Year 2 Class Page Autumn 2021
It is a great joy to meet our new Year 2 class and begin to look forward to all the treats
ahead of us this term- a trip to the theatre, the Christmas play and lots of new learning.
In science this term, we will be learning about everyday materials and spending some time
venturing around our school grounds to investigate how these materials are used.
In English the children will be learning the story of ‘Red Riding Hood’ so they can recite it
and then use it to write their own tradition tale. In maths we will be concentrating on place
value and numbers 1- 40, as well as beginning to learn long addition and subtraction.
We begin our history unit in present day London, then travelling back to 1665 and 1666,
finding out how the Great Plague and Great Fire of London changed the city of London
Homework will be given on a Friday and is due back on Wednesday. Please practice the
weekly spellings as children will be tested every Friday. The children are now changing their
books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure your child has their Foxes
Piece school bookbag that was given to them in Reception.
PE lessons will be on Tuesdays and Thursday and we ask that children come in wearing their
uniform and without any earrings.
