This term we will be very busy learning lots of new things. Here is some information about the things that we will be getting up to but you can find detailed information on all subjects by downloading the 'Curriculum Information for Parents' that is attached below. 



Our English lessons will use the text ‘The Night Gardener’. We will explore the text and use this as a focus for our writing. The two main outcomes will be: To write a setting narrative and write a recount as a diary entry. Grammar and punctuation skills will be taught throughout this unit with a focus on
- Use of capital letters, full stops and question marks and exclamation marks to demarcate sentences.
- Using apostrophes to mark where letters are missing in spelling. 
- Use commas to separate items in a list.

Our Reading lessons use the Steps to Read scheme and these are some of the books that we will be using this term...

Everyone in Year 2 is given a reading book to read at home, sometimes this is a levelled book, an eBook or a book for you to read for pleasure. Practising the common exception words, spelling rules and times tables is something that we expect you to do too.
