McCarthy / Mrs Andersson
