Skylarks - Year 2 2019 - 2020
Autumn Term 2 - Remembrance
Welcome back. We hope that you have all enjoyed your October break and are ready for a shorter but equally busy half term. For regular updates on our daily adventures please check our school twitter feed.
Our English topic this half term will begin with a whole school writing project based on zoo animals to complement our whole school visit to the zoo. Our chosen focus is the African Wild Dog, building on our explorers work from last half term. We will be looking at information books and natural history documentaries to deepen our understanding. The children will write their own information pages and work on phrasing and writing questions for interviewing a special visitor.
Spelling and maths homework will be set on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday and these will both be completed electronically. Additional activities may be given to reflect and support current work but these are always optional. Thank you for supporting your child with this.
Thank you for your continued support should you have any questions please get in touch,
Autumn Term 1 - Explorers
Welcome to Skylarks class. We hope that you have all had a lovely summer and are looking forward to an exciting time in Year 2.
Our focus book for this half term will be ' A River' by Marc Martin. This will allow us to explore a variety of landscapes through a river journey. The children will plan and write circular stories, letters and poetry inspired by the text. Phonics will continue to be taught on a daily basis.
History and geography will focus around the question 'How have explorers changed the world?' and we will be looking in particular at the explorer Osa Johnson. We have 2 exciting visits planned - the first to Cheshire Wildlife Trust and later we will be visiting Chester Zoo. Further details will be shared with you nearer the time.
Maths and spelling/phonics homework will be set electronically on a Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday. Thank you for supporting your child with this. Please continue to read with your child at every possible opportunity, remembering to ask them what and why questions to help develop comprehension skills.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the 'Meet the Teacher' evening on Wednesday 4th September (3.30 - 4.00pm) where we will be discussing information such as homework, PE kit, curriculum and school routines.
To keep up to date with what is happening in class on a weekly basis, make sure you regularly check our school Twitter feed and look out for new blogs.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, either by email or at the end of the day.
