Welcome to Year 2

 

Welcome to Year 2 and the Spring Term 

MrRosell Hughes, Miss Wilson and Miss Hooker are the class teachers in Year 2. Mrs Coates (Learning support) will be working across both classes.  

Spring Term  – Creativity 

 We are really excited about this term in Y2 as our theme is ‘Creativity’, We will be exploring what this means, from the creativity of scientists asking questions and solving problems to the imagination of writers and artists. Of course, we will be doing lots of creating ourselves starting straight away in week 1 with Arts Week – painting and printing work based on contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. 

We have some fantastic books on our bookshelf this term which will inspire our work across the curriculum. The wonderful Roald Dahl provides the terrible Grandma in George’s marvellous medicine for us to get our teeth into for character descriptions, while our books ‘Wonder’ and ‘The Whisper’ have words and beautiful illustrations to evoke new imaginary worlds and narratives. In Oliver Jeffers, ‘How to Catch a Star’ we will consider how creativity means looking at things in different ways and talk about how when we make a mistake, or don’t succeed first time, this makes us more creative than ever! Likewise, Ada Twist is a brilliantly strong female character who is always asking questions and trying out new ideas

There will be lots of exciting learning in Year 2 this term, so please visit our blog or follow us on Twitter @GorseyY2 to keep up to date with everything we get up to!
