This year the teacher working in Year 2 is Mrs Bennett. Mrs Butterworth and Mrs Willis be supporting in the classroom every day. Mrs Tyndall will be teaching in the classroom on a Tuesday morning to cover Mrs Bennett's PPA time.
This term we are looking forward to lots of different activities. For our topic learning the children will discover more about their home city and consider how Plymouth looked in the past. They will follow an historic timeline from Sir Francis Drake until the present day. In Maths, we will begin with Place Value and we will learn how to add and subtract 2-digit numbers. We will continue to challenge ourselves with our 2x, 3x , 5x and 10x times tables. In English, the children will learn how to write noun phrases and use them to write interesting sentences.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure that your child's PE Kit is in school every day just in case we have a change.
Please keep checking back for updates and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.
During the school day your child will read regularly in small groups and on their own. In order to help your child develop their reading skills, it is expected that they will read at least three times per week at home.
As well as reading, your child will be expected to learn their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables so that they can recall the answers quickly. They will also have weekly spelling sheets to complete. Once a month, the children will bring home a piece of homework relating to the current value. They will share this completed learning with their friends, in the classroom, at the end of each month. If you have any questions regarding your child’s homework please do not hesitate to ask one of the Year 2 team.
