Foxes (Year 2 W)

Welcome back, Foxes! I hope you and all of your families have had a restful Easter break and are ready to get back learning!

Our Summer 1 topic is 'Historic Heroes'. We will be reading Traction Man by Mini Grey and our writing our own action and adventure stories. In Maths, we will focus on the topics: Measurement (Length and Height) and Geometry (Position and Direction) as well as continuing to practice and embed number fluency in our number bonds and times tables. Topic this half-term will include opportunities in Science to learn about various materials to help with the construction of our own bridge in D&T based on the learning of Isambard Brunel in History. In RE, we will explore the question: 'Can stories change people?' based on the Jewish faith.

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
