We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable summer break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the start of a new term. The children appear to be settling well in their new classes and are enthusiastic to make a start on their learning.

The autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 2. In English, we will be learning about stories with familiar settings while also concentrating on grammar, spelling and punctuation (GPS).  

In Maths, we will be recalling number bonds to 10, 20 and 100 while also securing children’s knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction. In Science, we will be studying ‘Materials’ and in Geography we will be learning about the countries of the UK and the 7 continents of the world. In Art, we will be creating an autumnal collage based on the work of Arcimboldo. After half term we will study transport through time in History and in DT we will be designing our own healthy fruit smoothie.

For more details about our learning this term please click on the Autumn Term Curriculum Overview.

PE sessions for Class 9 will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. Should you wish, PE kit and water bottles (20p) can be purchased from the school office. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.

Children in Year 2 receive regular homework. Spellings will be given out on Monday and tested on the following Monday. Children are still expected to complete their reading comprehension homework and questions are usually found inside the front cover of their reading book. Children should complete at least one comprehension per week. Children reading junior band books will be expected to complete a reading journal (examples will be stuck inside their comprehension book). Additional creative homework (purple book) will also be given out throughout the year.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
