Welcome to Arrow Class

Welcome to the Summer Term. This term we are extremely busy in Year 2. Our topic is ‘Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!’ We will be focusing on looking at beaches and seaside around the world and comparing them to places in Great Britain. We will also be looking at Seasides holidays in the past.

Maths

For our maths this term will be revisiting place value, multiplication, division, shape, position and direction knowledge to ensure that these objectives are embedded using the WhiteRose Scheme of work. Children will also need to know their 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables by the time they leave Year 2.

Homework will be set every Friday on Teams. This will either be English, Maths or Topic work and spellings. Homework will be handed in the following Wednesday and the children will have a spelling test each Friday.

Friday Frog Club

Every Friday, the children in Arrow Class take part in Friday Frog Club, where time is provided for the children to test their number bonds, multiplication tables and division facts in a fun and engaging way through pledging their allegiance, singing the school song and by answering a range of questions in a five minute deadline. All classes celebrate their achievement and progress by hopping onto their next lily pad and receiving a sticker to celebrate success.
