Year 2

Information for week beginning 18.10.21

Well done Year 2 for completing SATs ‘booklets’ and more importantly, earning your badges for your circus mission! We have had a fun week as we had our super visit from GEMS Circus Arts School (keep your eyes peeled for a website post!) and a treat afternoon on Friday! One week to go before a well deserved rest, go team 2!

Our Worship theme for the coming week is ‘ALWAYS THERE – Trusting God!

Matthew 28:20 I Will Be with You Always Even Unto the End of the World.

English

This week we are going to use our own experiences of being at the circus to plan and write our own stories. We will be specifically looking at capital letters, full stops and exclamation marks in our writing as these are skills we have recently covered in our GPS lessons.

Maths

In Maths, we are going to be focusing on reasoning! We will be looking at how to solve word problems for addition and subtraction, putting our termly work into a different context.

Phonics

This week we will be looking at oo, or, oa and ar digraphs! How many words can you find with these digraphs in your weekly reading?

Reading

Our whole class reading lessons will be based on an adventure story! We will be focusing on a different viper each day and finish the week with a comprehension task.

Home learning

Your child has been given our project overview and project home learning document which can also be found under ‘Related Learning’ on our Year Group page. Please come and speak to one of the Year 2 team if you have any questions. We have also set MyMaths tasks that will be linked directly to what your child has been learning in Maths, so it is a chance for your child to consolidate their classroom learning. Log in information has been sent home but if you have any problems accessing the website, please get in touch.

Reading Diaries 

Reading is something that we are very passionate about and we can’t wait to start handing out our raffle tickets for the children who have been reading 3 or more times a week. This can be reading their coloured band book, their Rocket Phonics book or even their favourite book from home or library. Please bring reading diaries into school everyday so that when they read to an adult we can write a comment to you about their progress and so we can update their books accordingly. Thank you for your support with this.

Times Table Rockstars 

This is a fantastic website that can be used as an additional tool to practise times tables in a fun and engaging way. We will initially set up the children on answering their 10 times tables and when we have seen that they are accurately answering these questions at speed, we will introduce the 2x tables and 5 x tables. We hope that by the end of year 2, the children will know these tables off by heart so using TTR is a great way to support this.
