We are going to be studying and exploring six exciting topics this academic year. Topics will be explored through all areas of the curriculum. These are:
|Autumn 1 (History)||Autumn 2 (Geography)||Spring 1 (History)||Spring 2 (Geography)||Summer 1 (History)||Summer 2 (Geography)|
|How was school different in the past?||Would you prefer to live in a hot or cold place?||How did mankind learn to fly?||Why is our natural world wonderful?||What were holidays like in the past?||What is it like to live on the coast?|
Key Stage 1 SATs
It is no longer compulsory for Year 2 pupils to sit formal SATs paper assessments. We are as a school still required to complete class teacher assessment judgments. As a part of compiling evidence for our class teacher assessment judgements pupils will complete assessment test papers that are similar to the format of the previous SATs assessments.
Our priority for home Learning is reading. We ask that parents listen to their children read, read with them or read to them a minimum of three times a week. This must be recorded in children's reading records.
All children also have a log in to Numbots and will be set weekly home learning focusing on number fluency and preparing children for further mathematical learning. There will also be weekly Spelling Shed homework set via the Edshed platform - individual log ins are in children's planners.
Each half term there will also be a home learning project which will be linked to our driver topic. These projects will allow children to explore further an element of the topic we are studying and apply what we have learnt in lessons to new information.
Below are some recommended links that will enhance your child’s learning further:
Reading and spelling
Keeping parents informed
Throughout the year, parents will be invited to share their children's achievements in class, listen to the children read, join in with the children’s experiences and possibly volunteer to go on school trips. Our half termly newsletters will be sent home and can be accessed through the school newsletter tab above.
