Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘look, say, cover, write and check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling books are kept in school bags. You also now have a Spelling Shed login (in the front of your child's yellow reading diary) for use to further practise spellings at home.
In Year Two, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year Two. Please download the texts and practise retelling them. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Our Class Country is Rwanda!
We will be learning all about Rwanda. We will investigate where it is in the world and find out facts about what it is like to go to school in Rwanda.
- Can you find Rwanda on a map?
- Search for a map of the town Kibirizi - what features can you spot there?
- What continent is it in?
- What facts can you find out about Rwanda?
Autumn One - History
The History topic for Autumn One is called 'Flight'. The children will consider the significance of flight as a development in human history and investigate significant individuals connected with this change.
Who was the greatest pioneer in the development of flight? Why is this significant? How has flight changed over time? What was the contribution of the Wright Brothers and Amy Johnson to national and international achievements?
For the Fantastic Finale, the children will visit the Bournemouth Aviation Museum and will share what they have learnt in a Class Assembly.
