Year 2 Newsletter Spring 2019
Following on from a successful and enjoyable Autumn term, we have got a busy and exciting Spring term ahead of us. First of all, we would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ for all of your help and support last term. It makes a huge difference to our learning in school.
This term, we have another new topic called ‘Heroes and Villains’ lined up. We have a number of key texts to explore within this topic, ranging from ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra to ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl. We will also be exploring materials in Science and design in D.T whilst creating superhero equipment. Within our SMSC lessons, we will be thinking about everyday heroes and people who help us. As always, we would like you all to be as involved as possible in the ‘learning journey’ so we will keep you informed of events and activities as and when they happen.
As before, we ask that you read at home with your child at least three times a week. This really does make a difference to children’s reading ability and their enjoyment of literature. We understand that this can be difficult on certain days but it is important to your child’s learning. Our Rainbow Reader scheme will continue as before. We would like to remind you that in Year 2, those children on our Accelerated Reader scheme can complete their quizzes and change their books first thing in the morning independently. They just need to head down the ICT suite with their reading book and reading diary and complete their quiz. If you have any questions about this, please do ask.
Your child is in into a Read Write Inc group and their weekly spellings will be given within this group. They are given out on a Monday to be tested the following Monday. We thank you for your support in learning these spellings.
PE day for both classes will continue to be Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has an appropriate P.E kit in school on Wednesdays. We do also ask that long hair is tied up and stud earrings are removed or taped over.
Once again, we would like to thank you for your continued help and support.
