Summer 1

Ecclesfield Teachers - Monday, April 15, 2019

Welcome back to a new term at Ecclesfield!  We hope you enjoyed your break and are ready for Summer 1.

 

Our topic this half term is ‘The Twits' which is a book written by Roald Dahl. During this topic we will be learning all about the famous author, and studying his book in great detail. 

 

During our English learning, we will be using our class novel 'The Twits' to inspire our learning this term. We will be studying the characters in the book, the language that Roald Dahl uses, and comparing this book to others which we have read.

 

In Maths, we will start by focusing on the 4 operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  We will then move onto money, which will include making an amount, counting a variety of coins and giving change. We will also focus on time, in particular, telling the time to 5 minutes.


Homework: Like last term, we will be setting homework at the beginning of the term. This will include reading (remember at least 4 times a week please!), spellings, maths and topic. If you are unsure of anything, please ask your class teacher. 

 

Please ensure you have your PE kits in school every day.

 

PE days: Wednesday and Friday

Reading Mornings: Monday and Thursday

 

REMINDER: Throughout May the Y2 children will be taking their SATs which will include 2 reading papers, and 2 Maths papers. It is important that no holidays are booked during this time, however if you have booked a holiday during May (or have any other planned absence), please come and tell your class teacher asap when it is so we can accommodate SATs accordingly.
