Year 2

Update for Week beginning: Monday 15th July

It’s the final week before we break up! What a fantastic, fun-filled year we’ve had with your children! We’ve seen them grow and blossom this year, and we know that each one of them will be fantastic in Year 3. Next week we will be doing some transition tasks to get the children ready for next year; on Wednesday afternoon your child will meet their new teacher and spend the afternoon with them.

We hope you all have an amazing summer holidays and that your children enjoy a well-earned rest!

There will be no spellings this week. Please spend the summer revising the spellings in the back of your child’s home/school diary. 

Important notice:

As we are now reaching the end of half term, please could you return any library books from school which you may have at home.

Maths and English Information:

In maths this week we will be doing some problem solving using our knowledge of number.

The MyMaths homework tasks this half term are:

Week 1: Measures

Week 2: Adding number line

Week 3: Add 2 digit numbers

Week 4: Telling the time to 5 minutes

Week 5: Position and turning

Week 6: Modelling fractions of amounts

Week 7: Dividing

In English we will be writing about what makes us special, ready for transition into Year 3. We will also be consolidating phase 6 in phonics.

Other: This week PE will be on Monday and Tuesday.

Times tables: Your child has been given a log in for Times Tables Rockstars, which is a program where they can practise their times tables in a fun, engaging way. Please visit to log in and use the login details which have been stuck in your child’s home/school book.

General Information: It’s great to see so many of the Year 2 children join Mrs Jacobs on a Friday lunchtime in the library for Book Club. Please remember to return your library book on a Friday if you wish to choose a new one.

Please can you make sure that all items belonging to your child are clearly labelled so that they can be returned easily should they go missing.

Finally, please ensure your child has their Academy Home Diary in school every day.
