Year 2 Spring Term
Welcome to Spring term! I hope you had a lovely half term break and feel refreshed and ready to learn.
There is so much to be getting on with this term; we will be keeping you very busy!
First, a little bit of 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 Geography based topic called Amazing Africa. This will teach Year 2 about the geography of Kenya through focusing on the main human and physical features of the country. Children will learn about the key geographical features of the country including Kenyan wildlife, landscapes and culture. Children will learn about the similarities and differences between Kenya and the UK along with continuing to develop their geographical skills through a variety of fun and interactive activities. We will also look at African art, music and dance.
We will be working hard to learn many key concepts in English and Maths. In English, we will be writing a letter, setting description and story based on Meerkat mail together with working hard on division & measure 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 Tuesday 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 and Miss Davies
