Year 2 Newsletter


Welcome back to Year 2! SUMMER TERM 2018

We are all looking forward to an exciting final term in year 2!



During our literacy sessions, we will be looking at the texts The Day the Crayons Quit, The Twits and a selection of non-fiction texts related to our topics. We will be rehearsing all the skills we have learnt this year such as correct punctuation (capital letters, full stops, question marks and exclamation marks), using a range of conjunctions, using the 4 different sentence types and spelling common exception words correctly.



This term we will have a real focus on problem solving using the different methods we have learnt so far this year in different contexts. We will continue to practice the basic skills of addition, subtraction, number bonds and related subtraction facts. All children should know their 2,5 and 10 x tables and corresponding division facts and number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.



This term our theme is “Holidays”. We will look at holidays in the past and present, identifying how they have changed and what caused these changes. As part of our holiday topic we will have a seaside day where we bring the seaside to Greenholm.



“How does your garden grow?” During this topic we will be investigating how bulbs and seeds grow into plants. We will also be identifying and naming the different plants that grow a range of habitats and observing them closely.


P.E and Uniform

Our P.E. day is Monday but we would like your child to keep their kit in school all week so that we can go outside to and have additional P.E. on other days. Please ensure that all PE kit, Uniform and clothing accessories are all clearly labelled with your child’s name and class.


Home-Work and Home-Readers

Just a reminder that all children need to have their home reader diaries signed with a comment in order for their books to be changed. Everyone has been brilliant with bringing their homework in on the correct days, so let’s keep it up for the final term!
