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 – Travel and Transport/Safari

Summer Term – London’s Burning

                      

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?

What we will be learning this Spring Term

This term our History topic is transport and travel. We will be travelling back in time to find out what types of transport was used in the past and how transport has changed throughout time . We will be learning about the spitfire which was designed by Reginald Mitchell who was born in Stoke-on-Trent. We will also be designing and making our own moving vehicles.

Science

In science we are following on from learning about animals and will be finding out about the types of habitats they live in.

Year 2 Class Trip!

On Thursday 8th March we are going on a class trip to Conkers Discovery Centre to learn more about habitats and find out about food chains. Letters will go out to parents this week so keep an eye out.

The cost of the trip includes entry to Conkers, the Mud Monsters workshop, 4D Cinema experience and cost of the coach! We are all super excited!

Art Exhibition 2018!

On Tuesday 27th February the children will be showing off some of their fabulous art work which will then be available for parents to buy. We have been busy practising our painting techniques in the style of Wassily Kandinsky to recreate our own versions of his famous painting ‘Circles’.
