We hope that you and your children had a very enjoyable Christmas break and we would like to welcome everyone back to the beginning of the Spring term.
We begin this term by visiting Coventry Motor Museum. This will be a super start to our cross-curricular called Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We shall be finding out about who built the first motor car and aeroplane and we will continue to read and share fiction and non-fiction texts as starting points for our writing. We are continuing to focus on spelling, punctuation, grammar and applying our phonic knowledge, alongside writing a recount about our trip, fact files, reports, book reviews and creating our own stories.
In Maths, we are continuing with the four operations, finding fractions of amounts and working on problem-solving and reasoning activities using multiplication and division facts. We are also continuing with time, position, money and 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be practising our 2s, 4s, 5s and 10 times tables.
In Science, we are exploring materials around us. We will be finding out about their uses and features and will be using materials to create our own mini shelters out doors.
For more information about our learning this term, please click on the Spring Term Curriculum Overview.
Our PE sessions are: Thursday afternoons.
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
Children in Year 2 will continue to receive regular reading homework alongside using Reading Eggs, RM Easimaths and mini home learning projects. Our focus on reading continues and it is a requirement that children read each night.
If you have any queries or concerns we are both available at the end of each day should you wish to discuss anything with us.

Year 2 enjoyed a ‘Royal Wedding’ celebration day. We all dressed up in red, white and blue and learnt about a traditional church wedding. We also designed wedding dresses, commemorative mugs and wedding cakes. The school cook made us delicious cake to eat too!
Year 2 have visited Warwick Castle and had a fabulous day. We saw first-hand what a castle really looked like and went in the Great Hall to see the weapons, armour and shields that were used a long time ago. We experienced an Archer shooting arrows, the trebuchet working and birds of prey flying through the air.
In the Kingmaker exhibition we learnt about life long ago and how Knights prepared for battle.
Spyro – the Bearded Dragon came to visit year 2.
Year 2 created fabulous Lighthouses for their home learning.
