18/03/19 - We had a fantastic science week last week! We spent all morning carrying out an investigation on how to create the strongest bridge for a castle.

25/02/19 Today we started our new topic 'Kings and Queens'. We organised ourselves from oldest to youngest to find out who our King and Queen would be. We also created a chronological timeline of events from 1400's to present day!

Spring 1

 

We have loved our 'Weather' topic this half term. We have learnt so much about seasons and different weather patterns. We have also had great fun in Science creating our own cloud in a jar and learning how to make different shadows. Also, in DT we designed and made our own kites and enjoyed testing them out! 

We loved beginning our new topic 'Florence Nightingale' this week. Look at how much fun we had creating Scutari Hospital!

How can you help your child at home?

 

Reading at home

How can you help your child with reading at home? 

We hope that you are able to read with your child as regularly as possible and record any comments in their yellow log. Also encouraging your child to read at least four times a week to take part in our reading challenge competition!

 

Maths at home           

In Year 2 we spend time practising addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and missing number problems. At home you could support your child by giving them various calculation sentences. Find an example of arithmetic papers on our home learning page. This is what your child will practise in school.

 

By the end of Year 2 we aim for children to be secure with their 2x, 5x and 10x tables. You could use these websites below to practise these.

You could also use mathletics to practise all other areas of maths!

Phonics

We build on the phonics learning your child has learnt in Year 1. You could use the websites below to practise their phonemes.
