English – Writing

The children will be using pictures to stimulate their writing in their writing journal. We will encourage the children to ensure that they use features of Year 2 writing.
  • write simple coherent narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real of fiction)
  • write about real events, recording these simply and clearly
  • demarcate most sentences in their writing with capital letters and full stops, and use question marks correctly when required
  • use present and past tense correctly and consistently 
  • use co-ordination (e.g. or/ and/ but ) and some subordination (e.g. when/if/that/because) to join clauses
  • segment spoken words into phonemes and represent these by graphemes, spelling many of the words correctly and making phonically-plausible attempts at others
  • spell many common exception words
  • form capital letters and digits of the correct size, orientation and relationship to one another and to lower-case letters
  • use spacing between words that reflects the size of the letters 
 
English- reading
We will start a new book called The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl. We will also be learning some new reading skills as a whole class using ERIC. The children will build their repertoire of different reading skills through the year.
When reading with your child, please use VIPERS when asking them questions on the book they are reading.
This week the children will sit a short reading paper.
Maths
    • to make equal groups
    • to add equal groups
    • introduce multiplication sentences using ‘x’ symbols
    • to make multiplication sentences from pictures
  • to make equal groups  Children will understand that equal means the same/it has to be fair
  • to add equal groups can will add equal groups and use these to help them identify the link between multiplication and repeated addition
  • introduce multiplication sentences using ‘x’.
  • to make multiplication sentences from pictures Children could say there are 5 groups of 1. This is the same as 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 5. Which is the same as 5 x 1
RE
The children will be decorating candles  for advent.
ICT
Our ICT slot is on Tuesday afternoon. We are game testers. During this unit, the children will play and evaluate simple scratch games. We will discuss age ratings and increasing game addiction.
  Art
The children will decorate Father Christmas, ready for the Christmas Fair.
Music 
Ministrings will continue every Wednesday. This week we will play some instruments that belong in the string family.
PE
Our PE slot is on Monday afternoon. We are currently focusing on balance and co-ordination.
Please ensure all children have their full PE kit in school (fully named).
PSHE
We have introduced the children to a programme called Zones of Regulation which we are hoping will help regulate feelings and emotions and offer the children the correct way to talk about their feelings. This week  we will continue to  think of suitable ways to regulate their feelings and match emotions to different zones.
Is your child an author?

Week Beginning 2nd December 2019

Saturday 7th December – Christmas Fair
Thursday 12th December  – Year 2 Christmas Production
Friday 13th December – Christmas Jumper Day

The children will continue to look at features of a recount. The children will continue to write, edit and improve their recount.
– write about real events, recording these simply and clearly
– use past tense mostly correctly and consistently
– use coordinating (e.g. or/and/ but) and subordinating conjunctions ( e.g. when, if, that, because) to join clauses

English- reading
We will start a new book called The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl. We will also be learning some new reading skills as a whole class using ERIC. The children will build their repertoire of different reading skills through the year.

Maths Money

    • to find change
    • to solve two step problems with money
    • to recognise equal groups
  • to find change
    Children will work out how much change they should receive by either subtracting the total from the amount paid, or counting up to find the difference.
  • to solve two step problems with money
    A two-step problem is a word problem that requires two operations to solve it. This means that children must be familiar with the vocabulary associated with the mathematical symbols they are used to, in order to make sense of the word problem.
    An example of a two-step problem involving money: an orange cost 18p and apple cost 32p. How much change would you get from £1.

Children need to first add the total cost of the apple and orange and then take it away from £1.

  • to recognise equal groups
    Children will understand that equal means the same/it has to be fair
