Welcome to Year 2
Welcome to Year 2’s page where lots of exciting and interesting new learning is taking place!
In Year 2 we continue to develop the children’s growing independence and thinking skills through our learning challenges. Pupils are given the opportunity to self-select the level of challenge with support and guidance at hand.
Daily Maths and English lessons are taught, along with History, Geography and Science led topics. Our creative curriculum is brought to life through a range of engaging themes such as ‘Fire! Fire!’, ‘Habitats’ and ‘Famous nurses’.
Key skills are practised and effort praised, pupils are encouraged to have a go and learn to realise their strengths and those things that they cannot do – yet!
During the Summer term all Year 2 pupils are formally assessed as part of the end of Key Stage assessment programme, known as SATS.
Highlights for this half term
This term our main focus will be wellbeing and emotional literacy. We will be supporting our children to return to school and cope positively with the ‘new normal’.
We hope to have lots of fun with our learning across our creative curriculum. As part of our ‘Habitats’ topic we will be doing lots of outdoor learning such as exploring the school grounds, going on a minibeast hunt and creating natural art. In our second topic ‘Famous Nurses’ we will be researching famous historical figures and looking at how their influence has improved our wonderful hospitals and the role of nurses!
PE with Sam will offer the children an opportunity to learn a range of new movement skills through playing invasion games and developing healthy competition with others.
We will round off our exciting Autumn term by learning some silly poems and limericks followed by designing and making hand puppets.
Things to look forward to…
We will also be performing in our spectacular annual Key Stage 1 Christmas Production… this will look a bit different this year, watch this space!
