Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

The Jolly Postman

Welcome back!


We hope you have all had a relaxing week off for half term.

For Autumn 2, we will be looking at the stories of The Jolly Postman. We will be looking at the different letters written throughout the book, as well as writing our own responses. 


We will continue to make ourselves more aware of the world around us by watching the BBC Newsround and reading First News. This will support our speaking and listening skills as well as helping us gain knowledge by identifying countries, continents and oceans. 



PLEASE NOTE: Our PE has changed to Tuesday and Wednesday


Miss Bond and Miss Davies


The reading challenge will continue this year. The children need to read at least four times a week for ten weeks to receive their reading badge at the end of term. Please record when you read in the Partnership Book as then we also know when to change the book.

Doodle Maths and maths homework

We will be giving out maths homework booklets based on the work we have been doing in class. These will go out on Monday to be returned the following Monday. Please complete this in the lined book as it gives children room to do their corrections if needed.

However, if you feel that your child/ren will continue to benefit from using doodle maths, please do keep up the good work!
