I hope your child has settled into Year 2 nicely and is enjoying being back at school.
This year our PE lessons will now be every week on Tuesday morning so please ensure your child has their PE kit (fully labelled) each week.
Once again your child should be reading at least 3 times a week at home and their reading record either needs to be signed or commented on by an adult before a new book can be issued.
Homework each week will include maths, writing and spelling. Please try to allow your child to complete this independently and only support them if they are really struggling – particularly the writing! I would ask that if you do support or help your child to simply put an ‘S’ in the top right hand corner of their book so that I can see who needed help – this will help me to support them further in class.
Our main topics for the year are:
Autumn 1- All Around the World
Autumn 2- The Gunpowder Plot
Spring 1- China
Spring 2- The History of Flight
Summer 1- Amazing Australia
Summer 2-Intrepid Explorers
If you have any questions at any time please do not hesitate to come and ask. I am looking forward to an exciting and busy year with your child.
