Year 2 Letters Home

Dear Parents,

We hope you had a lovely Easter and enjoyed a well-deserved rest. We are ready to start the final summer term and look forward to the fun learning opportunities ahead of us.

During this first half-term we will be learning all about ‘Habitats’ in Geography. This will involve identifying the human and natural features of woodland habitats and the animals that live there. We will also create our own local maps to carry out field work and follow directions, linking to our Maths learning.

In history our focus will be all about ‘Disney’. Over both half-terms, we shall be researching the life of Walt Disney, looking at the development of animation, music and technology and how this has changed what we see today. This will give children the opportunity to become their own imagineers and composers.

We will be exploring ‘The Seaside’ in the second half-term. We will look at the history of the seaside holiday, features of the beach and oceans around the world and puppets.

Our English will be linked to all geography and history units and include writing imaginative story and scripts as well as persuasive texts and we will be revising all areas of maths such as, time, place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, data handling, measurement, fractions, shape and problem solving to ensure a deeper understanding of these skills.

In RE, children will learn about the events after Easter and we will be having an Islamic week during the term.

PE days are still on Tuesdays and Fridays (Year 2 Yellow) and Mondays and Wednesdays (Year 2 Blue) and will focus on tennis and athletics and our home learning will carry on as normal; phonics and guided reading home learning given on a Monday ready to be returned the following Monday and a new menu sheet will be given to your child on the first week back. This can also be found on our school website.

Finally, we would love for you to join us at our class Masses on Thursday 2nd May and Thursday 13 th June . These start from 9:30am at The Holy Family Church.

We will continue to use class Dojo to regularly update you, so please check as often as you can.

As always, thank you for your continued support,

Miss Jackman and Miss Curson
