Welcome to Year 2! We have lots of exciting things to look forward to this half term.
We have two classes in Year 2.
Flamingos- 2SE - Mr Eastwood
Eagles - 2JW - Miss Wood
In Year 2 we are very lucky to have Mrs Cummins, Mrs Miah, Miss Binks, Mrs Bano, Mrs Bibi and Mrs Latham working alongside the Year 2 classteachers.
In Maths this half term we are focusing on multiplication and division. We will be drawing arrays to understand repeated addition and that multiplication can be done in any order. We will also use the bar method to multiply and divide. We will be practising our 2, 3, 5 and 10 timetables in class.
In English we are looking at a range of fiction stories about dragons. Our core text is 'The kiss that missed' and we will be writing our own narratives based on this story.
In Science we will be investigating properties of materials and conducting our own investigations. We will be finding out which material is best for a castle wall, which material is best to insulate a castle and which material is best for the roof of a castle. We will make predictions and see if they were correct.
