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 Fletcher, Mrs Jones, Mrs Glover and Mr Unwin.
Please click on the link below to read more information about Year 2 as well as the expectations for English and Maths.
Autumn 2 Overview
This half term the children will be learning about The Great Fire of London. We will be learning about when, where and how the fire started. We will also be comparing what life was like in 1666 with today and how this event has changed fire safety for the better.
In English, we will be focussing on non-fiction linked to The Great Fire of London. We will be looking at recounts and diary entries as well as information texts linked to fire safety.
In Maths, our number focus will be linked to multiplication and division. As well as this we will be learning more about time, money, fractions and data handling. Please continue to encourage your child to use Doodlemaths regularly. Occasionally we will be setting tasks for your child to do at home that link to the work we have been covering in school.
In Art and Design, the children will be creating some skyline pictures of the Great Fire as well as making some clay items to go into our class bakery.
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays this half term. The children will be doing multi-skills with Mr Unwin as well as some Great Fire of London dance! Please ensure earrings are removed and children have indoor and outdoor kit in school at all times.
Please continue to record in your child’s school diary when they have read to be in with a chance of receiving certificates and a prize at the end of term. This term the challenge is 90 reads between 05.09.18 and 07.12.18.
This can also be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers and they will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day.
AUTUMN 2 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 spellings that are put in the children’s reading diaries on a weekly basis.
For this term, the weekly spellings are as follows:
PE is every Monday 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!
