Year Two

 

Welcome to Year 2’s class page.

We aim to provide the children with an exciting and engaging curriculum with each term focused around a theme.

 Below we will share information about our curriculum and class routines.

We will also share photographs of our work throughout the year for you to see!

             

Our Creative Curriculum

Autumn Term – Famous Florence

Spring Term – Let’s go on Safari

  Summer Term – London’s Burning             

Upcoming class trips

On Monday 18th December the children in Years 1 & 2 will be travelling to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre to watch a live performance of ‘Dear Santa’.

We ask that permission slips and payments are given in as soon as possible to either class teachers or to the office please.

Home Reading

Reading helps children with their knowledge, understanding and language. The children are taught to read in school however it is important that you encourage your child to read at home daily and listen to them read a couple of pages of their book.

Please can parents also sign the yellow diaries so the children can be rewarded for their efforts.                                                

Spellings

Each week children will receive 10 spellings from the Year 1&2 National Curriculum to practise in class and at home. Please help your child to practise their spellings as they will be tested each Monday.

In class we use the spelling shed app which the children really enjoy playing.

This can be downloaded (£2.99) from the App Store if you have access to an iPad at home.

It’s really easy to use. Children can play on the Year 1&2 spellings or you can input our weekly spellings into the Your Lists at the bottom of the main page!

Meet Tibbi!                                        

Tibbi is our class cuddly who will go home each weekend with a different child. We would like the children to write about what they have done with Tibbi in Tibbi’s diary and attach photographs where possible.

Have a look at Tibbi’s Journey so far…..

I wonder who Tibbi will share his next adventure with?

Florence Nightingale

In History we have been learning about Florence Nightingale and how she helped soldiers during the Crimean War.

Izzah dressed up as Florence and was telling the children all about how she improved hospital in 1854!

Ten things in a Wizard’s Pocket

In English we have been looking at poetry and learning about adjectives through the poem ‘Ten things in a Wizard’s Pocket’

Our own versions of the poem were so good that they are now on display in the school corridor!

Big First Aid Lesson

On Friday 3rd November we watched the ‘Big First Aid Lesson’ live and became super first aiders! We are now have the knowledge to treat burns, what to do if someone is choking and if someone requires an ambulance.

Not now, Bernard

In English the children have worked incredibly hard to re-write one of their favourite stories.

Their writing is now on display in Year 2!

It’s amazing!

Parents are welcome to come in and look at how hard the children have worked.

R.E  

In R.E this half term our focus will be sharing our lives with Jesus, Mary, the disciples and Saints.

We will also be looking at the gospel value of beingLearned & Wise’

Our Year 2 Class Assembly will take place on Wednesday 22nd November. We hope parents will come along to see.

KS1 Nativity 

This December the children in Years 1 & 2 will be performing a Christmas Nativity. Some of the children have been given speaking parts which they will need to practise at home. Letters have already been given out regarding costumes.

If there are any worries about costumes please pop in and speak with Miss Hilton.

P.E

The children will take part in two P.E lessons per week. Swimming kits need to be in school on a Wednesday and P.E kits every Monday. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school on these days.

Check out what we have been up to in P.E below…

Geography

In geography we are learning about different continents and countries. Each week we visit a different country and find out what it’s like there.

So far we have been to Tanzania in Africa and the U.K, Italy and France in Europe.

Next week we are heading to New York in the U.S.A!

 Here we are busy writing factfiles about the different countries we have learnt about!
