Welcome back Year 2!

We are delighted to have you back and can't wait to get to know you all and take part in the exciting learning we have planned for this term.

 

Our topic for Autumn is "London".

 

In Autumn 1 we will be focussing on geography and learning about the UK and where we are in relation to other countries.

In Autumn 2 we will be focussing on history and learning all about the Great Fire of London.

 

Please find our curriculum overview and knowledge organisers below.

 

 

 

Please use the handout provided in your child's homework pack and discuss the story at home.

 

The Smartest Giant in Town - Julia Donaldson

Home reading books.

 

 

All reading books will now be assigned online. You will all receive your own login to the Big Cat e-library. Once logged in, you will see the book your teacher has assigned to you. If you need help please contact us or follow the user guide.

 

Children are expected to log on and read every night.

Reading books will be changed every Friday. 

If your child has finished the book, encourage them to read it again and ask them questions to check their understanding of the book.

 

If you are experiencing long loading times for Big Cat, you may need to clear your browsing data to speed up the logging in process. Please see the PDF below explaining how to do this.

Homework

 

Homework will be set every Friday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.

 

Children should also be logging on to Big Cat every day and reading their books.

Important Notices

It is important your child reads and gets their Reading Journals signed every night. This will be checked once a week by your child's teacher.

 

PE is on a Tuesday. Please bring your child to school in their PE kit every Tuesday.

PE kits need to be plain. Please do not bring your child to school in expensive, branded clothes.

 

Children can log on to Purple Mash and complete their own educational games and activities at home.
