Welcome to Year 2

                         

                                             

Miss Taylor - Class Teacher       

We hope that you have had an enjoyable Spring break and Easter holiday and that the children are excited to be back. Myself and Mrs Oldham will continue to work hard to ensure that your child feels valued and safe and that they are prepared for the learning challenges ahead. The next term will be packed full of exciting learning opportunities that we can’t wait to share with you.

 

English

During the Summer Term we will be focusing on consolidating our grammar, punctuation and spelling skills. Our writing will be based around a core text and we will be focusing on the following genres: narrative, instructions, setting descriptions, poetry and diary writing. As always, we will be developing our comprehension skills through whole class guided reading.

 

Maths

At Sunny Bank we continue to embed a ‘mastery’ approach to maths. This term, children will be completing work on fractions, time, temperature, mass and capacity as well as revising previous math work in preparation for the end of the year. We aim to make maths lessons as practical as possible and ensure that we provide children with a range of learning opportunities to improve their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills.

 

Science

Our science topics this term are ‘Animals including humans’ and then ‘Plants’. Science at Sunny Bank focuses on both knowledge and working scientifically skills. We will also make links to other subject areas as often as possible.

 

Topic

We will start the term learning all about the Seaside! The children always find this a really enjoyable topic and it even includes a class trip to Lytham St Annes. Our next topic will be a study of a significant person in history. We have chosen to learn all about Neil Armstrong. Art, Design Technology and ICT will also taught through our topics.

Reading

Please ensure that your child has their reading book in school every day. We ask that all KS1 children use and bring a book bag, and not a rucksack, so that bags can be stored easily in class.

We ask that you aim to read with your child at least 3x a week and can I remind you to please sign your child’s Reading Record book each time you listen to them read.

If you feel like you need further advice on how to best support your child at home with their reading, then please don’t hesitate to come and speak to me. 

 

PE

Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school, with the correct footwear, and that all items are clearly labelled – including pumps.
