The Summer Term is a very busy one for the children in Year 2 as they are preparing for their Key Stage One SATS in May. We will be practising our Reading, Writing and Mathematics skills every day. Remember to practise at home too!
In RE our Come and See topic is Spread the Word as we prepare to celebrate Pentecost and explore the role the Holy Spirit plays in our lives. The other topics we will be are studying this term are Rules and Treasures.
In English we are developing stamina for writing and learning about a variety of different genres including stories, poems, letters and information and instruction texts. We have daily Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling lessons to develop our understanding of grammar, sentence structure, expanded noun phrases, past/present tense, different word endings, subordination and other features of written Standard English.
In Maths we are learning about shape, space and measure, position and direction and continue to develop our skills in place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions. It would be really beneficial if you could let your child help out with money at the shops and practice telling the time at home. Children will continue to complete rapid recall challenges of the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, along with doubling and halving numbers to 20 and number bonds to 20.
Online games to help you practise your multiplication and division facts.

PE is taught by sports specialist Mrs Ward on a Monday and Wednesday and could be indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. We will be practising our running and athletics skills in preparation for Sports Day.
