Year 2

This term in Yellow Class...

Welcome to the new year at St Peter’s! I’m excited to be with Year 2 this year. What an amazing first week back Yellow class have had! The children have been learning about what makes them special as individuals and as a class.  

For the next couple of weeks, Yellow class will be following a unit of work which focuses on ‘The art of learning’ called ‘Brainwave’. We will be learning about how brains work, and how we can affect the quality of our own learning. 

In maths, we will be focusing on place value of 2 digit numbers. In English, we will be using the book 'How to Find Gold' by Viviane Schwartz for our inspiration to write for many different purposes.

In Science, we will be concentrating on animals and living things specifically on what they need in order to survive and how they adapt to different environments and situations.

In RE, we will be thinking about signs and symbols.

I would just like to take this opportunity to raise a few matters which are important for year 2: 

  • PE will be taught on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure children come to school wearing their PE kits on these days. 

  • Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes at least three times a week and also read to them when possible. Your child will be given the opportunity to change their reading books on a Friday. Please ensure your child’s book bag is in school every day.

  •  For maths fluency, we have introduced a website called ‘Numbots’. The children have been trained how to login and use the website. Please ensure your child uses this website at home to help increase the speed of number recognition and bonds:

Please feel free to speak to me on the gate during pick up and drop off times if there are any questions or issues.
