Autumn Term 2022

A really warm welcome to Year 2! Our main topic for the autumn term is called ‘Hooray for Heroes!” Our ‘Sparkling Start’ will be a dress up day on the first day of term, where children will be able to dress up as their favourite superhero.                        

In Literacy this term we will base our work on books about super heroes. We will write a recount about the adventures of Eliot the midnight superhero and about the dastardly deeds of Evil Pea.  We will write an argument about whether Gru was a good or bad person. In maths we will focus on number and place value as well as learning new addition and subtraction strategies. In science we will begin by looking at the Earth’s movement in space and link this to our superhero topic. We will move onto learning about how to keep ourselves healthy. We will learn about the artist Lichtenstein and create pieces of art in the pop art style. We will design and make a superhero logo for a superhero of our choice.

It is vital you read with your child as much as you can, remember- Children who read, succeed! We expect your child to read to an adult at least 4 times a week. Each child will get an opportunity to change their home reading books on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We will also have fortnightly spelling tests of the wordbanks which will be sent home with your child.

There will be daily phonics and guided reading lessons to develop reading and comprehension skills. All children will have the option to take books from the Reading Puffins scheme and the school library.

We look forward to speaking with you at the Learning Review meetings later this half term, but please approach us with any queries or questions you have about any of our curriculum at any time.
