Our Year 2 topic for the Autumn term is ‘Let’s Remember.’ Children will learn about how soldiers lost their lives in the wars and how we remember them now. We will be asking children to make poppies at home as their homework project to help make a Remembrance display in school. (We may ask for these poppies to be sent in as photos on dojo’s this year but we will still use them in school on display)
To support our learning of The Great Fire of London, we have been developing a range of art techniques by using colour, pattern and texture to express our thoughts and creativity. We achieved this by layering a range of coloured tissue paper to create the image of a burning inferno. We then uses lines and shape to create wooden houses in the style of 1666.
Please find attached the powerpoint that was shared in our year 2 ‘meet and greet’.
In view of the homework letter that was sent to parents last week, we have amended our homework days.
Homework will be set on a FRIDAY and will need to be returned the following THURSDAY.
Homework will always be spellings (from the current unit)
Maths (relating to our weekly work or times tables)
Reading (at least once a week to an adult who records this in children’s reading diaries).
Homework will be set every Monday and due in every Friday. It will consist of weekly spellings and maths work linked to our lessons for that week.
Reading should be happening daily (where possible) and a comment left in your childs diary.
We have been using this great game in class to help us learn about the great fire of London. Learn some more by playing it as homework.
Just a polite reminder that homework goes out on a Monday and is due back in on a Friday. The homework the children receive will consist of some spellings and a Maths piece of homework linked to their work in Maths that week. Children will also have a spelling test on Friday morning.
Also, please try and ensure you read with your child and comment in their diary at least once a week. This can be a few pages of their current book as it really helps to build their reading fluency and confidence in reading. We do really appreciate your support.
