Happy New Year
Welcome back. We have lots of exciting learning ahead of us in 2024.
Children will have a reading book chosen by themselves appropriate to their reading level. Accompanying these books are their reading diaries, where you can write comments on their reading daily. Your child will also be given many opportunities throughout the week to read a variety of texts. The children also choose a book from our reading corner.
Miss Wilson is out of class on a Monday afternoon.
During this time the children have Religious Education with and PE with Mr Caldecott.
In Year 2, children will be focusing on reading their reading book at least three times a week. We will be sending some homework books home later in the term.
Weekly spellings will be every Friday. You should practise these throughout the week, ready to be tested on these on the following Friday Morning.
We will be continuing to develop our understanding of place value. Using these skills to add and subtract. Looking at length and different units of measure. We will deepen our understanding of time and consolidate our Autumn 2 learning on money.
We will write our own Non-Chronological Report of on Owls & Birds of Prey. We will focus on compound sentences, noun phrases and a range of subordinating conjunctions. We will then read and then write our own innovated versions of The Owl Who Is Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson
Please see our Spring 1 newsletter and our curriculum map below for more information on our learning in Spring 1.
PE will take place every Monday and
Thursday. PE kits are to remain in school.
It is important to note your child can bring a healthy snack at break times such as fruit or vegetables and milk. We also encourage your child to bring water to drink in class throughout the day, but they may bring something else to drink with their packed lunch.
The pupils can bring their own bottle of water each day.

Our Class Assembly
It was an absolute pleasure to see the class showing off their amazing knowledge of vocabulary and facts linked to birds. Well done 2W for your excellent class assembly.
We experimented with a variety of media. We revisited some of the painting skills in year one and created our own multi-media pictures inspired by the work of the artist Yinka Ilora. We used a variety of techniques, inc. weaving, and dyeing, fabric crayons and wax to decorate different materials. We created joyful, colourful and fun art on our own pencil cases.
