1st Autumn Term 2019

Welcome back!

I hope you have all had an exciting summer and are ready to start Year 2!

We have got lots to look forward to this half term and lots of new things to learn. Remember to follow our class page on twitter @MissCooper_2C to see all the amazing things we do in class.

The question we are asking this half term is:

“What is it like Down Under?”

In class this half term we will be learning about the following things:

Maths: Place Value, addition and subtraction

English: Non-Fiction and Narrative

Science: Living things


Topic: To be as creative as possible and learn lots of new facts about Australia and the animals.


Homework will be sent home on a Friday and will support learning done in class that week. Children are to complete the homework to the best of their ability. Homework should be handed in no later than Wednesday.


Children in 2C can change their book as often as they like. If they don't like the book, please sign to request another. Nobody likes to read a book that is boring to them!

Please sign reading records in order for books to be changed. Remember to read a little every night. We aim for children to get a new book each week. We can see huge benefits from this.


Spellings in Year 2 are made up of common exception words (tricky words), spelling patterns and topic words. We have a weekly spelling challenge on Friday mornings.

Each term the children will have a bumper spelling challenge where they will spell all Year 1 or Year 2 tricky words, these are in the front of their homework book.


PE in 2C is on a Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on this day. They will need black shorts, a white t-shirt, trainers and a spare pair of socks.

PE kits need to be in school every day as we may do extra PE lesson throughout the week. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term or if they get dirty.


Multi-skills is on a Thursday after school - 3:20 - 4:15pm. If your child has a place in multi-skills they will need to wear their PE kits, but they need to remember to bring them back to school the following day.
