Who's who in Year 2?
This half term our topic is 'Vile Victorians'. The children have been learning about Queen Victoria and her history. They have also written in the role of a Victorian chimney sweep and thought about the various Christmas traditions which originated in Victorian times. The children went on a trip to St John's Museum in Warwick. On the trip they took part in Victorian Christmas crafts, made a Christmas pudding and experienced life in a Victorian classroom.
Our next topic is 'Land Ahoy!' where the children will be learning all about pirates and their history.
Before the end of term, we will be launching 'Spelling Shed' as an online resource for children to use to practise year 2 spellings. The children will receive a login to use at home and access various games and activities to practise at home and improve their spelling ability. If you have any trouble accessing the activities, do not hesitate to speak to Miss Ruff or Mrs Trehy.
Reading at home
The children will bring home new a Read, Write Inc. reading book each week. They should read this aloud each night and discuss the story. There are some questions in the home reader books to answer too to test their comprehension knowledge. The children will also bring home a library book to share with an adult. These can be changed as often as needed.
Every half term the children will bring home a list of suggested homework tasks they can complete linked to our topic. They can do these at their leisure and return them to school as and when they complete them. We recommend that the children try to complete at least 3 of the tasks across the half term however if they wish to do more, they certainly can!
