Please make sure children's school uniform and PE kits are named in a permanent way. It's tricky to find and return uniform where a child's name is wearing out etc!
All About Me!
Welcome to Year 2
In our topic ‘It’s All About Me’ we will be: learning more about each other; finding out about our local geography; making maps; photography; our own timelines and painting self-portraits and striking and fielding games.
We will be talking about...
What makes me me?
What makes me special?
Would life be interesting if we were all the same?
How could I write an interesting story?
What does the school look like on a map?
How can I make my own map of the school?
What has happened in my life so far?
How could I make a timeline of my life?
How can I take a better photo?
What happens when I mix different colours together?
How could I paint a self-portrait of myself?
How can I use what I know about this game to help my team win?
How can I be an effective member of a team?
The children write their new spellings into their A5 red and white Read Write Inc spelling books every Monday. We have spelling quizzes on Fridays. It's super important that children practise these at home! These spelling books need to be in school every Monday.
New Literacy or Numeracy homework goes out on Fridays in the A4 orange homework book. Homework needs to be handed in on Wednesday at the latest every week. Homework books need to be handed in on time so they can be marked and new homework given.
See the 'Helpful Documents' section further down this page for more useful information and resources.
