Year 2 Weekly Update – 30/04/21

Dear Parents,
Please find your child’s learning for next week and home learning activities.
English: Next week the children will continue to write a letter home from the main character Tom in ‘The Night Pirates’ by Peter Harris. They will be focusing on capital letters, full stops, adjectives and writing in the first person.
Maths: Next week in Maths we will begin our learning about position and direction. We will be learning how to accurately use mathematical vocabulary including clockwise, anticlockwise, half turn, quarter turn, left and right.
RE: Year 2 will be learning about how and why Jesus had to return to Heaven. They will then reflect on how the disciples might be feeling and discuss what they have learnt from the story shared.
RHE: Our new focus is ‘Keeping safe’. The children will be learning the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ secrets and that they can and should be open with ‘special people’ they trust if anything troubles them.
Home learning
Spellings: The ‘le’ sound at the end of words.
Please continue to read and spell the Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words at home with your child.
To support your child with their spellings further you can also use the following resources at home:
Maths will be set on purple mash.
  • Friday 7th May is number day where the children will take part in lots of Math focused games with their peers.
  • Home books and library books to be returned on Wednesdays.
Kind Regards,
Miss Hunt & Miss Fielden
