Welcome to Year 2

Dear Parents and Carers


In the autumn term, our topic is An Eye for London, during which we will be learning about London, now and in the past. .  We will have visitors from the London Fire Brigade who the children can question about modern and historical fire fighting techniques as well as fire prevention. In Literacy, we will be looking at traditional tales, diary entries and newspaper reports which will cover our novels, Flat Stanley, Grace and Family and Horrid Henry .  In Numeracy, children will be covering counting, partitioning, calculating and understanding shape and measure.  We will be looking at maps and shapes in the local environment.


In the spring term, our topic is Strong and Healthy with a focus on the human body and how it functions. This topic will link with Science where we will be exploring animals, including humans.


In the summer term, our topic is Around the World in 60 Days where the children will have opportunities to learn about the different continents and countries around the world.  Our science topic is Variation in Plants.  A visit to the zoo will further consolidate understanding about plants and animals.


We are working on our handwriting.  Practise these patterns to help improve your fine motor skills!

Our school policy is that homework is sent home every Friday and should be returned every Thursday, signed by parents.  You will receive a report card at the end of term to keep you informed as to how your child is progressing at school.


PE takes place every week. Please ensure your child keeps their PE kit in school.


Please feel free to talk to us if you have any concerns or would like to visit us in class.


Yours sincerely

The Y2 team
