Year 2 Curriculum

Welcome back to school Year 2!

Our topic this term is all about the Seaside.

Through this topic we will be learning about the Geography of a local seaside town and our local history of the Hull Fishing Industry.

Some important dates for this Term are:

  • KS1 SATs – Week commencing 20th May 2024
  • Phonics Screening Check Resit – Week commencing 10th June 2024

PE lessons this term will be outside. Please ensure your child has outdoor P.E. Kit with them on the correct day, including trainers and a jumper.

PE days are:              2M – Monday                 2S – Wednesday

It is important to encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times per week to receive their regular reader stamp. Remember that reading any book is fantastic, not just your Phonics or Fluency book. We would love to see these recorded in your reading records!

Homework will be given out weekly on a Friday to be brought back to school on the following Friday. The homework will be linked to Reading, Writing and Maths, to help complement our learning within the classroom.

Spellings will be given out on a Friday, with your homework, ready to practise for the following week’s test, so please keep hold of these to practise with until our Spelling Tests on a Friday.

Merits will be awarded each week, and we will invite parents & carers to come and join our Merit Assembly via Marvellous Me, so please ensure you are logged in to this.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss Macadam & Miss Searby
