. Homework . Your child will continue to have 3 pieces of homework per week; spellings, reading and maths. Their maths homework will continue to consist of their counting and multiplication tables booklet and a computer based/book based task. As a school we are striving to improve basic maths skills to enable them to apply them to more challenging tasks. Practising the recall of the 2s, 5s and 10s times tables (multiplication and division facts) is the focus throughout Year 2. Please support your child to complete the multiplication based activities in their booklet at home little and often. Children will be assessed in school each week and staff will highlight when each award has been completed. Reading Your child will be given up to two books per week, but we recommend they keep each book for at least two days. When reading with your child, please encourage them to talk about what they are reading and apply reading strategies, e.g. context clues, sound it out, reading to the end of the sentence to see which word would make sense. Please make sure you sign your child's reading record when they have read or finished their books. Please write what page they have read up to so we can continue reading their books during our reading sessions. We welcome comments on your childs progress and their achievements. Rainbow Reading Each time your child reads a book e.g. their library book, reading book or a book from home, they get a sticker for their reading bookmark. Please only do this when they have finished their book. When they fill their bookmark, they get to choose a prize and move onto the next colour. The further along the rainbow your child gets, the better the prize!

We will be recapping the seasonal and weather patterns in the United Kingdom and comparing them to those in Kenya. Finally we will be learning about hot and cold climates in the world and identifing where the equator is in relation to them. Art PE PSHE

This half term we will be learning about the artist, Edward Tingatinga to support our Africa topic. We will be studying the patterns, colours and shapes he uses. The children will be choosing their own African animal to create their own painting in the style of Edward Tingatinga. PE sessions will be on Wednesdays and Fridays for both classes. Your child will need their PE kit in school every day. In our indoor PE (Fridays) we will be developing our dance skills. We will be using our bodies to show different colours and emotions. For our outdoor lessons (Wednesdays) we will be developing and perfecting how to use tactics in a game and working as a team. In PSHE we will be learning about money. We will be discussing where money comes from and how it is used for different purposes. We will also think about the role money plays in our lives and how to manage our money through spending and saving. We will develop our saving skills by discussing how to keep money safe. We will consider our choices when spending money and what influences our choices. S.H.I.N.E. This half term we will be starting with a recount. The children will write about what they did in the holidays. To support our African topic, we will be reading and analysing The Ugly Five by Julia Donaldson and Lila and the Secret of Rain by David Conway using our reading skills. Using these stories the children will be creating characters, setting descriptions and writing their own African adventure story. This term we will be using and applying all the skills we have learnt so far this year. Reading Targets Over the next couple of weeks we will be reviewing your childs reading targets. If ready, your child will have new targets they need to work on both at school and at home. Please see your childs reading targets in the front of their reading record, refer to this when reading with your child. Remember to tick the targets if your child is applying them in their reading with you at home. Mathematic s Science Computing RE As we approach the end of the year well be revisiting our learning from throughout the year. We will be telling the time using our counting in five skills and drawing hands on clocks to represent different times. We will also use coins to make amounts and know how to make amounts using different combinations of coins. Our knowledge of the four operations will be developed further by solving problems using materials, arrays and using the inverse of the operation. In science, we will be learning about animals and plants. We will learn how to group living and non-living organisms and think carefully about what makes a good habit for each species and why. We will develop our understanding of food chains and how animals obtain their food. We will also be looking at the life cycle of a plant. We will grow our own plants, study them and observe them. As part of the Espresso Coding scheme our unit this term is Buttons and Instructions. The children will continue to create codes for buttons to move an object or picture and how to debug and fix incorrect codes. We will continue to look at online safety and how we can use computers to communicate with others. In RE the children will be continuing to explore why churches, mosques and synagogues are important to their worshippers. We will learn about the different religions and which place of worship is important to them. We will continue to look at the stories Jesus told and how they tell Christian people to live.
