It's official! Nansledan School is an Ofsted GOOD school!

Curie Class Y2

Our class is a team - we are discoverers, educators, leaders and learners of the 21st century!
Our class is named after Marie Curie. Curie is remembered for her discovery of radium and polonium, and her huge contribution to finding treatments for cancer. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize - she won two in her lifetime! She was also the first woman to become a Professor at the University of Paris. In World War One, she helped put x-ray machines in ambulances. Throughout our time in Year 2, we will learn lots about Marie Curie - her incredible discoveries and impressive achievements for women in science.

In Year 2, a healthy morning snack of fruit or vegetables is provided to every child daily.
This term, we will be developing our understanding of all aspects of key stage 1 punctuation and grammar with an in-depth study of key terminology and information relating to grammar and punctuation rules.
We teach reading through Little Wandle and VIPERS. We continue to develop our reading skills, including decoding, prosody and comprehension. We encourage a love of reading through engaging in a range of different book types and genres. We need your support with this and ask you to read 5 times a week and record this in your child's reading record. Please ensure your child's book and reading record are in school every day. Books are changed on a frequent basis.
In maths, we continue to develop our fluency, reasoning and problem-solving skills. In Year 2, the children begin to learn their 2, 5 and 10 times table. Regular practise on TT Rock Stars and Numbots will support their recall of key number facts.
Our P.E. days in Curie are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure we have a full, labelled PE kit in school.  We will send this home to be washed at the end of each half-term.
Please see our termly homework grid on Class Dojo.

Additionally, pupils will be sent home with a weekly spelling list, these include Year 1 and Year 2 Common Exception Words.
