Welcome to Year 2

 

Welcome to Year 2 and the Spring term!

 

Miss Watkins and Mrs Hampton-Joyce are the class teachers in Year 2. We also have Miss Chadwick who will be working as an Associate Teacher.

There are also other adults who also work in our team. We are taught by Mrs Savin and Miss Cheetham every Thursday for part of the day. We also have Miss Tetley and Mrs Coates (Teaching Assistants) and Miss Alam and Miss Thompson (Associate Teachers) who work with us during the week.

 

Information 

This Year we will visit the school library on a Friday – please remember to have your library book on this day. School reading books will be changed weekly during Guided Reading sessions.

We are timetabled to have PE every Wednesday and Thursday, but please have both your indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day, as plans may change!

Home learning is sent home on a Wednesday, due for the following Monday. Spellings are sent home at the start of the term and will be tested in groups of 5 each Wednesday.

 

Spring Term  – Imagine

Our theme this term is ‘Imagine’ and our learning will be influenced by a range of exciting new texts. We will develop our understanding of the books and imagine a world very different to our own! Our inspirational texts for this term will inspire our learning across the curriculum.

Through our English learning we will continue to develop our story writing skills and consider the narrative the stories follow. We will also consider different points of views when writing, for example writing diary entries, becoming journalists when writing newspaper articles and writing instructions to help George create the most marvellous medicine! Our Science topic is ‘Living things and their Habitats’ in which we investigate animals and habitats in our local area as well as considering those further afield. Our Maths learning this term will focus on developing our understanding of multiplication and applying this to begin to understand division as well as fractions. We will also continue to revisit strategies for addition and subtraction and practise these through arithmetic and problem solving questions.

There will be lots of exciting learning going on in Year 2 this term, please visit our blog or follow us on Twitter @GorseyY2 to keep up to date with our discoveries.
