Year 2 (Honeygold) 2022 - 2023

Ms Deen


Welcome to Year 2! 

The children have had a great term and we are looking forward to the summer term!

A short overview for the first part of the Summer term is below.

We are starting a new and exciting topic this term - Margnificent Monarchs! We will learning about the history of the Monachy.  They will learn abput teh English and British monarchy from AD871 to teh present day. Using timelines, information about royal palaces, portraits and other sources, they build up an understadning of the monarchy. 

We will be reading 'The Magic Finger' by Roald Dahl. The children will participate in different writing activities such as using similes to describe a character, using expanded noun sentences when retelling and using persuasive wrting. 

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.

In Maths we will learning about fractions. The children will be introduced to parts and wholes. They will be able to identofy a half and quarter with shapes and numbers. 

Our topic this half term is 'Animal Survival.'  The children will learn about growth in animals by exploring the life cycles of some familiar animals. They build on learning about the survival of human by identifying the basic needs of animal survival including food, water, air and shelter. 

Religious Education
We are learning about Islam. 

We will be learning how to play tennis and dodgeball. The children will learn all the neccessary skills to order to play a game and in a team. 


Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be returned by the followng Thursday. Reading books are given out every Friday as well and should be returned the following Thursday.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
