Year 2

 

Welcome to Year Two!

 

Welcome to the Year Two class page! My name is Miss Greer and I am the lucky Year Two class teacher, children will be assisted in their learning by Miss Duffy. Please take the time to explore our class page and see just how fantastic Year Two are. Don't forget to also check out our 'curriculum' page to find out more about what we are learning this year.

 

This term PE will be taught on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Children will take part in Football lessons on a Wednesday and Games sessions on a Friday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school each week as it is vital for health and safety reasons that children are wearing the correct PE uniform and pumps. PE kits can be purchased from the office. 

 

Children will I’ll take home buster books every Friday for homework. Children are expected to complete 2 pages in each book and return it to school by the following Thursday for it to be marked. Children will also take home spellings each week to practise at home. 

 

A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged. Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased at the main office. Children's reading books will be changed once a week.

Which tights are the stretchiest?

This week in Science we read a poem about a little, old lady who was having trouble with a horrid spider. We decided to test different types of tights to help the lady. We decided after our experiment that the navy tights were the most stretchy because they were the thinnest. We let the little, old lady know she should buy some of these tights so she could easily tie up the spider!

Codeapillars

This week in our computing lessons we have been using Codeapillars to program a path for the Code-a-pillar to follow. It was great fun and we really had to think about the clear instructions we needed to use.

School Fair

This term in our English lessons we have been reading the story Dogger. We found the pictures of Dogger’s school fair to look really exciting so we decided to create our very own fair for Reception and Year One. To begin we decided on the games we would have, we then created instuctions for the games so the younger children would know how to play. We also created some posters so the other children knew when and where our fair was happening. It was a huge success and we had lots of fun!!

Materials 

Our Science topic this term is Materials. We recapped all the different materials we leant about in Year One. We used some silly spinners with materials and objects to discuss if materials would suit the purpose of the object. Some of our favourite combinations were water tables and glass shoes.

Place Value 

Since we have started back this term we have been using lots of practical equipment in class exploring the place value of two digit numbers. We have been finding it quite the challenge using equipment such as numicon, place value counters and deans rods to represent different numbers and solve many reasoning problems. We have been thoroughly enjoying this challenge!! 

Rosa Parks

This term for History Year Two are learning all about the lives of significant people from the past. We started our topic by learning about Rosa Parks. We created our own bus in class and acted out the famous Montgomery bus scene. We soon realised the devastating consequences that segregation had in society and the key role Rosa Parks had in helping bring changes.
