Year 2 Rabbits
Welcome to year 2 Rabbits
Welcome back! My name is Miss Harlowe, class teacher for one of the year 2 classes at Ingrow Primary School. I would like to welcome you to year two, the 'Rabbits' class. Supporting learning within the classroom we have Miss Lowndes, who will be supporting the teaching of literacy and maths.
If you would like to discuss your child's progress or have any concerns regarding your child, I am available each Wednesday, after 3.00 pm and by appointment at any other time, you can also catch me in the playground.
This term our main focus, in Literacy, is based on The Great Fire of London. We will be finding out what happened at this time and looking at why the fire spread so quickly. We will be writing newspaper reports and diary entries to improve our writing skills. In our Creative Curriculum we will be learning about how life was different in 1666 as well as creating our own timelines. In science we will be focusing on materials and will be carrying out some exciting fair tests!
In Numeracy we will be focusing on addition and subtraction of numbers up to 100, looking at different methods to do this. The children will also be working on their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables. We will practice these regularly and you could help your child by encouraging these at home.
How You Can Support Your Child at Home:
All children are given a book bag which needs to come to school every day. It is a good place to store reading books, spelling books and any homework.
Reading at home only needs to take ten minutes and should be a fun and relaxing time. Don't worry about reading the whole book in one sitting, talk about the pictures, experiment with funny voices and make predictions based on what you may have read during a previous read.
Maths homework will be sent home weekly and related to work completed in class. In addition to this spellings will be sent home each week and tested every Friday.
PE kits are needed on Wednesdays and Fridays but it is a good idea to have them in everyday.
Reading books are changed each Tuesday and Thursday.
Spellings are tested each Friday.
Please continue to help your child to read by reading with your child everyday.
