Year 2          Miss Bools       Term 6

Article 24:  You have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help you stay well.

Well done! You’ve almost survived Year 2 and have made it to Key Stage 2 and Year 3!  However, there is still lot of exciting learning to enjoy in our last term together.

This term will be a little different as I am now the Acting Assistant Head Teacher I am need more out of the class to help Mrs Withers run the school.  However I am still planning all the learning that you are doing and working with you at the beginning and end of the week. Mrs Amess will still be with you to help you with your learning.

Homework will continue as usual until the end of the term.  Here is your checklist for homework.  Are you remembering all these things?

  • Play on Sumdog – Use your login at home and practise those Maths games.  You can now also play on the reading and writing games too!
  • Learn your spellings- It is really important that you practise your spellings every day and not just the night before your test!  This means that you are more likely to remember them and use them in your daily writing.
  • Practise your Reading – You all get a reading book from school to read at home.  Remember as well as reading the books it is important to talk about what is happening in the story.  Think about the discussions we have about the texts we read in Guided Reading.
  • Complete Homework Tasks- Make sure you do your best and try doing your homework by yourself in a quiet place, so that you have a good practice of the things we have been doing in school. If you are unsure about what to do you can always talk Mrs Dear or Mrs Pilgrim about it, and she will help you to remember what to do.  You will get homework on Fridays and you must bring it back by the next Wednesday.
  • Learn your times tables- Keep practising those times tables.  Remember in Year 2 we are focusing on the 2, 3,4, 5 and 10 times tables.  Especially practise those 4x tables as they are the times tables that a lot of you are not so sure of.

 

What are we going to be learning in Term 6?

Our next topic is ‘How can we look after our wonderful world?’  We have already talked about this question and have thought about the different ways we can explore this topic.  As always you have come up with some really interesting and creative ideas.  As the term goes on we will be investigating and exploring the Science the environment, thinking about climate change and how recycling and reusing are important ways to look after our planet. In Art we are going to be exploring art in nature looking at sculpture and sketching skills through observing carefully..  In ICT we are going to work on creating our own presentations linking into our English learning about information texts. 

In our Maths learning we will be covering many different areas of calculations including place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division..

RE

We are starting the term by finishing our topic on Rules.  Our final topic is called Treasures and focuses on our Global church and how we can look after the world God has given us. 

Remember to say your daily prayers and this term remember your global family by using this prayer:

Loving God, fill our hearts with compassion

for the earth and all its peoples. Lead us to be

good neighbours to all who are in need.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

To help you with your learning I have put some websites below for you to use. And don’t forget that we have all the amazing activities on the ‘Sumdog’ website that you can explore. Maybe you have a favourite website that you use.  Let me know the address and we can add it to the website.
