Spring Term 1 2017



Welcome back

I hope that you have had a nice summer holidays.


Class News


In 2Y2 we expect superstar behaviour at all times and children will be working hard to earn some exciting new rewards throughout the year.


In Literacy children will be working hard on their phonic skills for reading and writing every day. They will also be completing some extended pieces of writing based on our school topic ‘Royals and Rebels’.


In Maths children will be working on number and place value, shape, space and measure, data handling and problem solving in a variety of ways.


Our school topic is Royals and Rebels and our focus in Year 2 is Queen Elizabeth I and castles. We will be going on a trip later in the term to visit a castle and find out what life was like in castles.


Within Science we will be looking at materials and how we use them. We will also be designing an outfit for Elizabeth I or a knight at the castle.


We will be reading different Roald Dahl books as a class this term including The Twits and The Enormous Crocodile.


We look forward to many new challenges and lots of fun this half term.


Working at home:




  • Mathletics (children have individual passwords to access at home)

  • Reading and discussion of books.

  • Maths skills – number bonds to 10/20, addition and take away sums, 2x, 5x and 10x tables.




  • Children need pumps and water bottles in school.

  • PE kits are needed on Thursdays and Fridays (tracksuit, TShirt, trainers)

  • Homework will be sent home on Fridays and should be completed before Thursday the following week.

  • Children can have reading books changed as often as they wish (they must be in our green box if they need changing).
