Welcome to Year 2

We hope you have an enjoyable Christmas holidays with your children. Next term in Year 2 our topic is ‘Famous People from the Past’. Within this topic we will be learning all about famous people from Plymouth, the UK and around the World. Towards the end of this topic the children will be holding a ‘Famous People Awards Party’. The children can come dressed as a famous person from the past and share what they have learnt this term. This will allow all of their learning this term to be showcased and there may even be a surprise visitor!

English this term will focus on information texts. The children will be making links with their Topic learning and writing about the life and times of Florence Nightingale. The children will kick start this learning with a First Aid workshop thinking about how to respond safely in emergencies. We will continue to practise handwriting daily, using the cursive style so that children develop speed and confidence with their writing.



Maths will focus on the children developing their understanding of written methods and being able to apply this knowledge to two-step word problems. We will also begin to explore strategies to support us when multiplying and dividing numbers by 2, 3, 5, and 10.

Homework expectations this year include reading at least three times per week, completing a weekly spelling sheet and a weekly home learning task. Homework books should be handed in on a Thursday so that new spelling sheets and homework can be added and your child's spelling test score can be reported. Homework books will be returned to you on Friday. We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of the Parents/Carers who continue to support their child's learning at home, it really helps them to make even better progress.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Braund and Miss Terry.
