Welcome to Year 2!
Hello and welcome to Year 2!
We have a fun and busy year ahead of us where we will continue to build upon everything we have learnt so far. In addition, we will have many opportunities that will help us to grow and become more confident. We will enjoy learning new topics and learning the Year 2 Curriculum in preparation for the KS1 Assessments in May.
The following information and resources are to support you and to keep you updated on our learning journey in Year 2.
Year Group Team
Year 2 have their PE lessons on a Tuesday and a Friday. On PE days it is expected that children come to school in their PE kit. This is a plain white t-shirt, plain blue tracksuit bottoms or shorts and plain black/white trainers or plimsolls. Children should also ensure that they do not wear earrings on PE days for health and safety reasons.
Homework is set on Google Classroom every Thursday. Maths homework is generally set on the My Maths website. Practice of the 2x, 3x, 5x and 10x tables can be done on the Times Table Rock Stars website.
Each week children will be provided with a reading and library book to support their reading at home. It is recommended that children read for at least ten minutes/day.
All homework should be completed and returned by Tuesday. Homework set on Google Classroom should be handwritten and completed in the homework books provided.
What are Year 2 learning this week?
The children have been learning all about instructions in English. They enjoyed following instructions to make a jam sandwich and then eating it. Delicious!
In Maths, we used base ten to support us to compare numbers using the greater than and less than sign.
In Science, we have started our unit of animals, including humans. We have sequenced the stages of a human life cycle!
The children have been reflecting on the Holy Spirit and made decorations. They observed the energy of the wind blowing the decoration and used this metaphor to support their understanding of the Holy Spirit.
This term we have been learning about significant people. We researched Florence Nightingale and discussed all her fantastic work!
We used iPads to take photos of people, buildings, close-ups, distance shots, action shots and selfies.
