Year 2 (Honeygold) 2022 - 2023
Dear parents and guardians,
Welcome back to Year2! I hope you all had a lovely summer with your children.
I have been very impressed with the children and they have settled in very quickly.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursday afternoon. The children can come to sschool wearing their PE kits and please remove all jewellery on PE days.
Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be turned the following Wednesday. They will also be given spellings to learn at home. If your child finds this to be too challenging, please read the words to your child and discuss the meanings.
A short overview for the first part of Autumn term is below.
Movers and Shakers (History)
We are starting a new and exciting topic this half term - Movers and Shakers! We will be learning about people from the past who have made a significant difference.
We have been looking at 'grandad's Island' and the children have been producing some fantastic peices of writing. This half term we will also be reading 'Traction Man.'
Reading is vital in Year 2 and so this term. We will focus on reading skills which I encourage you to mirror at home. Below are some questions you could ask to support your child with their reading at home.
Predicting - What will happen next? What could this story be about? What might the character say next and why?
Retrieving - Which word was used to describe the character? Where is the story set?
Sequencing - What happened at the beginning of the story? What happened at the end of the story? Can you summarise the story?
Vocabulary - What is another word for 'big'? How else could the author describe the main character? How can we figure out the meaning of the word...?
Inference - How do you know the character is feeling sad? What clues tell us the character is happy? Look at the image, what can we infer about the character?
I encourage you to read at home as much as possible and, where possible, ask key questions to ensure the children understand what they have read. Please ensure you note down when your child has read a book in their reading record.
We will start this term by looking at place value, becoming familiar with tens and ones and partitioning numbers. It is very important that children are secure with place value before we can move on to addition and subtraction.
Our topic this half term is 'Human Survival.' We will be looking at the human life cycle and what humans need to survive.
We are learning about Christianity.
We are looking at ball skils this term.
