You could use www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/bookfinder to help you choose books to read at home.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr... me hearties, - it's a sailor's life for me¬
Get your sea legs on, it's time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world - just like Captain Blackbeard.
Our topic will take us on a journey around the world focusing on the routes of famous explorers such as Captain Cook and Christopher Columbus. We will be finding out what life was like on board a ship and making applications to join Captain Blackbeard's crew!
Our topic will cover a variety of objectives including:
If there are any local events related to our topic, we would love to know.
Similarly, if you are an expert about any part of our topic, please contact us.
This year, we will not be sending home bingo. These are just a few ideas of ways you could link tasks at home to the topic we are looking at school...
* Search the web or library for facts about famous ships
* Visit a maritime museum, lighthouse or harbour
* Make a map of your home and local area
* Look at holiday brochures. Where would you like to explore?
Our reading focus this term is on retrieving information from a text by scanning for key words. We are also focussing on vocabulary, looking closely at meanings, synonyms and how words are chosen carefully for effect.
Please help your child develop these skills by asking questions about tricky language in their school book.
Below is an example of the types of questions your child will be answering in class as part of our DERIC reading sessions.
During the Autumn Term, children in Year Two will be completing a lot of topic based writing beginning with a journey story based on a pirates voyage . We will then move onto instruction writing. Please help your child by discussing descriptive language in your reading at home and ensuring they understand how to use basic sentence punctuation.
We are currently learning about Place Value and Numbers to 100. We will be focusing on the following:
This year we will be teaching Maths through a scheme called Power Maths. As we start a new unit, we will update this page with the essential vocabulary, learning objectives and key questions that we will be discussing. Use the drop down boxes below to find out more about each unit.
There are currently no events.
P.E kit (please leave in school)
Homework folder - this only needs to come in on Tuesday and goes home on Wednesday
Children in Year Two are eligible for free school meals and are provided with a healthy snack for break times.
*At the start and end of the day if you wish to speak to us in person. We can always arrange a longer meeting if required.
*Written messages can also be sent in to school with your child as long as they remember to give them to us!
*Email via firstname.lastname@example.org
Children in Year Two are responsible for choosing and changing their own books under the supervision of an adult. In order to do this they must put their book bag in the correct box in the classroom. Please ensure that you fill out the reading record so we know they can change their book.
Miss Farnsworth teaches every day
Miss Jackson teaches Monday and Tuesday
On a Wednesday, it will either be Miss Jackson or Miss Coull
Miss Coull teaches on Thursday and Friday
Mrs Tucker, Mrs L Green, Mrs Bobat and Mr Sanders all support in Year 2
Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school everyday. Year 2 PE days are Monday and Wednesday every week.
There will be indoor and outdoor PE so please make sure your child has appropriate kit for both. When the weather gets colder, this should include trousers and a long-sleeved top like a sweatshirt.
For PE lessons, hair must be tied back and earrings removed. Alternatively, you could send your child with micropore tape to cover their earrings.
These folders contain X-Factor sheets for your child to fill in at home. You will see that there are new rounds this year. Last year, Year 1 worked so well through the addition and subtraction, we felt it would be beneficial for children in KS1 to learn all the addition and subtraction facts before the multiplication and division facts.
. Once your child reaches the end of the new rounds, they will go back to the times tables round they were on last year. Once you have completed the X Factor example please mark it with your children. They will then receive a merit in school when they hand it in. If you have any questions then please ask. We hope that learning new facts and earning more certificates will really help them all.
This week Year 2 have received vocabulary homework in the form of fridge words. We ask that the children discuss the meanings of these words and how they link to our topic.
Homework this week:
