Year 2

Welcome to Year 2!

Miss Bush is the class teacher and Mrs Smith 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!

Autumn 2:

Investigating the UK

In Year 2, our new Geography-based topic will be ‘Investigating the United Kingdom.’ We will be locating and naming the four countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom.  For our Brilliant Beginning, we will go on a ‘British Adventure’ where we will do activities relating to each of the 4 countries in the UK.

Autumn 1:

The History of Flight

In History, we will be learning all about the history of flight. We will learn about the lives of the Wright Brothers and Amelia Earhart. In Science, we will carryout scientific investigations to see what affects how far a paper aeroplane can travel.  In DT, we will create models of planes and helicopters using KNEX.

 

In Science, we have been working scientifically to investiagte how the size of a balloon affects the distance a balloon car travels. As a class, we decided what we wanted to investiagted, predicted what would happened and then recorded our findings in a table. We found out that the bigger balloon pushed the car further. We thought this was because it had more air. 

 

In DT, we explored KNex to make rotating propellers.
