Welcome to Year 2
We had a fantastic class trip to the brilliant National Mining Museum which engaged the children in our topic Street Detectives.
This half term we will continue to investigate the local area, looking at how it has changed and finding out about the mining history of Moorends.
In English, the children will be writing diaries, using them to develop and record their learning in topic. To ensure we are ready for KS1 assessments in May, the children will be working hard on developing fluency in reading and comprehension skills. To support your child, please listen to them read whenever possible. We will also be concentrating on improving spelling and your child will be bringing home a list of words to learn each week.
The focus in Maths is developing number skills, particularly in multiplication and division, problem solving and investigation. Each week your child will be asked to complete a times table activity to improve their recall of facts.
PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday – please ensure your child has the correct kit of black shorts, white T shirt and black pumps.
Please ensure your child brings their book bag to school everyday.
As the weather is very unpredictable at the moment please make sure your child has a coat in school. Unless the weather is exceptionally bad, they will go outside during the day and need to be dressed appropriately.
Thank you for your continued support.
