Welcome back to Term 2
We have a busy, exciting term ahead and we can't wait to get started!
In Literacy, we will be learning about lots of important historical events including; The Gunpowder Plot, Remembrance Day and WW1.
In Maths we will continue our learning of addition and subtraction before moving on to shape and money.
In Topic we will learn about the life of Mary Seacole and discover how she helped people during the Crimean War.
As always we will be encouraging the children to read at home every day to boost their reading stamina.
Remember to keep practicing your your Spelling Bee and Times Tables.
Before we know it Christmas will be upon us so we will be finishing the term by reading the Grinch, learning the Nativity story and of course performing a range of Christmas carols.
Well done Woodpeckers and Flamingos for reaching the end of Term 1!
We have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you over these past few weeks.
It has been fantastic watching you flex your Minster Muscles to meet all of the new and challenging expectations we have set for you this term.
We hope you all have a very well deserves half term and look forward to seeing all you return, recharged and ready to continue our Year 2 learning journey.
Welcome to Year 2!
We hope you have had a wonderful summer enjoying time with your family and making precious memories.
Over the next few weeks we are looking forward to getting to know you and finding out what you enjoy, your hobbies and how you learn best!
We will be studying the story of Hansel and Gretel in Literacy, the number system in Maths and in Topic we will find out why Eastchurch is such an important part of the history of flight in our country.
We will be building on the phonics knowledge you have already developed using the Monster Phonics scheme which you will also be able to access at home.
Each week you will be asked to learn your times tables ready for a multiplication test every Wednesday. Times Tables Rockstars is a fantastic way to practise! In Year 2, it is really important that you read at home 5 times each week. Most of you are now on AR so this will allow you to quiz at least 3 times a week.
All of your efforts will be rewarded on our weekly year group celebration assemblies.
Look out for the the welcome letter that will be coming home in Week 1 which will explain the Year 2 expectations in more detail.
We all look forward to a wonderful year!
