Snapshots of our learning!

Here are some snapshots of the fantastic learning we have been doing in Year 2.

We have been very busy in Year 2 so we can't list everything we've done! However, some of our top highlights from Year 2 so far are;

  • Visiting the London Transport Museum to end our 'From A to B' topic.
  • Dressing up as a significant person from the past for our 'People of the Past' entry point!
  • Learning about the Great Fire of London in English.
  • Gymnastic sessions with our fantastic coach Sam!

 

These are only a few pictures of the amazing learning we do everyday in Year 2! Ask us to tell you about what we learnt at school today.

People of the Past

Our topic this half-term in Year 2 is People of the Past.

We will be learning about significant people from the past, and exploring why they are important and the effect they had on how we live today. We will explore a range of people from the past who are significant and are remembered for different reasons. Children will explore constrasting backgrounds, lives and achievements.

Class 2D - Great Fire of London

As part of our work on The Great Fire of London, 2D have been acting out how King Charles I came to the rescue by suggesting that they use dynamite to blow up houses to make fire breaks.  The children took the parts of King Charles I, his soldiers and houses.  We then followed this up by writing newspaper reports in the September 1666 edition of The London Gazette.

Homework

Please find below the homework for this half term. Children should choose one homework to complete each week and hand in their homework books on a Thursday. Homework will then be marked and returned on Monday.

Reading records must be bought to school daily, whether they have read or not. This allows us to record any comments from our guided reading or 1:1 reading sessions. In Year 2, children are asked to change their own reading books when they first come into school.

Bug Club

Purple Mash

Weekly spellings

Children will be sent home with new spellings every Friday. They will then have the weekend to practice them, and will be tested on a Monday morning. Spellings will link to an area of our learning in class.

PE

Children must have PE kits in school during term time. We will send PE kits home at half term for them to be washed. 

This half term we are lucky that we get a gymnastics session with Sam and a P.E session with Mr Kimberley or Miss Benbow.

Our PE days are;

2D- Gymnastics on a Wednesday and Outdoor PE on a Friday.

2M- Gymnastics on a Wednesday and Outdoor PE on a Thursday.

2SW- Gymnastics on a Wednesday and Indoor PE on a Friday.

Year 2 Curriculum Targets.

In Year 2, your child will be working towards the band 2 targets above. However, it is also important to consolidate their learning from the band 1 targets (see below) too.
