Welcome to Wonderful Wisterias!
Welcome back to Autumn Term in Year 2!
Mrs Brown and I are ready for all the exciting learning to commence and we can’t wait to see all the fantastic progress Wonderful Wisterias are sure to make.

Mrs Metheringham , Wonderful Wisterias Class Teacher
We will be learning about ‘Non Chronological Reports’ through our topic of ‘Arctic Adventures’. We will consider the features of non-fiction texts and will be producing our own reports about Polar Bears. We are still working on our literacy Non-Negotiable of being able to spell all high frequency words correctly and making sure we are forming all letters correctly in our handwriting. Please support your child with any un-highlighted words sent home as spellings.
This half term we will be focusing on adding, subtracting and multiplication, using a variety of methods to solve problems. We will be working hard on mental calculations and will be trying to improve their fluency in recalling number facts to 10 and 20. Please support your child with their Superhero Maths sheets and by asking them questions such as: What do I add to 13 to make 20? How much change would I get from 20p if I spent 5p?
Linked with our topic, we will be focusing on the basic needs of humans and animals. We will be looking at the life-cycles, food chains and what we need in order to survive. Our big question is…
Could a polar bear survive in the desert?
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.
Maths books have been ordered to support your child’s arithmetic. These will be handed out shortly. 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. If you would like to continue your child’s education, please look at the optional homework list.
