Year 2

 
Welcome to the Year 2 page!

Our project for the Spring term is called Coastline and we are looking forward to another beach trip this term. This project teaches the children about the physical and human features of coastal regions across the United Kingdom, including the effects of erosion and how to stay safe when visiting the coast. We will use maps to learn about the location of the world's seas and oceans and keys to learn about map symbols. Inspired by our Coastline project, we will be writing seaside poems and fact files about Brighton. Our Science mini project is called 'Uses of everyday materials'. We will learn about how everyday materials are used and how a material's properties make them suitable or unsuitable for specific purposes. 

 If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch by email via the school office.

Additional Information:

 Reading

Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage.  We ask that you and your child read four times each week and make a note of this in their reading diary. 

The children have enjoyed using Karate Cats, which is a great game for revising key reading, writing and Mathematic skills.

Spellings

A list of the Year 1 and 2 common exception words that your child is expected to read and write by the end of year can be found here.

Mental Maths

Don’t forget that your child can use Mathseeds to reinforce their Maths learning at home. The driving tests are great for practising their quick recall of number facts.
