Welcome to Year Two
Meet the Teaching Staff
Our names are Miss Hawkins in Major Oak class and Mrs Cox in Robin Hood class and we are lucky enough to teach Year 2. We also work alongside Mrs Glover and Mrs Fletcher.
Autumn 1 Overview
This half term the children will be learning about Britain. We will be looking at maps to locate the countries and capital cities. As well as this we will be looking at British traditions, landmarks and the Royal Family.
In English, we will be looking at story writing and instructional writing, using Paddington Bear as a stimulus.
In Maths, we will be focussing on place value, addition and subtraction.
In Science, we will be identifying and comparing things that are alive, dead and things that have never been living.
In Art, the children will be sketching different British landmarks.
Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary and this can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as the children are rewarded for the reading that they do, as you will have seen in the letter about the reading challenge dated 8.9.17.
AUTUMN 1 HOMEWORK
Please click on the link to view our homework for this half term. In addition to the Bingo Homework, we would like the children to practise the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables as well as learn the Year 1 and 2 spellings in the children’s reading diaries.
PE is every Tuesday and Thursday. We ask the children to bring kit suitable for indoor and outdoor sessions. Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly named. This should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
As teachers, we know that what may seem a little problem to an adult, can be a massive problem to a child – so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child!
