Welcome to Class 2!



In English this half term we will be continuing work around the dark but this time using the book Funny Bones.

The children will be completing drama, speech, questions and character studies around this book.

We will also be completing activities for world book day which are all based on Fairy tales.

Please help your child to learn their spellings each week and aim to read for 10 minutes every day together.

Encourage your children to change their home-school reading book regularly.

It would be useful for you to ask open ended questions about what they have read.


In Science, this half term, children will explore humans and their young. The children will be looking at how to investigate these ideas.

Help your child research their Science topics using the internet and non-fiction texts.

Ask your children what they have learned in Science and ask them to identify materials around them. 


We will be looking at Safe searching. The children will be using the Digital Primary website.  This is a safe site that is used within school and can also be accessed at home.

If you have a computer and the internet at home help your child to use it safely. 


Children will:

Link sounds to letters, naming and sounding letters of the alphabet

Explore and experiment with sounds, words and texts

Hear and say sounds in words in the order in which they occur

Blend CVC words and recognise common digraphs such as ay, ee, igh, ow, oo, ar.

Use their phonic knowledge to read simple regular words and make phonetically plausible attempts at longer and more complex words. 

Please practise letter sounds and letter formation with your children.  If you would like a list common exception words to practice with your child at home please see me.


In this unit the children will consider the question "Why do we remember Florence Nightingale?" This unit looks at her life, why she went to the Crimea, and what happened as a result of her work. It builds on previous units by focusing on the way of life of a famous person who lived at the time before living memory, and it also contributes to cross-curricular work. The aim is to stretch and challenge all children, regardless of their ability, whilst teaching literacy skills through history. It will provide the children with an in-depth focus so that they will be able to remember it more clearly. 

Ask your children  to tell you what they have learned in school about Florence Nightingale.


Children will:

Looking at shapes, both 2d and 3d shapes and recognising their properties.

They will also be learning how to interpret statistics and comparing different graphs.

Children will then move onto looking at different factions – of both shapes and numbers.

Help your child to learn their times tables and to see the link between times tables and division facts.  Make sure the children know these in any order and have not just learnt to chant them. Ensure that your child completes their Maths homework.


This half term our topic will be Games and basic skills of various games.

We do PE on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit to school.

Other information

This half term the children will be visiting Eureka to learn all about the human body.  


Homework will be sent home on Thursday and should be returned completed by Monday of the following week. It will link with topics taught in the classroom. There will also be spellings to learn and Mental Maths questions for a test.

If your child cannot complete homework at home there is homework club on a Friday dinnertime which they can access.


Reading: All the children will have a guided reading session twice a week where they will read in a book group. They will also take a book home where they can practise reading. Reading at home is very important as it can build on children’s vocabulary and improve their understanding. We encourage you to listen to your child read at least three times a week and record any comments in their reading record book. Please make sure their book bags are returned every day.
