Dear Parents/Carers and Year 2 children,

We hope you all had an enjoyable half term and got up to lots of fun and interesting things.  As a team we are really looking forward to the rest of the term ahead with lots of fun and learning along the way.

The team consists of Mr Smith in 2BS (who taught in Year 2 last year), Mr Steels in 2JS (who taught in Year 4 last year), Mrs Mulla, Mrs Reed, Mrs Fisher and Mrs Dockery, as well as Miss Cairns who will work across both classes as our learning mentor. Please feel free to come and speak with us at anything with any questions, suggestions or concerns- we are always willing to listen and help in any way we can.

In English this half term we will be reading The Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith, and using the book to write a report about an animal.

Please do feel free to get in touch if you need to.

All the best,

Mr Smith, Mr Steels and the rest of the Year 2 team.

Our Topic this half term is:

Topic

Our Topic this half term is Autumn Story. We will be looking at the season of Autumn and how it affects plants and animals.

Why not try - 

  • asking your family what their favourite thing about Autumn is

  • take a photo or draw a picture of a tree as it changes

  • find out about animals that migrate for the winter

  • make an artwork using clourful leaves

  • find out about which animals hibernate

Maths

In Maths this half term we will look at Addition, Subtraction and Multiplication. We will learn about different methods to add, subtract and multiply. We will learn how to do this mentally, with resources and with formal written methods. In Multiplication we will continue to use our times tables for 2x 5x and 10x. Please help your child to practise by testing them on 2s, 5s and 10s.

Homework will be set weekly for Maths using the MyMaths website. We will aim to set work which helps the children be ready for the next week of learning so the best time to do homework is at the weekend or as early in the week as possible.
