End of Year 2 Objectives
These are the objectives that we aim to meet by the end of Year 2 for the key areas.
Autumn Term 2021
We hope you all had a lovely summer break!
We are looking forward to the new term and all of the exciting work we will be doing!
I would just like to remind you that children must have their diaries in school every day, and should be bringing in homework, PE kit and Forest School clothes on the appropriate days.
Topics this half term
Our first topic is “All About Me” in which we will be learning about the human body, the senses, how to look after our health and the human life cycle. We will also be looking at the art work of Pablo Picasso.
After half-term we will be looking at “The Gunpowder Plot”, focusing on the timeline of events, the location, the people involved, and what they wanted to achieve and why. Part of this half-term will include our involvement in the Christmas Nativity.
Please make sure that you read with your child at least 4 times per week. 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 every Friday.
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, children will be taking part in P.E. sessions. Please make sure that your child is wearing the appropriate, labelled kit on this day!
Forest school will take place on Friday afternoons. Though we are trying to limit the amount of belongings brought in from home, your child must bring in a pair of wellies with their name on in order to participate in the Forest School sessions. If they wish, they may bring in some over trousers and other waterproofs which can be worn over the top of the school uniform, along with scarves, gloves and hats in the colder months.
Homework this year will be given out on Mondays via a paper copy or via Class Dojo depending on the task. This needs to be completed to the best of your child's abilities - the homework intends to revise work already completed in lessons but if your child needs support or guidance please show this in a different colour where possible! Feel free to make any notes on it so that we know how to support them further in their learning of the topic. The completed homework will then need to be submitted to school on the following Monday or via scanning or taking a picture, and uploading this to Class Dojo (depending on the homework.)
In Year 2, children need to know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables! Please try and practise 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!
The end of Key Stage One SATs are scheduled to take place in May 2022. More information will follow at a later date. Please don't worry!
HOME LEARNING LINKS!
As this is a SATs year at school, it's important to keep learning and revising what we've learned, particularly if you are unable to attend school. Below are some of our favourite links we recommend to support learning at home.
