“Educating our children with the skills they need to live fulfilling lives.”


Year 2 Learning Letter

Autumn 2

Fictional writing will be ongoing and the children will be encouraged to use descriptive language to enhance their stories. The children will also be encouraged to read non-fiction books and write in this style, using the correct features. Punctuation will focus on the use of capital letters and full stops, ensuring finger spaces are between words.  Poetry will be linked to our topic work.

Please practice handwriting with your child using our handwriting script.

Individual spelling books will be introduced during this half term. Please help your child learn their spellings and ensure they bring their spelling book in school on a Monday & Tuesday.

Please read daily with your child and discuss their book with them, asking them questions as much as possible. This helps them focus on the meaning of the text.

During this half term Maths will focus on money. Children must be secure in their knowledge of the British coins and where possible notes. Please look at these as much as possible at home. Try to set up role play situations such as shops where they could use them as we know that getting out to the shops with your children to practice paying for things is difficult at the moment.

 Many Thanks 

Miss Hird and Miss Smith
