Welcome to Year 2
Mrs Roberts, Mrs Milbourne and Miss Hayden
This half term
Our theme this term is called 'Fire! Fire!'.
calculate mathematical statements; understand commutativity; and solve problems using concrete, pictorial, written and mental methods. We we will then move into learning about fractions; children will learn to recognise, find, name and write simple fractions of objects and quantities; recognise equivalences between fractions. Finally we will learn about money. In this unit, children will begin to recognise units symbols (£, p); explore combinations of money; solve simple problems, including giving change.
For spellings, children should practise the words and rules which we are learning in class, you can find these on our weekly letter. The 6 speed spell words are from the Year 2 common exception words which we will be practising as much as we can all year.
For maths, children will have their Schofield and Sims books, which will be collected in and marked weekly.
There will also be a reading grid sent home with different tasks on, we ask that you choose 6 tasks to complete with your child – we will collect these in just before the half term holiday to have a look at all the wonderful learning you have been doing at home.
Resources are all provided for Year 2 children, they should not be bringing pencil cases to school.
Thank you for your continued support.
If you have any questions regarding any of the information above or regarding your child’s learning and progress, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me at the end of the day or alternatively make an appointment with the office.
