WELCOME TO YEAR 2!
Please see the Summer Term curriculum newsletter for information on what we will be getting up to in class this term and keep checking back for updates on our learning!
This term our topic will be:
We are very excited to start our Summer Term topic! There are already many space experts in Year Two and we can’t wait to share our knowledge. We are going to be using lots of our skills to help us investigate and learn a variety of new things about space and the people who travel there. We will focus on Tim Peake’s recent mission to the International Space Station as well as other famous astronauts and space explorers from history. We will also conduct some science work investigating if we can grow plants in space as well as learning about the different planets in our solar system. We can’t wait!
PE sessions are on Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their kit in school for this day! Please can I gently remind parents to label any new uniform purchased over the summer with your child’s name. Thank you!
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s reading. The key to success in reading is to read as often as possible and it is so important that your child reads at home as well as in school. Please can you remind your child to bring their reading folders to school every day so that we can take every available opportunity to read with them during the school day.
As part of our morning jobs, children will spend some time reading for enjoyment. The Year Two library is stocked with lots of reading materials but if your child would like to bring in a book or magazine from home to read during these sessions they are more than welcome to! We encourage children to read what they enjoy!
We are determined to be times table experts in Year 2! As with reading, it is really important to rehearse these at home as well.
We will begin working on fast recall of the 2, 5 and 1o times table.
We will then move onto 3 and 4.
We’re going to be busy this term! You can follow some of our progress on the Glasllwch Twitter page: @GlasllwchP
