Welcome everybody to the Year 2 section of the website.
Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSAs: Miss Awan
Student Teacher: Mr Pearson
If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask one of the Year 2 team.
If your child is at home self-isolating, work will be provided via Seesaw for your child to complete. This will reciprocate the work being covered in class. Please check Seesaw daily for updates and tasks set.
Reading at home
For the time being, your child will be given a reading day. On your child's reading day they will need to bring their reading record and reading book into school. Each child will read with an adult and a new reading book will be provided. Please see our Seesaw page for your child's reading day!
We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child, but do ask that you make every effort to read at least 5 times per week with them, and make a comment in their reading records.
Reading at home doesn’t always mean their school reading books, it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, kindle books to instructions of a board game.
This half term we will be going back to our four operations: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division. We will be having lots of practical lessons where we can investigate how we might solve a problem. Year 2 are also encouraged to use Numbots to increase their fluency with basic Mathematic skills. You only need to play 5mins!
Please ensure your children are continuing to access their TT Rockstars & Numbots account through the app/website.
Our class reader this term is The Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith
Max is a hedgehog who lives with his family in a nice little home, but it’s on the wrong side of the road from the Park where there’s a beautiful lily pond and plenty of juicy slugs, worms and snails!
The busy road is dangerous but Max is determined to make his way across. If humans can do it, why can’t hedgehogs?
His first attempt ends in a nasty bump on the head and, when Max tries to speak, he realises his words are all mixed up. He is no longer a hedgehog but a hodge-heg!
Still determined to fulfil his mission, Max discovers the best way to cross the road – with the help of the lollipop lady and some careful detective work . . .
This Half term we will be planning and carrying out some investigations!
We will be using practical materials to investigate some of our questions. What makes a fair test? What can we change? What are our predictions? ...
Seaside Holidays- Then and Now
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, Oh I do like to be beside the sea... How lovely would it be to visit the seaside? This term we will be looking back at how seaside holidays were an important part of growing up in Great Britain. What is your favourite thing to do at the seaside?
Seas & Coasts
This term we will be building on our knowledge of continents from our Autumn topic. We will be learning about what makes a coast and the names of the different seas that make up our planet. Why not test your skills by playing this game? https://online.seterra.com/en/vgp/3188
Art & Design
Sculpture- Antony Gormley
This term we will be learning all about Antony Gormley and his famous sculptures. We will use his work to inspire some of our own human sculptures.
Sir Antony Mark David Gormley, OBE (born 30 August 1950), is a British sculptor. Some of his works include; the Angel of the North, a public sculpture in Gateshead in the North of England, Another Place on Crosby Beach near Liverpool and Event Horizon, a multi-part site installation which premiered in London in 2007, around Madison Square in New York City.
Design & Technology
FRUIT SALAD! Year 2 this topic is going to be a tasty one...We will be learning how to make a fruit salad. First we need to make sure we understand the hygiene and safety rules before we start making and tasting our fruit salads. What fruit might you use?
Easter and Jesus as a Friend
This term we will be finishing off our last topic. We will be thinking about the Church building. We will look at what is special about The Church and how it is important to Christians. We will also be exploring the Easter story and take part in some art work competitions.
Our P.E days this term are Mondays and Wednesdays.
Please make sure your child comes into school wearing their full P.E kit.
Water bottles & snacks
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
Children can purchase bread sticks at the start of each half term (see Miss Brown in the school office) or bring a healthy snack for break time.
