Dear parents and children,
Welcome back to the summer term!
Science, History and Geography:
During the summer term we will be learning about animals including humans. We will find out about how our bodies work, why we have skeletons and learn the names of the bones and organs within the human body.
We we find out about the monarchs of Britain and celebrate the anniversary of the Royal Wedding with a tea party on the school field in May.
In geography we will be doing local field work; learning about Stogursey and the surrounding areas.
We will start our maths topic by refreshing our knowledge of place value and the four operations before looking at statistics and shape. During May the year 2 children will sit their SAT's.
In English we will be planning and writing our own stories which the children will base closely on the text, ‘Beegu'.
After writing their Beegu stories the children will be writing instructions for making a fruit salad. This is linked to our topic (in science) about 'the body'.
This term our religious education topic will be ‘Judaism'.
Spellings and Multiplication tables:
This year children will bring home homework in the form of spellings, reading and multiplication tables.
The children can practise their multiplication and spellings in the red homework book which has been provided. There is space for the children to practise spellings and multiplications each day. The books will be collected on a Wednesday and the children will be tested for times-tables on a Wednesday and tested for spellings on a Thursday. Red homework books will be given out with the new homework on a Thursday. Children who do not complete the homework task are asked to complete it on a Thursday lunch time before they go out for break.
Please can you ensure that all of your child’s uniform is clearly labelled as well as their P.E kit which needs to be in school for P.E every Friday.
Please can you hear your child read every evening and log this in their reading diary.
