Year 2 - Bond

Welcome to Bond Class


Class Teacher:  Mrs Hopla

Class TA: Miss Jones



We have a jam packed Autumn term with lots of exciting learning.

To kick off we will be reading: Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper.

Cat, Squirrel and Duck are three friends who make pumpkin soup together every day. They always do it together and the same way, until little duck thinks he's got a better idea...

This is a fun story with lovely illustrations. The tale is more about friendships and allowing your friends to try new things and sharing.

Also: Oliver's Vegetables by Vivian French.

Do you like chips? Oliver won't eat anything else - until he plays a game with his grandpa. Whatever vegetable Oliver finds in the garden, he must eat!

This is a splendid book to read with super illustration by Alison Bartlett.

Both of these books will be used to inspire the children's creative imagination and develop their writing skills.




Our aim in maths this term is to build on the skills learnt  in Year 1 and reinforce number 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.



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
