In literacy we will be looking at the story ‘Traction Man is Here’. We will be writing exciting adventure diary entries of ‘Traction Man’ who has an action outfit for every occasion! We will also be writing our own version of the story, with a twist to see who Traction Man will save! I wonder what adventures he will have in our stories!?
Year 2 will be focusing on telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes, name and describe the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes, estimate and compare volume, recognising and solving money word problems.
Keep practising our times tables and superhero maths. Quick recall is essential!
This half term our topic is ‘Superheroes’. We will be learning about the importance for humans to eat right, exploring food groups and designing our own healthy meal. We will be looking at the importance of exercise and good hygiene habits. We will be also be looking at the famous artist ‘Andy Warhol’.
One of the most important ways to support your child is by listening to them read. Please find time to read with your child at home, 3 times a week for at least 10 minutes – or more! Diaries will be checked and RED TED stars given each Friday. Each child will receive a brand new bookmarks this year for their reading book band. These have questions you can ask whilst reading to support your child's comprehension skills.
Weekly homework will be sent out on Fridays and will need to be completed and handed in by the following Friday. Each week, the homework will consist of a Maths task in the homework book that will reinforce our in-school learning. RED TED awards are continuing to be checked on a Friday. Thank you for all your support with this. Reading is an incredibly important part of your child’s education.
