Year 2

Welcome back to the Spring term!

I hope everybody had a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and that you are all ready for the exciting work we are going to do this term.   

This term, the title of our theme will continue to be ‘Leaving a Legacy’, this will end at half-term. When we return after half-term, our theme lessons will focus on Geography. The title of these will be “Many worlds, One Planet”

History

In our history lessons, we will be learning about significant people and the impact they have had on the world.

Geography

In Geography, we will be learning to use maps to locate the continents and oceans of the world. We will also be learning about life in a European country.

Art

Children will be exploring expressing themselves using paint and making sculptures using clay.

Design and Technology

In DT, children will learn about mechanisms and will be making a book with moving parts. Our second topic will focus on food and the preparation of healthy meals.

RE

Our first unit in RE will focus on God’s chosen people. This will involve exploring the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Moses and Daniel. We will then move on to learning God’s good news and the key stories in the New Testament. Our final unit before the Easter break will focus on Lent.

 

If there is anything else you would like to know about our learning, please ask.  I am more than happy to discuss the work we will be completing.

 

Supporting your child at home

There is an expectation that children will read at home daily. Please ensure that you note what has been read in your child’s reading diaries and send these to school every day. A member of the Year Two teaching team will check reading diaries regularly and a reward system will be used to help children celebrate the books they have read.

Other classroom Information

Please avoid bringing backpacks into school. Please ensure that your child has their water bottle and book bag in school every day. Children need to wear PE clothes on Wednesday’s that should consider the weather for outside lessons.

Thank you for your continued support. I am sure we will have a fantastic year and have a lot of fun (there will be a lot of work as well).
