Class Two

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

Welcome to our final half term in Year 2. Children have worked incredibly hard throughout the SATs period and have each made significant progress that they should be proud of. We aim to continue working hard this half term as we consolidate our learning.      

Our new topic ‘An Island Home’ is a Geography – based topic which will explore life in another locality. Children will make comparisons between their own lives and those on the Scottish Isle of Coll.

In English we will read The Lighthouse Keeper and Katie Morag stories to learn more about island life and children will build on existing skills to write their own island story. Through Art and D.T. children will paint pictures in the style of Mairi Hedderwick and build a model lighthouse.  We have a seaside trip booked to St. Mary’s Lighthouse to further support our learning in this topic.

In maths, children will consolidate their learning through problem solving and investigation tasks. We will also ensure they are secure in place value and calculation.

Children will continue to take spellings home on a Friday to be tested the following Friday.

As always, if you have any problems or queries please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Thank you,

Mrs. Aldridge
