Welcome to Year 2!
Class 2S is taught by Mrs Sweet with Mrs Spedding. Class 2P is taught by Miss Pascale with Mrs Nimmo.
This half term, English lessons will focus on sentence level work such as using a range of punctuation, conjunctions and different sentence starters. We are reading the Gerald Durrell story ‘The Fantastic Flying Journey’ and using this to inspire the children in their writing. In Maths, we are continuing to work on subtraction, as well as covering measures and money. It would really help the children if you could talk to them about different coins and let them have some experience of using them. During the afternoons, they will learn about Animals in Science and Kenya in Topic. In Art lessons, we will learn how to shade and sketch animals.
During the second half term, the children will learn about Explorers and Climates. We will look in particular at Sir Ernest Shackleton. We will use his journeys and an animated story about a boat to continue developing sentence level work in English lessons. In Maths lessons, we will focus on 2D and 3D shape, as well as continuing to work on calculation strategies. In Art lessons, we will learn about painting techniques and we will look at work by the famous artist Georgia O Keefe.
