Year 2 - Summer 1
During Summer 1, Year 2 are studying Street Detectives as our main topic. This topic allows the children to become more familiar with their local environment, its rich working class history and how it has developed over the last few decades into the town they know.
We will be having 2 books this half term, Nell the Detective dog alongside Emil and the detectives. These books focus on detective skills and have fun, engaging stories which will be sure to excite the children and promote reading for pleasure.
We are having a real focus this half term on improving our reading fluency. This is essentially the speed at which the children read and can absorb the information. As a result of this, the children will be required to read at least 3 times per week at home, with this being recorded in their reading diaries. All the children are so enthusiastic about their reading and this is a feeling we are wanting to harness in Year 2.
Also this term the children will be taking part in the KS1 SATs. They will be working hard to complete the assessments in a fun and relaxed environment.
As last term, PE will continue to be on Mondays and Tuesdays. Homework will be given out on a Friday to be returned to class by the following Thursday.
