Striving for excellence..... Learning for life
We love sharing our new learning with you and can't wait to begin our next new topic 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures'. Please keep checking our web page and our Twitter feed for further information about what we have been learning in class and any other important information.
During May, all children in Year Two will be required to sit statutory assessment tests. To help you understand more about this process and the standard required by the end of Year Two, we are hoping to hold an informal meeting within the next half term. Please watch this space for dates and times.

Our P.E days have changed this term.
Both classes will both have P.E on a Tuesday every week.
We will also alternate having P.E on a Wednesday or a Monday.
Please make sure your child has both indoor and outdoor P.E kit in school on every day of the week. Please also make sure long hair is tied up on these days and that children have tape to cover earrings.
This half term, we will be continuing to look at diary writing. We have been reading a pirate diary to help us understand what life would have been like on the open seas. Through drama and discussion, we will be taking on the role of an explorer, writing about our highs and lows as we venture across the world. We can't wait for you to read them!
We will be particularly focussing on the use of:
Our reading focus this week is on retrieving information in a text. The children have ben learning about the skill of retrieving and putting it to use when researching about pirates.
We have begun to focus on written answers of comprehension and inferential questions. Please help your child improve on this skill whilst you are reading with them at home. There are many questions at the front of the Boomerang book that will help your child with comprehension.
We are currently exploring 2D and 3D shape. Ask your child about the vocabulary they have been using!
After shape, we will be moving on to division and fractions. In this unit we will be finding fractions of shapes and amounts, problem solving using division and calculating remainders.
We have a new bingo grid! Homework is due in on a Monday and will be returned to you on a Tuesday.
Please find a copy of our bingo grid here.
For each piece of homework the children complete, they collect homework stamps on a chart. The more stamps children collect, the more opportunity they have to win a prize at the end of the year.

Directions and Instructions
This week we have been focussing on directions and instructions. The children have created their own treasure maps and written instructions to find the treasure using imperative verbs and compass direction. Here are a few examples of the amazing maps they produced.
