The year 2 team would like to take this opportunity to welcome back all the children and parents. We have been very busy, in the last few weeks, settling the children down into their new classes. It has been great getting to know all the children and dive into our learning.
The Year 2 teachers are...
Miss Scully - Panther Class
Miss Wright - Lion Class
Miss Boateng and Mrs Christodoulou - Tiger Class
Miss Baverstock - Leopard Class
Miss Smith and M/s James - Jaguar Class
We have been studying narratives in English and have been retelling the story of Duffy and The Runaway Train. The children have been exploring the story through speaking and listening and using pictures as prompts. We are recapping using capital letters and full stops. It would be amazing if you could also practise these sentences at home and remind children of the rules.
In maths we have been focusing on place value and representing numbers in different ways. The children are learning to read and write numbers up to 100 and ordering them.
Parents evening will take place in autumn 2 but please feel free to speak to class teachers to find out how your children are getting on.
Year 2 Team.
During the autumn term, we will be studying The Great Fire of London and how London has changed from 1666 until now. The children will learn about how history is the study of events that have occurred in the past. We would love for you to discuss your children’s lives and events that they have encountered in their very few years.
In art we have been practising our brush strokes and exploring how to create patterns. We will use these different strokes to create our own landscape painting.
In science, we have been studying plants and understanding when we need to plant seeds. We are learning that different seeds need to be planted during different seasons. In preparation for autumn we have been clearing the flower beds ready to plant bulbs which will grow in spring.
