Welcome to Year 2
Each week the expectation is that your child reads for at least 10 minutes per night and that either he/she records a comment in the ‘Home contact’ book. Now they are about to go into Year 3 , your child does need to record their own reading comments.
Please could your child reinforce their knowledge of the properties of 2d and 3d shapes by comparing the similarities and differences of 2d and 3d different shapes.
Please could your child complete the attached sheet about the uses of everyday materials.
Show and Tell:
There is a rota for ‘Show and Tell’ as follows:
Monday 19th June – Asia –
Monday 26th June – Africa – a range of materials in the home
Monday 3rd July – Europe
Monday 10th July – Antarctica
Monday 17th July - Oceania
Friday 16.6.17 : Spellings
We are revising the ‘al’ spelling of the ‘l’ sound found at the end of words next week. Please reinforce this and encourage your child to make a list of these words. Possible examples include ‘animal, metal, final’.
We will also focus on the spelling of the continents – Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania, Antarctica and countries of the UK - England, Scotland , Ireland and Wales
