Mr Neilson

Welcome to Class 2

Please find this half term's timetable, new curriculum overview and newsletter below.

I have been so pleased with the progress that the children are making in school and also the effort that is being put into homework, which reinforces and develops the skills we have been learning at school. Thank you! Please do be sure to keep on top of their reading at home and sending in PE kits as well this half term.

In Literacy we will be using the book Traction Man is Here by Mini Grey to help us write all sorts of texts. The themes of the book are toys and adventures so the children will surely have lots of ideas to share! In Maths we continue to look at two digit numbers and different operations. Maths tests will now not just be times tables but could also be addition and subtraction. Children in Year 2 at this stage should be working towards knowing number facts to 20 fluently.  For example:

3+7=10, 7+3=10, 10-3=7, 10-7=3,

13+7=20, 7+13=20, 20-7=13, 20-13=7,

3+17=20, 17+3=20, 20-3=17 and 20-17=3

In Geography we will be learning about Manchester before looking at other places in the world and in RE we shall continue to learn about sacred books and stories. In Science we will be learning about plants and for Art the children will be looking closely at shapes, patterns and designs in buildings. If the weather holds out then we shall soon be walking around Collyhurst and Ancoats to examine different buildings.

We also welcome Miss Cummings to our class this half term. Having both Miss Cummins and Miss Cummings will be sure to encourage us all to speak clearly!

Do check the website each week for more about what we've been learning in school. If you have any questions or anything you'd like to discuss, please see me at the start or end of the day.

Thank you,

Mr Neilson
