Be Kind, Be Brilliant
Term One 2022 - Wriggle and Crawl
Week one will all be about introducing the children to their classrooms and settling in - making new friends and getting to know the Year Two team. We will focus our learning on our emotions using the book The Colour Monster. In Maths, we will revise Year One learning and assess where each child is with their writing and reading.
Once settled, our book for the term will be Superworm and The Big Book of Bugs. We will set up lots of different science experiments and investigations surrounding bugs in our school environment. The children will have the opportunity to learn about using simple maps and using the vocabulary of North, South, East and West for giving directions.
Forest School will start mid-way through the term and a letter will come out nearer the time. Information for what your child will need is in the Welcome To Year 2 powerpoint near the top of this page.
In Maths this term we will focus on place value. See more information on our crib sheet below.
Below are links to crib sheets which we have created to help with how we teach maths, reading and writing at school and ways you can help at home. If you need any further information, please speak to your class teacher.
Please see quality books to read at home: https://images.scholastic.co.uk/assets/a/e9/cb/pie-corbett-yr2-1393273.pdf
Please take a look at the Sounds Write section on our website, which includes links to a series of videos about how to help with reading at home.
Reading is the most important activity you can do at home with your child. Please try to read for 10 minutes each day, but at least three times a week. This will help your child to learn new vocabulary, read fluently and hopefully develop a love for books.
PurpleMash and Mathletics homework will also be set, and we will start this once the children are settled into Year Two.
