Class 8 Year 2 2018 - 2019

Mrs Steele

Welcome to Class 8's Home Page!

Welcome Back!

This half term during our History topic, we will be learning about ‘The Great Fire of London’. This Great Fire of London unit will teach the children about the key events of the Great Fire of London, and help them develop an understanding of the ways in which we can find out about the past through discussing primary sources. In doing so, we will be introduced to Samuel Pepys and his infamous diary. The children will have the opportunity to increase their awareness of the past by comparing and contrasting past and present-day London, as well as looking at how life was different in the 17th century.

During Maths, we will continue to initially focus on Shape before moving onto learning about Fractions. Alongside these units, we will be focusing on learning to tell the time. It would be very beneficial to your child’s learning if you could begin to practice telling the time at home.

Our P.E day will continue to be a Tuesday, please remember your kits. Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due to be handed in the following Wednesday. Weekly spellings will be put into children's Spelling Practice books every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. It is very important that these are practised regularly alongside the Year 1 and 2 common exception words – a copy of which can be found in the ‘Files’ section of this page. Please remember to read with your child at least three times per week and record this in the Reading Diary.

Further details of our topics and objectives for this half term can be found in the attached Curriculum Map. 

Many thanks for your continued support.
