Reading: As part of our ‘Street Detectives’ topic, we will be reading ‘On The Way Home’ by Jill Murphy, and considering links to other pieces of narrative fiction such as the appearance of the character, ‘the big bad wolf’. The children will also continue to learn new sounds in their phonics groups (see http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents/or more information). Accelerated reading will begin this year – please look out for your child’s new book, which will soon be sent out in their book bags.
Learning in Science
During our first half term, Year 2 will describe how a habitat provides for the basic needs of living things. We will Identify and name plants and animals in different habitats, and match living things to their habitat. In addition to this, the children will identify and name a range of materials, and suggest why a material might or might not be used for a specific job.
To find out more about what your child will be learning and how to support them, read our Parents' Guide by clicking the link below:
the interest of maintaining the standards of our ambitious school family can we
request that children arrive promptly for school and in correct uniform (this
includes black shoes- not trainers.)
