Welcome to Nichols Class – Year 2
Class Teacher: Mrs Quinton (Mon, Tue, Wed am) and Mrs Wiles (Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday)
In Term 3 we will be exploring the big question, Why were Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong very brave people? This is an exciting cross- curricular topic where we will be learning about the history of exploration. Our English work is linked to our topic. We will be reading and discussing two books by Simon Bartram, Man on the Moon: A Day in the Life of Bob and Dougal’s Deep Sea Diary.
In maths we will continue to follow the Big Maths approach and maths mastery. Our focus this term is on multiplication and division.
In maths we will be doing our Beat That Challenge on a Wednesday and our Learn Its on a Friday. These sheets will be photocopied and sent home so that you can work on them with your child. Please work with your children on these challenges.
Every week we will be sending home five personalised spellings for your child to learn. At the end of term we updated our spelling assessments with the children. We will continue to send home five spelling words with each child on a Monday, to be tested the following Monday. The Year 1/2 common exception words that your child brings home are words that they did not spell correctly in the spelling assessment. Some children are now able to spell all of the Year 1/2 common exception words. These children will bring home spellings related to particular spelling rules that need to be learnt in Year 2. Please support your child with learning their spellings.
Please remember that PE kits need to be in school all week. Now that the weather is cooler please make sure your child has tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt so that they can stay warm during outdoor PE. Please ensure all uniform and PE kits is clearly labelled with your child’s name. We do not keep any lost property in class.
Please remember that every child needs to bring a filled water bottle to school each day.
Please do let us know if you have any questions at all. After school is always better than the morning for a chat, as the mornings are very busy.
