Welcome to Year 2!
Mrs Backhouse and Mrs Dixon (Y2B)
Our topic for Autumn 1 is 'Our Fragile World'. Within English, we are reading the story "Gorilla" and completing work based on this text. Please encourage your child to do their own research into areas they are particularly interested in, alongside the class curriculum homework tasks which can be found below.
P.E is on a Friday morning for Y2B. Please make sure your child has their P.E kit which includes a red top, black shorts and plimsoles. Forest School is on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your child comes in dressed in their kit, which should be appropriate for the weather and that they have their uniform in their bags to change into.
Please send book bags in every day even if your child has not finished reading their book and if your child has read their book, please can you comment on what they did well and what they might need support on so we can work on this at school. Whilst listening to your children read, it is important to ask them questions about the text to show their understanding of what they have read.
Spellings are sent home every Monday, ready to be tested on the Friday. Please support your child with learning these and if you would like to learn any extra spellings, please see the Year 2 Common Exception Words below.
Times Tables (10x, 2x, 5x, 3x) are to be practised at home alongside reading and spellings.
If you have any questions, please leave an email at the bottom of this page and I will get back with you as soon as I can.
