Autumn Term 2017
The title for this half term is Once Upon a Time. We will be using Fairy Tales to inspire the children’s imaginations before looking at Castles and Medieval history in Norwich and the rest of the UK. The children will be mapping locations, testing materials and trying out medieval food and sports.
Children will continue to use the reading scheme in Year 2, as they did in Year 1. They will have the opportunity to change their books by themselves (with a little adult supervision!) as often as they are ready to. When children are ready to change book bands, they just need to have this checked by an adult.
Children will continue with daily phonics sessions. This half term we will be embedding phase 5 phonemes before moving on to learning spelling rules in phase 6. They will also be learning the Year 2 common exception words.
Weekly homework will consist of reading and spelling. Spelling homework will be set each Monday, to be completed by the following Monday. There will also be some longer projects based on our topic work
PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need to have their indoor and outdoor kit with them, especially with our current changeable weather!
