Dear Parents/ Carers
Welcome to Class 2, I am looking forward to a great year and I hope your children are too. We have, as usual here at St Mary's, a packed and motivating year to help your children develop through this step on their primary school journey. Communication is key to getting the best out of the children, I will communicate with parents as often as I can and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Here is an overview of the first Spring half term.
Our topic is 'Amazing Animals'.
Literacy - This half term the children will be learning about The Lion King. Children will be showing their amazing writing throughout the topic.
Art - Children will be looking at and having a go at using mixing, shade, tint and warm and col colours in their paintings.
Science- We will be exploring animals, including humans.
History - The Great Fire of London - A event beyond living memory.
Religious Education - We will be focussing on Easter, the Pentecost and Reconciliation.
Computing- We are logging onto Purple Mash and completing Animated story books tasks.
Numeracy- We will be focussing number, multiplication, division, length and height, shapes and fractions.
P.E is now on Tuesdays and Wednesdays please can you ensure that your child comes to school dressed in their P.E kit.
Reading- is very important it not only develops a love of reading but also develops imagination which is essential for story writing and also their ability to communicate effectively. Please read with your child for around 20min every day.
Phonics bug - Please log in to phonics bug daily to access the books linked to our phonics focus in class. These books are to be seen as their home reading books. Log in on this link:
Spelling-spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
Time tables(Year 2) Number bonds to 10 and 20 (Year 1) - Both of these are important to help build fluency within Maths.

Please make sure that all belongings are clearly labelled with your child's full name as we are getting a number of items left daily that are unclaimed or are taken home by other children in error. Many thanks for your help with this.
This is more important as we get warmer days, so please ensure ALL jumpers, cardigans and hoodies are clearly labelled.
Please do not hesitate to speak to me if you have any questions throughout the year.
