Welcome to a new school year, after what has been a very strange and worrying time for us all. We will be having PE on Mondays this half term.

In year 2, we work hard to become independent learners who enjoy learning. We also develop problem solving skills and try our best in everything we do!

See our termly newsletter for further information. If you have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to come in and see us! 

Welcome to our World- Autumn 2020

Our brand new topic for autumn term begins with the book called 'One Day So Many Ways'.

This book will help us to compare the lives of children in other countries with our own lives. Within this topic we will also learn about oceans, continents and hot and cold climates. 

We are looking forward to lots of fun art lessons learning about the famous POP artist called Roy Lichtenstein and will produce work in his style.   

 

The other book we will use is called 'And Tango Makes Three'. It is based on a true story set in New York, so the children will use geographical skills to find out what New York so like and compare it to our local area. Tango is a penguin and we will be finding out about the life cycle of penguins and their habitats.

 

 

 

 

 

Down Under - Spring 2020

Our new topic for the second half of the Spring term is all about Australia. The children will be learning about the animals that live there and its geographical features and landmarks. They will compare Australia with the United Kingdom.

 

 

In art we will be looking at Aboriginal paintings and finding out the meaning of the symbols used. The children will then have fun creating their own Aboriginal style paintings using dots.

 

The Great Fire of London: Spring 2020

 We have some more fun things planned over our next term! Our new topic of the year will have a history focus as we are looking at the Great Fire of London.  The children will be learning about the key events such as when and how the fire spread but also understanding the changes that happened as a result of the fire.

 

 

 

 

Science:

Linking into The Great Fire of London year 2 will be learning about all the different everyday materials. With this, they will be linking it to the materials used during 1666 compared to today!

 

 

On World Book Day we had an amazing opportunity to watch the production of Oliver Twist!!
