In Year Two we are working extremely hard in preparation for our KS1 assessments. To help your child achieve their best please would you listen to them read, help them with their homework and make sure they practise their spelling for a short while everyday.
This half term we are looking at Meerkat Mail.
Why don't you share the story with family members?
This is a fantastic book gives you an insight into the life of Mr Meerkat who
decides to go on vacation to find out if he can fit into other families.
A great read with outstanding images that can be shared with the entire family.
This Half Term:
In English we are going to be using the stimulus of Meerkat Mail to write exciting narratives, postcards, letters and character descriptions. The children will be introduced to 2A sentences, conjunctions and basic punctuation to reinforce learning from year 1.
We have an exciting start to year 2!
In Maths we are going to start their learning journey with basic counting skills. Children we will learn to practice counting in steps of 2,5,10 and will be introduced to the four main operations, where they will manipulate numbers practically using base 10.
