Welcome to Year 2: St. Clare
Teacher: Miss Hammond
Thank you to everyone who has returned their school trip letters.
Please remember that our class trip is on Wednesday 4th December 2019. We are going to the V&A Museum and your children will need packed lunches.

St Clare class assembly will take place on Tuesday 10th December at 9.05am in the infant hall. Please come along to support your children. See you there!
PE kits need to be brought to school every Monday and taken home and washed on a Friday. That way kits will always be available when they are needed.
Spellings are given every Monday. Please learn these for a test the following Friday.
Reading books are changed weekly. Please read with your child each night and ensure reading books are always in your child’s book bag when they come to school.
Homework is also given on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday morning. Please see the class teacher if you have any questions about the homework. Please see the attachment for this weeks homework.
The main focus at the beginning of Year 2 in Maths we will be assessing your child's knowledge of their numbers. They need to be secure with their 2's, 5's and 10's times tables and they also need to be able to count and write numbers to 100.
We now take part in Guided Reading, with this your children are in smaller groups and they will take part in different activities daily. Examples of theses include:
Reading with Teacher
Reading with TA

During this topic we will learn and think about the clothing worn in different culture and throughout history. We will have plenty of opportunity to compare clothing from history and other cultures.
In science our topic this term is Materials.
We will learn about different types of materials and their properties. As well as this we will do lots of investigations and experiments.
