Year 2 - Bond

Welcome to Bond Class


Class Teacher:  Mrs Hopla

Class TA: Miss Jones



The second part of the Autumn term is once again full of new and exciting learning.

To kick off we will be reading: Zoo by Anthony Browne.

Dad, mum and two brothers spend a day at the zoo, looking at the animals in the cages - or is it the animals that are looking at them?

This is an outstanding book to read and explore. Each page will surprise you every time you look at it! .Look very closely at the illustration, there is so much more than just a pretty picture to see!



The book Zoo  will be used to inspire the children's creative imagination and develop their thinking and writing skills.




Our aim in maths this term is to build on the skills learnt  in Year 1 and reinforce measure: exploring money  and number:  multiplication and division, to build competency by taking the approach of: Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract.

Concrete - children have the opportunity to use concrete objects to help them understand what they are doing.

Pictorial - alongside this children will have/use pictorial representations. These can help the children reason and solve problems.

Abstract -  concrete and pictorial representations should help the children develop a better understanding of abstract methods.


We are lucky to have a football coach in on Thursday building on the children's football skills. 

( This will take place inside and out. Please make sure your children have the correct clothing and footwear in school)



PE will be on  Thursday and Friday

Please remember to always have your PE kit in school and suitable footwear.

White shirts and black shorts.

Dark coloured track suits may be worn outside






Maths: A page will be selected and noted on the door each week that needs completing.

Reading: Read everyday at home. Read anything. Please sign your child's book.

Values: The new value for December is  RESPECT. Work together as a family and show how respect is portrayed at home.  

Spellings: A set of spellings will go home with your child each week and a test will follow.

Good luck winners!!
