Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

 

Mrs Judge is the class teacher and Mrs Lowe is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class Two news, pictures of things we've done and more.

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 2. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Spring 2:

Explorers!

 

Our current topic is 'Explorers'. We will be exploring the school grounds using birds eye images and maps of the school. We will  compare a satellite image of our school with a floor plan. We will also investigate different habitats and how animals have adapted to our environment.

 

Spring 1:

 

This term, the children have enjoyed comparing Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. They debated who was more important and the similarities and differences between the two. Children had a fantastic day designing and creating their own moon buggies. After making a careful plan, considering the purpose of the vehicle, they used dowling, washers and wooden wheels to enable the vehicle to move.

 

    

Our Class country is Rwanda!!

We have been learning about what it is like to go to school in Rwanda and what they like to eat.

Our class reward chart this year is space themed!
