We wish your children every success in the year ahead. Please feel free to come and see us with any concerns that you may have.
Homework in Year 2 will focus on English, Spelling and Mathematics as well as regular reading, all of which are quite informal.
English: Tasks may support the teaching of grammar and punctuation, or relate to the topic.
Spelling: Your child will be given spellings weekly alongside a fun strategy to help learn them.
Reading: Children are encouraged to take home a book to share with parents/carers for about ten minutes each evening. As an alternative, children can research and read information relating to topic work.
Maths: Homework will be given out each Friday, to be handed in by the next Thursday.
Please ensure that your child’s P.E. kit is clearly named and brought into school at the beginning of the week. We will have two sessions per week.
The class teachers have Planning and Assessment time on a Wednesday afternoon. During this time Mrs Blackman, Mr Alcock and Mrs Clare will teach a foundation subject.
We will be looking at contrasting hot and cold countries. Towards half term we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We will also be having a visit from the local Fire Brigade to learn about fire safety. Investigating the fire triangle and ice balloons in Science is great fun.
Year 2 enjoyed holding their own Great Fire of Lindfield. The fire supported our learning about the Great Fire of London and helped the children write some excellent, descriptive diary entries.
In this term we will be looking at traditional tales about castles and dragons and learning about reptiles! We will be visiting a castle and learning about life in the past. A visit from a few reptiles is always exciting!
In the summer, we will be learning about sea creatures and the seaside, past and present. We enjoy a trip to the beach and make our very own lighthouses.
Year 2 had a fantastic day at the Sea Life Centre (despite the thundery showers) and a ride on the world's oldest operating electric railway. The children are creating some informative leaflets about the Sea Life Centre using all the knowledge they gained from the trip.
