Welcome to the Year 2 class page for Toucan class (Ms Anness), Tamarin class (Mr McSmythurs & Miss Harris) and Tiger class (Miss Phillips).
This term we will be reading the story of Stellaluna and using non-fiction books to research bats. Please encourage your child to find out one or two interesting facts at home. In maths we will be continuing our work on arithmetic, as well as solving missing number problems, multiplication and division.
Reading - all children are expected to read at home at least three times per week. It is essential that you continue reading with your child to not only check their reading accuracy, but also that they have fully understood the story through discussion.
Spelling - there will be a weekly test every Friday. A full downloadable list of the 'common exception words' for children to learn is available below. The spelling bee will also be held later this term.
Times Tables - Children are expected to know the 2, 5 and 10 times tables in full by the end of year 2, as well as starting to learn the 3 times tables. They will have a weekly test every Wednesday - we will be starting with the ten times table in Term 1.
