Class Hawthorn

Year 2 Curriculum (click)- A guide on what your child needs to learn in Year 2 and how you can help.

Teacher: Miss Allen

TA Support: Mrs Samecki

Spring Term 2020 

Topics this half term

This half term we will be learning all about the 'Frozen Planet!' We will be looking at habitats of animals who live in the Arctic, where in the world this is and why it's so cold! After that we will be looking at where we live, and the '7 wonders of Nottingham'! 

 

Reading

Please make sure that you read with your child at least 4 times per week.  Your child can change their reading book as often as they wish.  Rewards are given at the end of each half term for children who read 4 times or more each week but this must be signed by an adult in reading diaries.  Reading diaries are checked each Friday.

 Every Tuesday, parents have been asked if they would like to join us until around 9:30am for a reading session! Feel free to join in if you're available!

P.E Kit

On Tuesdays children will be taking part in P.E. sessions.  On Tuesdays this will take place outdoors – please ensure your child has an outdoor P.E. kit in school!  On P.E. days children should come to school in their uniform as normal and they will get changed before and after their P.E lesson. 

Forest School -POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Forest school will take place on Friday afternoons.  Please make sure that kits are in school in a named bag and should include wellies and old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty!

Homework

Homework this year will be given out on Fridays, and should be handed in the following Friday. This should be completed to the child's best abilities! Please encourage work at home as much as possible to support learning in school.

Times Tables

In Year 2, children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables! Please try and practice this at home too. This could be counting steps in multiples while walking or going up the stairs, counting money or even just making a poster to have them displayed around the house!

 

USEFUL LINKS!
