Year 2

21st June 2024

Dear Parents/Carers,

What a wonderful and busy week we have had. Below is a summary of some of the learning we have done this week and new learning for next week.

Religious Education

Topic: Hinduism

We are drawing our topic on rules to a close and next week we will be learning about another faith, Hinduism and in particular ‘Puja.’  If you or anyone would like to come in and talk to the children about this topic from your own experience, please approach us.

Phonics

Next week we will be looking at split diagraphs ‘i-e’ and words that start with ‘th’.

 

Home Learning: Practise these spellings and sentences for a test.

 

Literacy, Design and Technology and History:

We are learning about Grace Darling who was a famous Heroine and lived in a Lighthouse. Next week we will be learning about poems based on Grace Darling.  

Below are some links of the stories for you to listen to from the series of the Lighthouse Keeper. The language and vocabulary are very rich in these books.  Please be sure to discuss some of the new words that you hear and maybe look some of them up in a dictionary to find the definitions.

Home Learning:

Please go on the links to watch videos of other books in the series.
