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 Lomas, Miss Martin and Mrs Dale.
See what we are learning this half term!
Maths: Our focus this half term is finding missing numbers in calculations using the inverse. We will learn the process of how to do this and strengthen our understanding. We will also recap on all the calculation methods that we have learnt and apply these methods when reasoning. Our wider maths will include time, units of measure, money and shape.
English: We will be finishing our previous topic 'Dungeons and Dragons' by writing a letter to the dragon that visited St Thomas Werneth! We will learn about the features of a letter, using different sentence types and contractions. Then we will be writing our 'Would you rather' silly poems about animals focusing on conjunctions.
Science – Linked to our topic 'I'm Alive' we will be looking closely at the seven life processes. We will be sorting animals into their classification and learning about their habitats. We will find out why animals live in certain habitats and how they have adapted. Also, we will be looking at the offspring animals have and find out what a food chain is.
EVERY MONDAY THIS HALF TERM, BOTH YEAR 2 CLASSES ARE VERY LUCKY TO HAVE AN EXTRA PE SESSION WITH OUR SCHOOL DANCE COACH. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT PE KITS ARE ALWAYS IN SCHOOL. PE UNTIL EASTER IS ALSO TAUGHT ON A FRIDAY.
