The children will be learning about Ameila Earhart. She was the first female to fly across the Atlantic ocean. She was a person who displayed a lot of resilience to achieve the success that she did.

Each week the teachers will nominate one child that they have noticed showing positivity or the respect focus. These children will be known as our ‘Learning Heroes’. They will receive a special certificate in assembly and will have their picture displayed on the wall.

During the first week back at school the children will discuss their own roles and responsibilities with regards to their behaviour and conduct in school. It has been a very positive way to continue the school year with the children keen to follow their charters and stay in the positive behaviour zones.

We will be learning about how to look after our mental health in lots of different ways.

We’re taking steps to be Healthy: Inside and OutPlace2Be is encouraging children, young people and adults to look after their bodies and their minds – and you can join in!

It doesn’t have to be difficult. Our bodies and minds are connected, so simple things that we do to improve our physical wellbeing can help our mental wellbeing too.

How can you help at home?

Encourage your children to read as much as possible. Children will be bringing their home reading books home daily. Please read with your child and discuss the story as you do. There are a set of reding question that you can download below.  If you would like suggestions of other books that you could read with your child please look at the recommended reading list below. 

Maths

Our maths focus this half term will be place value and number. We are looking forward to this challenge! 

History

The children will also be learning about the world transport from the 1930's.
 

Homework

Every Friday the children in Year 2 will be given spelling/grammar homework.  This homework must be returned by the following Wednesday. There will also be optional online homework on My Maths. The children will be given a password for this once they have been shown how to use it in school.

Reading

We would encourage children in year 2 to read every day and suggest that reading is a minimum of 4 times during the week. The children can change their books every day and we would ask that parents make a comment and sign their reading record books to communicate with the teacher. Teachers will check and sign reading record books once a week. Each week there is a space for the children to make a comment on what they have read. Some suggestions would be:

  • What has been your favourite story this week? why?
  • Describe one of the characters.
  • Draw a picture of your favourite part of the story.
  • Write down any unusual or tricky words that you have learnt this week.
  • Non-fiction - Write down an interesting fact from your book.
