Welcome to year 2.
Year 2 Newsletter – April 2015
Our topic is Australia
This term our topic is Australia. We will be looking at the differences between Australia and our own country including the climate and culture.
Homework will continue to be set on Fridays. Please ensure that spelling books come in with the children each Friday. Maths homework will be set via Mathletics unless alternative homework comes home with the children.
Please keep up the daily reading with your child and discuss their books as this is important with assessments drawing closer.
This is a very important term so attendance is crucial to the children’s learning. Year 2 SAT teacher assessments will be carried out over this half term (May) so attendance in these weeks is key. In order to prepare for these assessments continue with home reading and any homework set. Please do not stress about them as much of the decision is teacher assessment.
PE will continue to be on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that the appropriate PE kit is in school all week and that it is named
. All school uniform needs to be named otherwise it is difficult for items to be returned if they go missing.
As the weather is getting warmer it is important that the children bring in a named water bottle which they can keep in the classroom.
Details of our class trip this term will be announced shortly.
If there are any problems please do not hesitate to let us know and we look forward to an exciting and busy Summer term.
