Foxes (Year 2 W)


Subject Help Videos

Dear Parents/ Carers,

We know it can be tricky sometimes to know how best to support your child at home without a clear understanding of what is taught in school and how. To help, we have created some subject videos across the core subjects of reading, phonics and maths which will highlight what we teach in Year 2, some methods of how we teach it, plus some top tips and hints from both of us. This should help bridge the link between home and school for all of our Foxes and Dormice children.

Please have a watch and if you have any questions following the videos please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

Mr Riordan and Miss Etheridge

Welcome back, Foxes!

Welcome back, Foxes, and I hope you have a fantastic Christmas break and a very happy New Year! Our Spring 1 topic is ‘Fire! Fire!’ based on The Great Fire of London! We will be reading and writing diaries based upon Samuel Pepys’ as well as investigating all the events of the 1666 fire in History alongside what life was during the period compared to 2022. In Maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division, statistics, shape, fractions and measure. Our topic will allow us to conduction scientific investigations regarding materials and heat, plus investigating materials and their suitability, such as how waterproof different materials are. This will feed into our D&T projects as we create products, items and houses. In RE we will explore the question: ‘Why does Easter matter to Christians?’ as well as studying the New Year in different religions.

On this page you will find:

   - The home learning grid for Spring 1 half-term

   - Spellings lists (which will be updated on Spelling Shed shortly)

   - A topic grid for ‘Fire! Fire!’ will be available in due course

Important information:

   - PE days – Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their PE kit on these days.

   - Home Folders – Will go home and need to come back into school every day.

   - Home Learning should be uploaded to Seesaw if you wish to share it with your teacher and class. Please try to avoid brining any items in from home other than those listed.
