Welcome to the Pallister Park Year 2 page! Here you will find all our latest news and current topic work.
This term we will be covering:
Our new topic for the second half of the Spring term is Street Detectives. This will involve lots of walks exploring our local area and the environment around school. It also covers the computing curriculum for KS1.
In Maths we will be focusing on shape and time and recapping previous work ready for SATS.
Forest School will continue this term, the children are enjoying this exciting opportunity so far and still have lots more to cover including making dens, shelters and learning to use hand tools safely. Remember the children will need to bring warm clothes to School with them. Keep an eye out for the dates!
World Book Day is on Thursday 7th of March and in line with our topic we ask for the children in Year two to dress up as a character from any Roald Dahl book.
The Year 2 SATs are approaching quickly, taking place week beginning Monday 20th May. It’s vital that your child attends school on time every day this week.
We do not set weekly homework for your child in Year 2 however we do ask that you read regularly with your child at home to help them reach their full potential across all subjects. Your child will also have spellings to practise and will need to know numbers to 100 and their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.
If there is any additional support we believe would benefit your child specifically we will send this home inside their book bags.
We have PE on a Monday but may also have the opportunity to take part in PE activities at late notice on other days. Please bring your child’s PE kit on a Monday and we will return it every Friday.
PE kit consists of a red t-shirt, black shorts and PE shoes.
Please remember to bring your child’s book bag, planner and reading book each day.
