This term we are looking at materials which has a Science focus. We will be learning about different types of materials and their properties and we will be carrying out lots of investigations!
In English we have created our own information book about materials. We have also been looking at poetry and created some of our own riddles. Can you guess what these riddles are talking about?
What homework the children will be set:
English and Maths – set each Friday to be handed in by Wednesday.
WE will now be giving children both Maths and English homework each week. The English will be mainly reading comprehensions and some writing exercises. We would still like the children to continue with Mathletics and Bug Club (the school ID is 7hml).
Days that the children have PE:
Thursday – Indoor, Wednesday – Outdoor. Please could you ensure that your child has a full and named PE kit in school for those days. Indoor PE kit comprises shorts, T shirt and Plimsolls or trainers. Outdoor PE kit comprises shorts, t shirt, tracksuit and trainers. Please could long hair be tied back. If your child has their ears pierced, they need to be able to remove these by themselves or leave them out on PE days.
Library - Wednesday
If your child has anything linked to our topic that they would like to bring in and share with the class please send it in.
This term the children will be looking at poetry and information texts. They will be looking at different types of information texts such as books and posters and they will also be looking at a variety of different poetry and performing their own with actions! There will be a continued emphasis on handwriting and presentation. We are also working on getting the children to use their knowledge of phonics to help them spell words with greater accuracy.
It would be great if you could look at some examples of newspapers with the children, looking at the layout and how they are written.
Practise reading and spelling Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words:
Please practise cursive letter formation at home. Allow the children to join their letters as this will begin to develop greater fluency and speed.
The children will continue to develop fluency in number and reasoning about what they know, using their knowledge of number facts that has been taught so far.
In Year 2 your child will be
