Welcome to Year 2
Our Year 2 teachers are Mrs Palmer, Miss Evans and Mrs Cooper. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Chamberlain, Mrs Chaudhry, Mrs Grantham and Mrs Ramsdale. Mrs Martin and Miss Cooper will be teaching RE, music and art.
The children are enjoying learning about our 'author of the term' - Julia Donaldson. Each term we will be looking at a different author.
After half term, our new author of the term will be, Michael Murpurgo.
We are thoroughly looking forward to all of our topics this year. Our autumn term topics are:
- Great Fire of London
- The Gun Powder Plot
During our first topic we will be investigating the types of things a plant needs to be able to grow, the different parts and the life cycle of a plant.
Our Numeracy will be based on the Mastery approach. This will involve the children focusing on a specific strand of Numeracy for a few weeks at a time. Our hope is that this method of delivery will help the children develop secure problem-solving skills that they can apply to everyday life. This term we will be focussing on place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and geometry.
Every morning we will get into our phonics groups. This will be followed by our daily literacy lessons, focussing on our topics.
PE will be on Monday and Friday afternoons. The children will need their indoor and outdoor kit.
We are looking forward to an exciting year, working with you and your children.
