Welcome back, I hope you all had a good holiday and are ready for Year 2! Our topic this term is Splish Splash Splosh. This topic is lots of fun; we have some excellent texts to use with the children and some exciting enrichment activities planned.
In English our initial focus will be on pencil grip and letter formation. We will be starting to learn how to join our letters. We will also be checking our work to make sure we are; writing in proper sentences, using capital letters correctly and using correct punctuation. We will be reading and writing in a variety of different genres.
Place value will be our starting point in Maths. We will be learning about numbers; what the digits represent, what is one more, one less/ ten more ten less. We will count on and back from different starting points and count on and back in 2s, 5s and 10s.
As I said our topic is Splish Splash Splosh; Topic work will all follow this theme and where possible cross curricular links will be made in other subjects.
I cannot say enough how important it is to read at home with your child; it has a huge impact on their learning, especially their reading and writing.
This is a fantastic topic. If you have any questions or concerns please do come and see me.
