To start this term off the whole school are looking at the works of William Shakespeare. William

Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the

English language. The children have been reading Romeo and Juliet and looking at the life of William







We start every morning with a phonics session where we will continue to learn new sounds.  Stuart,

our class minion helps us to learn and remember new sounds. This helps us to learn to read words as

we are able to blend phonemes together for reading and to segment them for spelling. When we learn

a new sound we think of our own words with the new sound, for example 'oa' and 'boat' or 'coat'. Then

we practise putting the word into a sentence. In phonics it is important that we practise all the

grammar skills that we have been taught in English. We always make sure that we use capital letters,

finger spaces, appropriate punctuation and adjectives. We are learning to use cursive handwriting! 




In the Summer term we will be reading Hansel and Gretel, Meerkat Mail and many more

fantastic books! The children will have opportunities to develop their skills through writing

character descriptions, recounts, diary entries and so much more! There will be

opportunities to see the children's work displayed in the classroom and on the

Year of Books display in the cloak room.







Convince Me Maths continues in the Summer Term. Convince Me Maths is designed to improve

progress through using a CPA (Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract) approach. The model encourages a

deeper level of thinking and broadens children's understanding through higher level questioning.

Additionally 'Big Maths' will be used every Friday to allow children to increase their mental fluency

in addition, subtraction and multiplication. In Year Two we need to know our 2, 3, 5 and 10 times

table, these are practised on a daily basis.


We have started by looking at graphs. Children are learning to use graphs to read and

                                                            interpret data. We will be learning to read scales, follow directions and tell the time to the nearest

                                                            15 minutes.
