KS1 SATS meeting for parents
WELCOME TO YEAR 2
It has been an exciting start to 2017 for Year 2.
During this creative curriculum topic we will visit the Tate Britain gallery where we will study artist’s impressions of weather. As well as recording the daily weather in our weather diaries, we will be using inspiration from the gallery to create a mixed media art piece portraying different types of weather. Using our observations of the weather, we will represent this data in a table and a bar chart in Maths and Computing. As part of the PE curriculum, we will be learning different gymnastic techniques, team games and tennis skills. Circle time is a weekly opportunity for us to express our thoughts and share our ideas and we are looking forward to learning new skills through story and play. In addition, Year 2 are excited about learning how to use the features of a letter in order to creatively write some of our own. We’ll also be learning a variety of poetic techniques and can’t wait to get stuck into traditional tales.
Now my thoughts are already turning to how to get ready for SATs in May. Spag.com will soon be available to practice grammar questions at home and we shall be sending some sample practice papers home over Easter.
Please make sure you continue reading regularly at home, review spellings and learn times tables [2x, 3x, 5x and 10x].
