Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Wall is our Year 2 class teacher.

Mrs Wadlow and Mrs Monk are the teaching assistants in our classroom.

 

Term 4

Our topic this term is 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures'.

We are going to be getting very mucky and messy during this topic - as the title suggests! We will be exploring many different materials to develop our knowledge of their properties and how we can manipulate them by rolling, squeezing, mixing, pulling and tearing. This topic will also allow us to talk about things that have happened and suggest reasons why. 

 In English we will be exploring the story of 'George's Marvellous Medicine.' We will be thinking about the medicine he gives his Grandma and we will develop our own yucky recipe to give! We will also be looking at 'Flanimals'...they may even invade our classroom! We will create our own Flanimal and focus on using descriptive language. In addition to all of this, we are going to be entering the 500 word story competition where the children will write their own story. It will be submitted and winners will be chosen from across the country.

In Maths we will be looking at position and direction, telling the time, statistics and measure. We will learn the skills practically to then apply them in different contexts. We will continue practising our four operations too and completing our Pokemon times tables challenge. 

 

In Science we are going to be looking at the world around us, sorting things that are living, dead or never been alive. We will identify different habitats in our local environment and look at contrasting habitats. From this, we will learn about how living things adapt to be able to live in these habitats. We will also be looking at life cycles.

Homework

It is our aim to provide regular homework, which prepares your child for an activity, reinforces work in class or gives the opportunity to develop essential skills through open-ended exploration on a particular theme. It will also give you the opportunity to see what your child is currently learning in school and become involved in this.

Homework is set on a THURSDAY and is due in the following TUESDAY.

Pupils are expected to read daily and bring their contact books with them to school each morning.

Timetable

P.E is on a Friday. Please ensure that pupils have their full kit in school and that items are named clearly. P.E lessons are often outside, so please make sure that pupils have the appropriate clothing! 

Forest School is alternate Tuesdays, starting every first Tuesday of a new term. Forest School will be after lunch, so pupils need to come to school in their uniform as normal and bring their kit with them. Please ensure that all items are named clearly.
