Welcome to Year 2!

Class teachers: Ms Cartmill and Miss Driver

Please see below for key information and documents (newsletters, expectations of year 2 children, topic overviews). 


Thank you for supporting your children with and coming to watch...

The children may bring their projects into school over the half term but we will share all of the children's homework projects in class on TUESDAY 18TH DECEMBER.  
 

English

This week we have begun learning about Information Texts. We are focusing on the main features (heading, sub-headings, pictures and captions), as well as trying to use conjunctions (and, so, if, that, because, when, but).

We have also added a new challenge to our 

 

  • Writing on the line
  • Using finger spaces
  • Using SMALL full stops
  • Using top to bottom capitals
  • Starting each letter on the line (using lead in lines)

To help your child start/practise using lead in lines, please see the sheet attached below.


Maths

Over the last week we have been practising using tables, with sticks and dots, to add and subtract. Please see below examples of how to use the expanded column method to add.

 

We have also started to learn about money, focusing on the value of each coin and making amounts with them. Please practise this with your children at home - let them see inside your purse, let them pay for things at the shop, role play shop keeper and customer.
