Year 2

I hope that you all had a lovely summer break! Our topic this term is 'Seaside'.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday so please send your child into school wearing their PE kit on these days. 

If children have a sporting club after school they should come to school in their school uniform bringing their PE kit in a bag to change into at the end of the school day.

Please keep looking at our blog to see what we have been up to!

Termly Topics

At Brill School, English, Maths and Core Skills are taught through focused daily lessons; usually in the morning. For other lessons we have in recent year moved away from narrow subject based teaching and have developed a curriculum that is imaginative, child focused and cross curricular.

Year 2’s thematic topic units for this year are:

Useful Information

Reading books: The children either have a colour banded reading book suited to their reading ability to read or a book from the library. Our daily Guided Reading lessons will give children the opportunity to explore a variety of texts as a class,  strengthen their core reading ability and develop specific comprehension skills.  

Pencil cases: Please do not send your children in with pencil cases. We will be providing the children with all necessary equipment while they are here. 

Spellings: We will cover the core spelling patterns from the National Curriculum as well as tricky and common use words in class. Further details on our approach to learning how to spell can be found on the school Literacy page.

Supporting your child's learning at home 

  • Reading with your child every night and discussing the story and the characters.
  • Select texts from our Year 2 recommended book list  to read with your child.
  • Having the first 100 High Frequency Words and the next 200 available when your child is writing at home. 
  • Practising times tables regularly to improve recall.

Year 2 have had a great start to the half term! To start the week off we began to investigated the different things around us and categorise them into living, never living and once loving in science. We then came across some letters that had been cut up! Year 2 had to see if they could put them back together again using the correct layout. To end the week we investigated the Indian culture! Overall Year 2 has a fantastic week !

What an amazing half term Year Two have had back! We have done so much this half term from recreating Vincent Van Gogh artwork by using texture and mixing paints to pretending to be solid and liquid gases in science. I hope you all have a fantastic half term off and look forward to seeing you all back!

Year Two have had a fantastic week this week. They have explored a new text, by creating some small drama pieces. In maths they've learnt how to use a number line and were able to identify missing numbers on them. Finally, in art the children had the chance to experiment with different types of texture that they might use in their final art pieces. Overall it has been a brilliant week!
