Year 2

 
Welcome to the Year 2 page!

Our topic for Summer 2 is Beside the Seaside. We will be launching our topic with our exciting seaside day on Tuesday 15th June. The children are also invited to share a photo of them on the beach and to talk about their trip. We will be reading ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’ by David and Ronda Armitage which will inspire instructional writing on how to make a healthy picnic, as well as diary entries too. As historians, we will be researching about how Brighton has changed over the years. We will also be studying famous people who have contributed to the development of Brighton as a seaside town. We are busy planning a trip to the beach and are excited for our sessions to be led by a qualified beach leader! More details to follow soon...

 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 on Seesaw. 

The children have loved using Karate Cats in school! You can practise spelling, grammar and punctuation here.

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

You can help your child by helping them to learn their 2, 5 and 10 multiplication and division tables. Click here for a great game for practising times tables and division facts as well as number bonds!

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.

The children have loved using Karate Cats in school! You can practise key mathematical concepts that we have covered this year here.
