Year 2

Week Beginning 4.9.18

Mrs Llewellyn, Mr Buckfield and Miss Welland


Welcome everyone to Year 2. We hope you had a lovely summer. 


The children have settled in well and are already getting to know their new learning environment and staff. 



"Meet The Teacher" on Tuesday 11th September at 4.00pm for Year 2 and 4.30pm for Year 3.

Please do let your child's class teacher know if you cannot attend and try to introduce yourself during the next couple of weeks.

This will be helpful if we are dismissing children at home time.



TOPIC: "Beginnings"

Our first topic in RE will be about How God Created the World.

Try to read this story from Genesis and discuss the words we will be using.


family, friends, creation, God, psalm, litany


ENGLISH: "Oliver's Vegetables"

We will be reading this story and asking the children to sequence the events and retell it in their own words.

Using drama skills they will have the opportunity to re-enact the theme and recall some of the vegetables in the story.


PHONICS- The children will revisit PHASE 5 of the Letters and Sounds scheme and then move on quite quickly to " Phonics into Spelling".



Reading: Each child in Year 2 received a new reading book. These will be changed weekly and the children will begin Guided Reading sessions within the class.  

If you child hasn't read much during the holidays, they may be given a book which is appropriate to their reading ability now. We will give them a chance to regain that confidence and review their reading on a regular basis. 



MATHS: Number and Place Value

In Maths next week the children will be reading and writing numbers in digits and in words.

They will be counting on a back and learning about the place value of each digit in a two/ three digit number.













P.E days
P.E days are as follows:- Wednesday and Friday
Please ensure your child has full PE kit in school by Monday 10th September 2018
