Year 2 Reminders
School Uniform: We kindly ask for all school uniform to be labelled with your child’s name.
Water Bottles: Children may bring a bottle of water for use in the classroom. Please make sure this is labelled.
Reading Diaries: In Year 2, children will be encouraged to read, read and read some more! As well as reading in school, children should read at home at least four times a week. When children read at home, an adult must write in the Reading Record book. Each time they read they will earn DOJO points. The children are encouraged to become more independent and to change their own reading books when they have read them.
Homework: Please support your child with their homework each week.
P.E.: We will have PE on Thursday and Friday. Children should come to school in full PE kit on these days. This is either the Moorhill Tracksuit or a plain black tracksuit with a plain white t-shirt and trainers. School jumpers or Moorhill hoodies may also be worn. Please ensure that any earrings are taken out on these days.
In the autumn term our Topic is ‘Once Upon a Time’. We will be learning all about traditional castles and knights and we will visit Warwick Castle. You might like to research castles with your child. For example, you could visit the library or research on the internet about where local castles are located, or even learn about where they are on a map. We would welcome any research notes, posters or pictures that your child has worked on with you!
In the spring term, our topic is ‘The Jungle Book’ where we will be learning all about the jungle and the rainforest. We will develop our geographical skills when we learn about countries and continents, including what the weather and climate is like there. You might like to research animals that live in the jungle.
In the summer term, our topic is ‘All at Sea’. We will be learning all about the coast, holidays in the past and about the history of the RNLI. You might like to find out about coastal places in the UK or about the famous people linked to the RNLI such as Grace Darling.
If you have any questions, concerns or worries please speak to a member of the Year 2 team, using the contact us link on this website or through Class Dojo, where we will be happy to help.
