Year 2

Teacher : Mrs Moynihan
TA: Mrs Fleetwood / Mrs Rawlings


Welcome to Year Two



There is a slight change in homework this term.  I will be giving out homework on a Wednesday and ask that it is handed in first thing Monday morning.  It will be related to work covered in class and is meant as a chance for the children to consolidate their learning.  If homework is not completed I will work with those children during their break/golden time to help them complete the task set.  This work is in addition to the regular reading at home.



The children have swimming on Tuesday mornings this term.  Please make sure that your child has their swimming costume/trunks and a towel in school every Tuesday.  If you are concerned about wet hair please provide your child with a swimming hat.  The class will have games lessons with Mr LeClerc on a Thursday afternoon.  Please make sure that your child has their PE kit (named) in school.  There may be occasions when the children take part in PE outside so please make sure that your child has trainers, jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt in school for when it is cold. 



Our science topic for this term is everyday materials. The children will be investigating the properties of different materials. In computing the children will be learning how to code as well as spend time on creating and editing images.



Our first topic is ‘How has Nelson Mandela helped to make the world a better place.’ We will then move on to learn about transport through time.



We will be learning about the reggae sound in music and in RE our topic is religious leaders.  Our art will be linked to our topic and in DT we will be designing and making an air powered car. 



The children will be completing their Statutory Assessment Tests in May.  If you would like any further information on this then please pop in and see me.


Thank you
