The year 2 team for 2020/21 consists of Miss Cox (2E) and Miss Cunningham (2F), along with our teaching assistants Mrs McGrevey (2E), Mrs Richardson (2E) and Mrs Carty (2F).
This term, year 2 will be visiting fairy tale land. The children will be reading, memorising and adapting different fairy tales including lesser known tales in shared reading and writing sessions. Each week, the children will also be learning about the countries of the United Kingdom and animals from around the world.
Underneath we have uploaded information about the maths unit the children are currently looking at. The vocabulary and key learning strands are detailed on this page. This week's unit is all about money.
The children have all really enjoyed learning their parts and performing The Stickman by Julia Donaldson this half term. They all put on an absolutely fantastic performance.
Year 2 have been busy exploring the text The Elves and The Shoemaker this half term. At the end of the story, they made the elves a new set of clothes to thank them for their hard work. As such, year 2 decided to do the same. Starting with looking at items of clothing and the seasons in which the clothes are usually suitable for. The children have then designed and improved their own model clothes range. This week, the children made their designs a reality using different colours and materials to make their final product. They are extremely proud of themselves, and so they should be.
This half term, the children have been learning about habitats and micro habitats. This week, they took their learning outside. In the wooded area, they found plenty of bird's nests, over turned logs with plenty of mini beasts living underneath including centipedes and woodlouse, as well as spider webs across branches. They had a great time exploring and finding these while plotting them on an aerial photograph of the school.
