Year Two – Term One Newsletter
Welcome back, hope you all had a restful summer holiday and are looking forward to the new academic year.
This term our topic is ‘Seaside – Now and Then’ and we will be using this throughout the curriculum:
English – we will be focusing on writing postcards, menus and diary entries. Our reading objective is to focus on understanding and comprehension of a text and to make predictions.
Maths – during term one we will be covering objectives for Place Value and Addition/Subtraction. Also we will be practising our counting in 2’s, 5’s, 10’s and 3’s.
Topic – within D&T, History and Science lessons we will be learning about the different aspects of seaside holidays and looking at local history in relation to our seaside and the changes it has seen in our lifetime. We will also be doing some exciting activities linked to our terms book “The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch”. With so many interesting aspects to cover, it will be a fun-filled and engaging term!
P.E. – Monday and Thursday are the Year 2 timetabled P.E. days this term. Please ensure that your child has the required kit.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the office and I can arrange to meet you.
