Year 2

 
Welcome to the Year 2 page!

In Summer 1, we will be begin the term with an Art mini project called ‘Portraits and Poses’. This project teaches children about portraiture and we will analyse the portraits of Tudor monarchs and compare Tudor portraits and selfies today. We will use photo editing software in our Computing lessons to create royal portraits too. Our mini project this term will inspire some non-fiction writing about our favourite Tudor portraits, as well as writing about our own royal portraits which will be displayed in our Harbour, Lighthouse and Pier class Art galleries! 

 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office.

Additional Information:

 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 make a note of this in their reading diary. 

The children have enjoyed using Karate Cats, which is a great game for revising key reading, writing and Mathematic skills.

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

Don’t forget that your child can use Mathseeds to reinforce their Maths learning at home. The driving tests are great for practising their quick recall of number facts.
