Autumn is well on its way now and we are busy practising our Harvest festival in readiness for our performance. If your child brings home words to learn then if you could practise them at home then that would be fabulous.
We have been enjoying learning about Victorian inventions including Thomas Edison’s lightbulb and Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone. In Science, we have been focusing on different materials and their properties. In RE, we will be learning about Judaism during this half term.
The children are looking forward to our trips to the Shugborough Estate to further their learning. If you have not yet sent in your donation and slip to school please do this asap.
Thank you to those parents that are reading at home with their children, it is extremely important for their development. Children should be reading a few pages a night but some children haven’t been reading at all over the last couple of weeks. Please help us to tackle this issue and develop a love of reading.
Also just a small reminder that children need to have their coats in school every day please, regardless of the weather forecast. Our weather is so unpredictable and we are finding that many children are not bringing their coats to school.
If you have any questions regarding our curriculum, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the year 2 team. J
Attached below are lists of words which children should be able to read and spell by the end of Year 2.
