Year 2

Update for Week beginning : 2.7.18

We are very excited about our Y2 trip to the Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park on Friday 6th July. We are still a little short on parent helpers so if you are able to help on the day please let us know asap! Please remember to ensure your child has sun cream, a hat and  water bottle – refer to letter previously sent out.

Maths and English Information:

In Maths the children will be learning about mathematical patterns and sequences, along with comparing different weights and lengths and handling data. The children will carry out a traffic survey, using a tally chart and then present their results using a block graph.

In English we will be looking at information leaflets and analysing the layout and key features of a variety of different ones. The children will then plan and create their own leaflet for Weymouth Sea Life Adventure park.

Project: 

Our final project in Year 2 is ” Under the Sea!” This promises to be great fun and involves a day trip to Weymouth Sealife Centre. You are warmly invited to this project outcome on Thursday 12th July @ 2:15pm, where the children will present their learning using power point and information fact sheets.

In our project lesson this week we will be looking at how animals obtain their food in a food chain. The children will learn about words such as consumer, producer, carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.

General Information:

My Maths homework has now been set for the half term.

IMPORTANT: Please note our P.E days have changed (see our year 2 timetable). Indoor P.E is on Monday morning and Outdoor Games is on Wednesday afternoon.

Please could you make sure your child has weather appropriate PE kit in school everyday. This should be clearly named so it doesn’t go missing. 

Please continue to ensure your child brings in a named water bottle, daily (with water only in, no juice). 

Please note: The Government have now updated the interim framework objectives for the end of KS1 (see link in related learning). This document was published on 14th September 2017 so please be aware that there have been some changes from the document we gave you at the meeting.

We have now put up the Maths calculation strategies document under related learning that we shared with parents during our Maths workshop a couple of weeks ago.
