Welcome to Year Two!
This half term we will be journeying to Antarctica! We will be learning about some of the explorers who have tried to lead expeditions across the continent and what happened to them. We will be using what we find out about Antarctica to write non-chronological reports and persuasive arguments. Our Maths learning this half term will be focusing on developing our understanding of the four operations of number and the strategies we can use to solve a range of number problems.

Please read with them every night, taking time to discuss what the story was about. Books from the library, other story books, picture books, newspapers, magazines and comics are all excellent reading materials and also provide children with the opportunity to experience different ways of writing and sharing information and also provides an alternative to their school reading book.
Mrs Edwards will be teaching Year Two on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Speller will be teaching on Thursday and Friday. Year Two's Teaching and Learning Assistants are Mrs Sauvage (mornings only), Mrs Gregg (afternoons only) and Miss Richardson (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday am).
Please make sure that your child has their book bag and reading book in school every day.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has a full PE kit in school every day. PE kit should include shorts or tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE.
Please, please name EVERYTHING. It is amazing how easily the children lose or misplace items from their PE kits, their uniforms, their coats and even their shoes!
