St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 1

Welcome to Year 2!


For the first two weeks of Term 1 we will be getting to know each other and learning the routines of Year Two. The teachers have planned a variety of fun and exciting activities including painting, baking and games, all designed to help children build relationships with each other and their class teachers. Staff will spend time getting to know your child and finding the best ways to support them.


As writers, we will develop our understanding of punctuation, spelling and letter formation to write simple sentences. We will be using the story 'Where The Wild Things Are' to go on a journey, and using our STAR values to write a recipe for 'How to be a St Anne's Citizen'.


In reading, we will be building our phonics knowledge and wider vocabulary to read a variety of texts with fluency and expression.  We will also be doing lots of work on reading and writing our red words. These are all the words that we can't stretch out to read or write, so we just need to learn them.


As mathematicians, we will be using different resources, including blocks, diennes and counters to explore and secure our knowledge of numbers to 100 and calculations within 20. 


Our Enquiry this term is called 'What can my puppet be made of?' and focuses on learners becoming Scientists and Engineers. The children will select from and use a range of tools and materials to make a 'Wild Thing' hand puppet, performing practical tasks such as cutting, joining, sewing and finishing. We will then use these puppets to retell our stories!


We will also enjoy being athletes in our PE lessons and musicians in our music lessons.
