The Gruffalos Y2W
It is a pleasure to welcome your children to The Gruffalos
We love learning and our classroom promotes
Enjoyment, Respect and Success.
Class Dojo is updated regularly with photographs and videos of our learning.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at school or at the door upon collection.
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.
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 Novel
Roald Dahl is our author of the term. This is one of my favourite books.

Autumn 1 Curriculum Overview
In Maths this term we will be looking at numbers 0 – 50, reading and writing numbers in numerals and words. We will be looking at place value, tens and units within a number and making numbers. This will involve using a variety of different materials to represent the given number. We will be learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables and have weekly tests. Further to this, the children will apply the skills taught to solve problems.
In English this half term we will be reading books with a familiar setting. Our main text is ‘The way home for Wolf’ by Rachel Bright. We will learn key skills such as Capital letters, full stops and finger spacing which will allow us to write our own version of the story. Following this, we will be studying the features of non-chronological reports in order to produce our own report based on wolves.
Please see our Autumn 1 newsletter and our curriculum map below for more information on our learning in Autumn 1.
Here is the text that our work in English will be focused around. It is a wonderful story about a baby wolf who makes many friends when he is trying to find his way home.
