Year 2


Readathon! Thank you to all who participated in the Readathon this month. Many of our students got very excited and read many minutes! The PTA is now totalling minutes and pounds raised so stay tuned for the awards. 


Our new topic this term is Giants, Castles and Beanstalks. This topic will span all of summer term with more focus on castles in the second half of the term. Topic homework will be collected at the end of the term (not the half-term). So far, we have been innovating our own version of Jack and the Beanstalk and really delving into the mighty, wordy world of Roald Dahl in The BFG. Please ask your child to retell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk to you with the hand motions they have learned. 


**Phonics Folders**

Phonics folders (purple) are being taken home every day. Please use this opportunity to help your child practice their phonics for 5 minutes every night, e.g.; practice reading the words we have studied in class; practice writing the letter pattern and saying the phoneme (sound) at the same time; discuss which other digraphs (sets of letters) make the same phoneme (sound).

Please make sure phonics folders return to school every morning.


Weekly Talk Topic:

Have you encountered a giant in another story that you have read? Was that giant fierce like the giant in Jack in the Beanstalk or friendly like the giant in the BFG?
