Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 is a very important final year in Key Stage 1 and the children continue to develop their independent skills in preparation for Key Stage 2. This is also a crucial year as the children complete their Key Stage 1 national SATs assessments in May.

Welcome to the start of the Spring term! The children have already come back from Christmas ready to learn. We have lots to do but as always we will be making it all as fun as possible.
Our topic up to Easter is ‘The Wonderful World of Whispering Woods’. We will be going on a trip later in the term and finding out lots about the environments around us. This will link really well with our Geography and Science learning.
You can see from our ‘overview’ that we are planning to cover a lot in the next few weeks! Please help your child by discussing these topics and please say if there is any way that you can support us within the class.
*As always, hearing your child read is so important as this helps them to access the curriculum. Please also record in their reading diaries as this provide evidence at the end of the year. I expect the children to read at least 5 times a week.
*Please continue to practice the times tables with your child (2,5,10) and the related division facts. The children may occasionally bring home their multiplication check-up sheets which would give an idea of how to support your child.
*Support your child wherever possible with their handwriting – joined if possible.
*Help your child to learn their spellings (the Squeebles app is again great for this). They will have weekly spelling patterns but will also need to learn their Year 2 exception words.
*PE is on a Tuesday and a Thursday, please ensure your child has their kit in school at all times and that it is named.
As always, please pop in to see us if you are unsure of anything and we will do our best to help.
