English

Please see the attached files below which outline the WRITING and READING objectives that we will be covering in Year 2.

 

Reading

Children in Year 2 will read with and adult at least once every week and will be given a 'reading day'. However, all children will also be involved in 'guided or group' reading activities throught each week.

Our main focus in Year 2 reading is on COMPREHENSION. Children will be required to use their skills of prediction, deduction and inference to discuss the text. Lots of practice at home will really help with this.

Please find time to read and discuss your books at least 4 or 5 times each week. 

 

Writing

Children in Year 2 are expected to do a little more writing than they were used to in Year 1.  They will be learning to join their letters together so any chance they get to practise their writing at home is of great benefit. We will be (hopefully) enriching our writing with lots of describing words and phrases, which again, can be practised orally at home.

Children will be getting used to editing and improving their own writing with 'purple-polishing pens'!

There will be considerable emphasis on GRAMMAR, PUNCTUATION & SPELLING so be prepared for some new terminology!!

 

Spelling

In Year 2 most children have 10 individual spelling to learn each week.

These will include the First 100  High Frequency Words

As well as learning their spellings in list form, children are expected to correctly use their newly-learnt spellings in their writing.

Please find time to practise your spellings at least 4 or five times each week.

 

 

MATHEMATICS

Please see the attached document below which outlines the National Curriculum Year 2 maths objectives.

The children will be learning in a variety of ways with lots of mental/oral work, group/collaborative work, partner work and of course some important written recording. They will begin to look for ways to correct their own work and extend their learning with next steps.

 

Here in Year 2 we will continue to build on the skills and knowledge that they acquired in Year 1.   Initially, we will be working hard on place value (hundreds, tens and units,) and number bonds to 20

eg.  11 +9 =20       9 + 11 = 20       8 + 7 = 15   7 + 8 = 15

This will include knowing these facts by heart as well as being able to swap the sum over and apply these facts to practical problem solving.

 

We will also begin to learn our 2X, 5X and 10X tables and relate this to sharing/dividing too.

Lots of practical and fun measuring activities have been planned too so watch this space!

 

Whilst it is important for the children to regularly practise their reading and spelling, it is equally important to boost confidence in maths. Short, daily practice with addition/subtraction facts and times tables is therefore also recommended.

Year 2 MATHEMATICS OBJECTIVES

Autumn Term 2
Our topic focus this term is TIME TRAVELLERS. We will be looking at LONDON in the time of GUY FAWKES and the GUNPOWDER PLOT , REMEMBRANCE DAY, THE PLAGUE and THE GREAT FIRE OF LONDON. There will be a big focus on History.
ENGLISH
We will be continuing with some 'nitty-gritty' writing habits with our handwriting and learning to join our letters fluently.

 

Children will be expected to consolidate their understanding of Year 1 PHONIC patterns by using them correctly in their independent writing. We will be introducing new spelling rules and common exception words which children will be expected to know by the end of the year. A copy of these is in the general information above.
 
We aim to instill a great love for reading in Year 2 and hope that by the end of the year, all children are devouring books and e-books with huge enthusiasm! Children will be bringing home two-three books each week and will be expected to regularly read and discuss these books with an adult at home and in school. This will help to support and develop their understanding of the content. We will be continuing our written reading comprehension activities too. We also hope to be taking the children to Crownhill Library this term.
