Ms Hudson, Mrs Preston, Mrs Williams and Mrs Brant would like to wish you a warm welcome to Year 2! 

Our PSHE this term is continuing with Economic Wellbeing and we will also be looking at transition into Y3!  In RE we are learning about

In English, we are doing short pieces of writing and recapping some of the genres from throughout the year. We will also be using the ‘Read to Write’ scheme.  Our text is ‘Rosie Revere, Engineer’ by Andrea Beaty. We will be writing our own invention stories.

In Maths, we are looking at measurements including capacity and weight. We will be continuing with the theme of money and looking at how we can solve two step problems.

We alternate between history and geography each half term. This half term, we are doing Geography and the theme is the seaside. We will be going on a trip to Southport promenade and beach.

Likewise, art and DT alternate each half term. This half term we are looking at and replicating some of the ideas of the artist Andy Goldsworthy who uses natural materials in his sculptures.

Science is completed every week and we are continuing to learn about ‘Living things and their habitats’ and discovering things in our local environment which are living, dead and have never been alive. We will also look at food chains and discover how animals get their food, how they are linked by what they eat and how animals depend on each other to survive.

ICT is also taught weekly and we are discovering how we can present ideas in many different ways on the computer, including concept maps, quizzes and fact files. You will find our computer rules in order to keep us safe, on the website.

Our PE lessons will be on Thursday with PDS. Please come into school in your PE kit. Don't forget to remove/cover any jewellery (including earrings) and make sure your hair is tied up if it is long.

In music this half term, we will be continuing to learn the recorder and revisit all the musical concepts we have looked at this year, hopefully using this knowledge to create compositions of our own. We will send recorders home to practise in the first week. They weren’t quite ready last half term and I didn’t want them to learn incorrectly. We are so pleased with their progress and they are loving it.  

Reading books are changed on Thursdays. Please read at least 3 times a week and sign the yellow log book. There is no need to leave a comment but thank you to those that do.

Spellings are sent home on Thursdays and tested on the following Friday. Please continue to practise common exception words at home.

Thanks for your support and please contact us on Class Dojo or speak to us with any problems.
