General Class Information
Reading books are changed once a week, once your child has read their book at home 2 time . Please ensure that you comment in their reading record each time they have read to you.

Homework is sent out each Friday and we kindly ask that it is returned the following Wednesday. Children who continually return incomplete homework will miss their break time to complete the activity. Children who return homework on a Monday will receive a Mills Dojo as a reward. We appreciate your continued support with this.

PE is twice a week on a Thursday. Your child will participate in a dance lesson and sports lesson every week. It is expected for them to have a full PE kit kept in school at all times.

Targets are sent home every half term. Please work through these targets with your child.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can make an appointment via the office or alternatively speak to us after school or via our Twitter pages.

Autumn Term 1

Maths
This half term in year 2 we will be focusing on place value. Some of the highlights of which are comparing two numbers, learning about hundreds, tens and units and continuing to learn our times tables with the 3s

English 
Our class story is Jack and the Beanstalk this half term. We are going to be talking and learning about what language we use to describe different features of a character. We will also be looking at writing instruction this half term and the importance of using bossy verbs.

Science
In science we are very excited about introducing the children to the Planetarium during science week at the end of October. Before that we are taking our first look at seasonal changes and investigating what wildlife we can see at the beginning of Autumn, talking about hibernation and why animals choose to do this.

ICT 
We will be looking at basic programming and debugging this half term with a topic called ‘We are Astronauts’. In this we will be looking at apps and computer programs that need the children to input commands in a sequence to move their avatar across the the screen.

Topic
This half term we are looking at how the council should spend money on to make Hattersley a better place? We are taking an active role in this by holding our very own debate. We will research each proposal and then decide through a debate which project we believe is worthy of the funding.
