Welcome to a fun packed year 2!
Our teachers are Mrs Palmer, Mrs Dodds and Miss Evans. Mrs Palmer’s class is called 2JP and their teaching assistants are Mrs Chamberlain and Mrs Chaudhry. Mrs Dodds and Miss Evans’ class is called 2EE/ND and their teaching assistants are Mrs Van Nieuwkerk, Mrs Grantham, Mrs Hunter and Miss Shirley.
During the year we will complete many different topics based on Geography, History and Science.
Our first topic, during the Autumn term focuses on the Fire. Throughout this topic we look at The Great Fire of London and The Gunpowder Plot. After half term, our main topic will be Ice. Throughout this topic we will look at Polar Regions including related texts such as Rainbow Bear.
Our author of the half term is Julia Donaldson and after half term it is Michael Morpurgo. This should encourage reading for pleasure.
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.
We look forward to meeting and working with you this year.
