Welcome to Year 2 2018-19

Welcome to Year 2!!

The teachers in Year 2 are Mrs. Timson and Mrs. Knapper. Mrs Kelly is the teaching assistant and Mrs Barnes is a support assistant in class.

Our first topic this year is You Are What You Eat. It is a Science based topic where we will be finding out about baby animals (including humans), life cycles, healthy eating and exercise.

In Maths, we will be building on our place value skills, improving our recall of number bonds and using them to solve problems, as well as tackling maths investigations. We'll be improving our addition and subtraction skills, learning about different coins and making totals in money, measuring in centimetres, learning about directional language and counting in 2s,5s and 10s, ready to move onto multiplication and division. What a busy half term!

In English, we will be reading a book called The Lonely Beast. Lots of our writing will be based on this story. We will also be learning different aspects of grammar and doing our weekly spelling tests. Some children will continue to work on phonics, but for most we will be moving the focus onto spelling patterns. Children will also be doing individual reading and guided reading in groups.



Below are some useful links to activities which support Year 2 learning.

We have been enjoying our forest school activities on Tuesday mornings. We have been taking part in lots of exciting activities in the woodland areas.
