This term, our topic has a history focus. It is based on the history of transport, and our enquiry question is 'How has transport changed over time?' We hope to organise an educational visit linked with this - details will follow in due course. We aim to link our English work with the topic and will use rich, quality texts to support literacy activities. Our first text is 'Emma Jane's Aeroplane' by Katie Haworth and Daniel Rieley. In Science, children will be learning about the properties of materials and seasonal changes. More details about our curriculum can be found below.
Spelling homework will be issued each Friday and tested the following Friday.
Reading books will be sent home during the week of 6th September. Please ensure your child reads every day at home. If they come home with the same book, encourage your child to read fluently, with expression and ensure they understand what they have read by asking questions about the book.
Your child has now received a menu of home learning activities linked to our current history and space topics. Please read through this carefully and choose two activities that you would like to support your child with at home. Other homework linked to Maths and English will be issued occasionally.
Below are some useful resources to support your child's learning. These include some reading recommendations for Year 2 children.
This week's certificate was for concentration. Once again, it was really hard to choose as all the children have impressed us with their increasing levels of concentration. In the end, we chose Travis and Sienna, who are always ready to listen, learn and work their hardest. Well done!
Super Maths work from Year 2 this week. We recapped on numbers to 20 and explored representing them in different ways using Mathematical equipment.
This week we started our history of transport topic. During the lesson, we developed our historical enquiry skills by studying old photographs of Doncaster to explore some of the changes in transport over time.
