Year 2

 
Welcome to the Year 2 page!

We are continuing our topic of 'Out of Africa' into Spring 2. We will begin the half term with an exciting visit to Drusillas where we will learn about some African animals and even have the opportunity to handle some! We will continue to become African animal experts, looking specifically at habitats and food chains and we will also be studying the life and accomplishments of Nelson Mandela.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office or face to face when collecting your child.

The Year 2 Team - Miss Bridgman, Miss Otter and Miss Townsend


Additional Information:

SATS meeting for parents

Our KS1 SATS meeting has been cancelled next week (23.03 and 24.03). Please find the meeting presentation here and a handout too. 

Reading

Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage.  We ask that you and your child read four times each week and note this in their Reading Record.  These will be checked weekly and should be brought to school each day.

Spellings

A list of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that your child is expected to read and write by the end of year can be found here.

Mental Maths
 
You can help your child by helping them to learn their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication and division tables.
There are also some great websites for supporting our work in class on money and time. Click here for a toy shop game where you can pay for items and calculate change using mixed coins. Click here for a time game where you can practise reading times to the hour, half hour, quarter hour and to the nearest five minutes.
