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
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.
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 the last week of each half term. They will be 20 of the spellings covered 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!
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 Hari, for putting in more effort and for making incredible progress in reading and in maths!
Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E kit in school on the Monday of every week. Year 2 will have their P.E slot on Thursdays and will be taught by our PE specialist Mr Sigley this Spring Term.
What we will be learning in the Spring Term
This term our topic focus is History and we will be learning about transport. We will be creating timelines so we can see the chronology of transport across the ages and will be comparing transport from the past to our modern day methods. We also take a look at the Spitfire plane as part of our local history.
In Science we are going to be learning about habitats. We will be finding out about world habitats, local habitats and microhabitats. We will be conducting an experiment to find out how penguins survive in the freezing artic and researching meerkats to find out how they survive in the blazing, hot Kalahari Desert.
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.
