Welcome to Year 2 Yellow!
I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break and a happy new year.
Our topic this term is “Exciting Explorers”. We will be learning about different types of maps, human and physical landmarks, a few famous explorers who have affected our lives and we will become explorers ourselves. We are also very excited and looking forward to our residential at Barnston.
In English we will be learning about a book called ‘The Dragon Machine’. We will be learning how to make our sentences longer with conjunctions, use different type of punctuation and begin to use apostrophes. We will be writing different types of writing such as diaries, letters and our own fantasy story.
Homework will still be set every Friday. To earn a house point the homework must be returned by the following Thursday. Also, It is important that you spend a little time each night reading to an adult. Please try to read as much as you can. Make sure that an adult signs your reading record so that you can earn certificates and prizes in the Wolverham Reading Challenge.
P.E will now be on a Wednesday this term. Please make sure that the children have a white t-shirt, blue/ black shorts and black pumps or trainers. All items need to be clearly labelled with their names please!
I am very excited to start a new term with Year 2 yellow. If you have any problems, please don’t hesitate to come in and speak to me.
