Beech

Welcome to Year Two!

 

Welcome to the Beech page of our school website. Here, you will find class information, important dates for your diary and useful links to use at home smiley

 

We have lots of exciting learning to look forward to across the school year. Make sure you keep a look out as we will be posting photographs of the fun we are having at school!

 

Thank you, 

Mrs Turner x 

Week beginning 21.9.20

 

This week we are beginning our topic 'Indian Spice'!

In Geography we will be locating India on a map, researching key features of India and creating our own map of India, including a key.

In Science we are beginning to learn about materials. We will be investigating what materials we can see around us and learning about their properties. 

In English we will be looking at Traditional Tales and their key features. We will be retelling a traditional tale and using adjectives for character and setting descriptions, focusing on handwriting, capital letters and full stops. 

In maths we will be focusing on place value and recapping on some of our Year One learning.  

 

Please ensure you read with your child every night, for at least ten minutes and are encouraging your child to use the reading strategies sent out on the letter. Please remember to send their reading books in on a Monday with signed diaries, otherwise we are unable to send new books out on a Wednesday.

 

Thank you, 

Mrs Turner smiley
