Year 2 Summer Newsletter

Welcome back to our final term of Year 2!

This half term is an extremely busy one for the children in year 2 as they complete their SATs in May.

In our topic work this half term we will be learning all about ‘Great Explorers’.  Next half term out topic is one of my favourites –  What makes Mottram great ?‘ 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 ‘Nibbles the Book Monster’. We will be writing our own stories based on this story.  Later in the summer term we will be looking at the very popular ‘Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates’. 

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

P.E sessions will still take place on a Tuesday 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
