Welcome to Year 2!
We have two classes in Year 2:
Mr Shearsmith - Flamingos class
Miss Wood - Eagles class
We are also very lucky to have Mrs Miah, Mrs Bibi, Mrs Cummins, Miss Martin and Mrs Dale.
See what we are learning this half term!
Maths: Our focus this half term is on multiplication and division. We will be looking at and making arrays and using the bar method when solving problems. We will be working on our quick recall of multiplication facts. We will understand the inverse relationship between multiplication and division. Later on in the term we will be using our division skills when finding fractions of numbers. Additionally, we will be finding fractions of shapes.
English: Linked to our topic 'Dungeons and Dragons' we will be looking at different fairy stories, in particular 'The kiss that missed'. We will be creating a new adventure for our brave, fearless knight. We will be reading other stories about knights and dragons and noticing differences and similarities between the characters.
Science – We are continuing our learning about materials and now linking them to castles. We will be asking questions such as... which is the best material for a castle wall and for a castle roof. We will be discussing the suitability of different materials.
EVERY THURSDAY THIS HALF TERM, BOTH YEAR 2 CLASSES ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE AN EXTRA PE SESSION WITH A SPORTS COACH. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT PE KITS ARE ALWAYS IN SCHOOL.
