Hello and welcome to Year 2!
Our teacher is Miss Coleman and our teaching assistant is Mrs Edwards.
We will begin the half term by looking at the book WANTED: The Perfect Pet. The children will write a set of instructions on how to disguise yourself as a duck. Then we will move onto to writing a story based on Jack and the Beanstalk and finally we will use an app called Book Creator to write an information text about pirates.
Our focus this half term will be: finding change from amounts up to £1, recognising and describing the properties of 3D shapes and interpreting and constructing tally charts, bar graphs and pictograms.
This half term our new topic is Pirates! We will be finding out about famous pirates including: Blackbeard, Anne Bonney and William Kid and learn about what life was like on a pirate ship. On 28th June a real pirate will be coming into school for the day to complete different art and history activities with the children. Children can come to school in pirate clothing on this day.
This half term we will be learning about plants. We will begin by identifying different types of plants then observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants. The children will also identify that plants need light, water and a suitable temperature to stay healthy and grow. Finally we will learn to identify the names of common trees from the shapes of their leaves.
All children at school will begin the half term by taking part in Art's Week. They will work in their houses with children from different year groups to complete a range of art, design, music and drama activities with teachers, TAs and artists from the local area. Keep checking the school website and Facebook page for photos.
This half term the children will be learning about what is means to belong to a faith.
Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. On Mondays we will have a dance teacher who is teaching the children a street dance routine. On Tuesdays the children will be taking part in athletic games and activities to improve running, throwing, catching and team work skills. Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. Although we will use pumps for indoor PE sessions, trainers are advisable for outdoor PE.
