Kings Road, Walsall, West Midlands WS4 1JJ
Welcome to Year 2.
Our teachers this year are Mrs Fellows,
Mrs Hopkins, Mr Devey and Mrs Menear.
We are having Mrs Millard join us for the first half of the Spring term.
Our topic for the autumn term is London's Burning.
Our topic for the spring term is Indian Spice.
Our topics for the summer are The Home Front and Pioneers.
We will be doing PE on a Monday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
Homework: We will be sending home POW! projects relating to our current topics for children to work on over the term. The websites below also provide opportunities for children to develop their skills on the learning we are covering in Year 2.
Reading books: Please make sure your child brings their reading book each day. Please hear your child read at least three times a week; there are activities and question prompts to help you to support your child's reading and comprehension on the inside covers of each book. It is also good practice to read any age related text of your child's choice so children are exposed to a wide range of books including non-fiction books and poems. We will be issuing a comprehension exercise to do along with your child's reading book once an adult has signed their reading record to confirm that they have finished their book; these need to be completed by the child before a new reading book is issued.
Planners: these will be checked by a teacher every Friday. Please use them to pass messages from home to school, we will also write any messages we have for you in the planners.
Times tables: This year we will be learning our 2, 5, and 10 times tables.
