In Year 2, we focus on developing our writing so that it is well structured and there is also a big focus on spelling correctly. Please look in the children's homework folders for a list of words that Year 2 children should be spelling correctly in their writing.
We also continue our daily phonics sessions to work on spelling strategies and we learn rules for adding prefixes and suffixes to words.
This year the children should become confident with their 2, 3, 5, and ten times tables. We will also work on adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers, multiplication and division (within 2, 3, 5 and 10 x tables), fractions, shape and measurement. Within measurement we will focus on time, money, length and height, weight and mass and capacity and volume.
We love reading bible stories in class and we try to understand the messages behind them. We will also continue to learn about Gospel values and the things we can do to follow them.
This year our science work will build on what the children learnt in Year 1 and we will develop our investigation skills, exploring how to work scientifically and carry out experiments! Look out for Discovery Dog in our classroom as he helps us to plan an investigation!
The children will continue to read each week with either myself or Mrs Wilson. This may sometimes be on a one-to-one basis or as part of a small group. We recommend that children read for 20 minutes at home each day as well to build up their fluency and expression.
Our focus will now be on comprehension of different texts and we will have daily reading comprehension activities in class.
If you would like to call in to listen to children read between 8:55 and 9:15am, please pop in to let us know.
If you have any questions or concerns please call in to see us either before or after school.
