This term in year 2...
We will be learning how to write instructions. We will learn all about imperative (bossy) verbs and how to use them in our own instructions.
We will be working on learning to read and spell the year 2 common exception words. Your child will not be tested on these but it would be helpful if they could practise them at home too. Spelling tests will start in the Spring term.
We will be learning all about money. Including recognising coins and notes, counting and comparing money, finding the total and difference between two amounts of money and solving word problems.
Our first topic is Art. We will be developing our drawing skills, learning how to make a printing block and finding out about Edward Munch and his famous artwork 'The scream'.
We are continuing to work on developing our basic skills including logging on using a username, using word to create documents and saving and opening documents.
Friday 13th November
Our PE day is Tuesday and children should come to school in their PE kit (a plain t-shirt and plain shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms), school jumpers or cardigans and their school shoes. They will need to bring their PE pumps in a bag which they will change in to when it is their PE lesson.
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child's reading book is in school on these days.
Homework will go home on Friday and should be returned by the following Friday. Children will have two homework books which will be given out on alternate weeks.
