'Jellyfish' Year 2

Welcome to Jellyfish!

 

The subjects being looked at during the first half of the Summer Term 2019 (Term 5) are below.

 

Each pace plan tracks when particular areas of learning will be in focus across a term.

See below for this half term's plan.

 

SATs

Year 2 SATs will be completed throughout the month of May.  We have gathered some resource packs that you may find useful for practising the skills they have learnt this year.  Any additional support you can provide at home would be greatly appreciated.

 

We worked in groups to design, make and decorate our castles.  We learnt about the features of castles in our history lessons and included these features in our designs.  What features can you see?

 

In February we visited the National Marine Aquarium and learnt lots of fascinating facts!  Tell your family any facts you can remember!

 

What can you remember about our trip to Buckland Abbey?  Tell your family any facts you can remember!

 

Reading
Reading will be a main focus in Year 2 and your support at home is greatly appreciated.  The types of questions you can ask your child when they read to you can be found below; these questions will develop their understanding of the texts they are reading.  Some useful websites about helping your child to read can also be found below.

 

Spelling
Spelling tests take place on a Wednesday.
 
Spellings for Term 5 are below.

 

Maths
From the beginning of the Spring term, the children complete a times tables test each week.  They have 10 minutes to complete as many questions as they can.  There are lots of ways to support your child with learning their times tables; teaching them any games, 'quick tricks' or other strategies you know will help to increase their fluency and recall, and support their learning in other maths topics.

 

  • The times tables tests in Term 5 will also include related division facts.  The following links show you examples of these tests.
For further information on other maths methods taught in our school, please see the Maths Calculation Policy on our Maths Curriculum webpage.

 

In May, the children will be undertaking their end of Key Stage SATs.

 

For suggested opportunities to practise maths skills at home, please see the websites below.
