Books Going Home

English and Maths books will come home the weekend of the 27th and 28th of January. Please look through and discuss with your child and return them on Monday. 

 

Year 2 100 Spelling Words List

The children will bring a copy of the Year 2 100 words list home this week. The words highlighted in yellow are the words the children need to practice. Please choose a few each week to practice. Thanks for your support.

 

Junk Modelling

As part of our D and T this term, "Will you shake, pluck or hit your instrument?", we would like each child to bring in one piece of recycling each to make their instrument. For example, they could bring in an egg carton to make a maracas, a cereal box and cut out a guitar.

 

Read Write Inc. Spelling

In Year 2, we are using Read Write Inc to help us with our spellings. The children will learn and complete activities based on sounds each week in class. These spelling words match up with our weekly spellings tested on a Friday in dictation. As an optional extra, children can practise and learn the spellings we complete each week in their log books which are sent home daily. Please keep returning log books daily in blue bags. 

  • The ‘o’ sound spelt ‘a’ after ‘w’ and ‘qu’

Rhyme to remember:

Spell ‘o’ with an ‘a’ after ‘w’ as in wash

Spell ‘o’ with an ‘a’ after ‘qu’ as in squash

End of Key Stage 1 Assessments

End of KS1 tests (SATs) will be administered during the month of May. These tests contribute to our overall teacher assessment which is ongoing throughout the year.

Home Learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  We have therefore adapted our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

    • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. This will be evidenced through reading being recorded in reading records. Reading records and reading books should be coming into school daily. Reading records will be signed by teachers to check regular reading is occurring.
    • Learning spelling patterns linked to age-related expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home. Dictation (recorded on sheets) will now be sent home weekly in reading folders so you can see achievement and progress.
    • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. These will be  tested in our weekly times tables challenge and will be sent home.
    • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

Purple home learning books will no longer being used as practice can be done at home. You will be able to see achievement and progress through the dictation and times tables challenge sheets going home weekly. You will also be able to witness progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home once during every half-term.

Learning this week

 

English

This week we are beginning to read and write about Rosa Parks. We will be reading the book "I am Rosa Parks" and the children will retell the story of Rosa's life. Our grammar focus will be using apostrophes for contraction, for example did not - didn't, could not - couldn't. In addition to this, the children will be expected to write in the third person and past tense. 

Maths

This week we are beginning to learn all about money. The children will need to identify coins and their value. We will look at different ways of making the same amount of coins, for example; 

10p + 10p + 2p = 22p

10p + 5p + 5p + 2p = 22p

5p + 5p + 5p + 5p + 1p + 1p = 22p

 

We will also be adding money and finding change using subtractions. The children will be revisiting partitioning to add and subtract. 

Learning Next Week
