YEAR 2

Spring Term 2019

We hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday!

Our Spring term begins with a new topic: In The Night Sky. We will be looking at and learning about the solar system and living things that come out at night.

In English, we start off the term with a whole school writing project with a new book : The Matchbox Diary. We will continue to build our writing skills and will be working hard to improve our spelling, grammar, punctuation and handwriting.

In Maths, we continue with our number work to develop our knowledge on the 4 basic functions and will strive to learn our 2, 5 and 10 times tables off by-heart.

In Science, our new topic is Everyday Materials. We will be using our scientific knowledge to follow and make our own investigations to help us develop a better understanding of the materials we use and that are around us.

We will have two lessons of PE every week. We are fortunate that we have the fantastic opportunity to be coached in Basketball by a Newcastle Eagles player and have another coach coming in to help us in our Multi-skills this term. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in on a Monday for the week ahead.

Thank you for your continued support
