Welcome to Year 2!

Dear Parents,

We hope you enjoyed joining us for our harvest celebrations and watching us perform our songs and Autumn poems which we had so much fun writing.

In our last week before half term we will be continuing to look at addition and subtraction, in particular jumping in 1s and 10s. We will be teaching your child different strategies to solve these sums including using dienes, jottings, number lines and mental strategies. Our literacy focus this week is fiction. We will ‘jump into a picture’ and write an adventure story based around the setting. Children will be given photographs of some of the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand to really capture their imaginations. We will be looking at the parables Jesus taught in RE, including The Lost sheep and The Good Samaritan and linking these to our school values and we will continue to explore The Zones of Regulation more fully, discussing our feelings and how we can react to our different emotions. 

We look forward to seeing you at parents evening this week. Please do come with any questions you want to ask but do please remember that each slot is a ten minutes long. We will try our best not to overrun but would appreciate your help in keeping us to time!

Have a lovely week.

The Year Two Team
