Welcome to Year 2
My name is Mrs Medley, Year 2 teacher and Key Stage 1 Leader.
I am very excited about the year ahead. Within the class this year is Miss Mountain and Mrs Marson.
We have some fantastic learning opportunities coming up this term. Our first topic is all about where we live. We will look at the village we live in, what it has to offer and then we will move onto the city of Wakefield, followed by our country. We will be using a variety of maps to find places and also drawing our own maps. We will be asking for photographs of places your child has visited within our country.
For Science and English we will study the focus text, ‘Traction Man’ and make links within our learning. In Science our topic is Materials, where we will be learning what materials are used in our toys and within our school building. In English we will be using the text to predict what will happen to the character, to describe characters, and create our own version of the adventures our character could go on.
Special Days to note:
PE: Tuesday and Thursday children will need trainers and an outdoor kit (for when the colder weather hits in).
Homework: Children will be given homework every Friday. This should be returned to school the following Wednesday. Children should practise their times tables (2s, 3s, 5s and 10s) and read at home daily. Please sign their reading record book each time they have read.
Spelling: Children will receive new spellings every Friday and will be tested the following week.
