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 every night.

  Parents  you must sign the yellow diaries so your 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. As one of their weekly homework tasks we would like the children to practise their spellings by writing sentences in their homework books.

Please note that the children will have their half term spelling assessment in Week 8 which will be 20 of the spellings covered over this half term at random.

 

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.

Tibbi has arrived from Kefalonia and is ready to start his journey…

……..I wonder who Tibbi will share his next adventure with?

Star of the Week

    Our Star in Year 2 is Marya. For putting 100% effort into everything she does and for taking so much pride in her homework. 

P.E

 Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E  kit in school on the Monday of every week. Year 2 will also be going swimming every Wednesday, starting the 10th September, girls please remember to bring swimming caps.

What we will be learning in the Autumn Term

This term our topic focus is History and we will be learning about Florence Nightingale. Carry out your own research at home to see what interesting facts you can find out about her life as a nurse.

Science

In Science we are going to be learning about animals and humans. We will be looking at animals and their offspring, the basic needs of animals and humans, how humans stay healthy and the lifecycles of animals and humans.

Year 2 Class Trip!

On Tuesday 9th October we visited Brampton Museum where we met Florence Nightingale and learned more about her life. The children behaved amazingly and we had so much fun dressing up in Victorian clothes and making Florence Nightingale style lanterns.

Check out our fab photos below.

Parents – Please keep checking our class page as we will upload new information and display work that the children have done regularly.
