Welcome to Year 2
Teacher - Mrs Lee
Teaching Assistants - Miss Newberry & Ms Hales
In English our main focus will be on traditional tales. They are great tools for teaching children about story development, conflict resolution, the development of characters, heroes and villains and simply broadening their imagination. Here are some examples of well-known fairy tales you can share with your child in preparation for our English writing topic: Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Little Mermaid, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Princess and the Pea.
We will also have daily phonic lessons to help narrow the gap and get the children up to speed from during the school closures.
In Maths we will be learning about place value and the four main number operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and money.
In Science we will be learning about materials and their uses. Your child will explore the useful properties of materials with a range of investigations involving absorbency and flexibility.
Our main topic for Geography is our school locality. The children will use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of the school and the key human and physical features in the surrounding environment.
In RE during the autumn term we will cover four main topics: Beginners - Creation, Signs and Symbols, Judaism and the Nativity. We will have gospel and assemblies in class for the time being,
In RE we have been learning and understanding The Story Of Creation. Last week we really enjoyed painting and drawing the story.
