Year 2 - Mrs Holstein

Meet the Year 2 Team!

Welcome back to the new school year!                  

This term we will be exploring the topic of London.

Within Literacy, we will be basing our English work on the lovely collection of Paddington bear books. The children will learn with Paddington about the historical landmarks within London as Paddington visits each place, such as Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London in the stories. We will be using these stories to base our own narrative writing on.  

We will also be looking at learning how to write a recount of a place we will visit– hopefully a visit to a bakery or fire station later on in the term.

 In maths, the children will be learning about the place value of numbers ranging from tens/units (T/U) to thousands, hundreds, tens and units (TH/H/T/U). The children will look at carrying out addition and subtraction calculations using 2 digit numbers.

Paddington bear books that will be shared this term!


Our homework is set weekly on Friday and is to be returned to school on Monday mornings. You can expect to receive  3 pieces of homework weekly, Literacy, Maths and Spellings. Ms Rickards runs a homework club on a Thursday, for children who have not completed their homework, or those who need a little help.

Our reading books should be read as often as possible and brought into school every morning. As little as 5 minutes a night can help your child so much!


Other Information

PE this term is on Wednesday and Thursday. Please remember, your PE kit should be in school all week.
