At Ribbleton Avenue Infant School we offer every child a happy and caring place to play and learn


Our Class


We are a Year 2 class of 30 children, taught by Miss Dawson and supported by Mrs Hartley.



Our PE lessons are on Monday and Thursday this half term so please make sure we have named PE kits in school and that we are not wearing earrings on this day.


Homework and Spellings

Homework is given out on a Friday and is added to the seesaw app. This will be marked and feedback is provided if relevant. Please complete the homework as this gives additional opportunities to practise current learning in class. Work includes a piece of English and Maths work and is linked to what we have been learning about that week.


If you are struggling to access seesaw, please let Miss Dawson or Mrs Hartley know as we can provide homework sheets.


We also have spellings each Friday to learn for a test the following Thursday. Spellings are taken from children's phonic learning that week and are practised in class also.



We really like reading so we ask our grown ups to listen to us read and comment in our reading diaries so that we can get our book changed - just a small comment and a signature is fine. Books can be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Spring 2



This half term we are learning about stories from a significant author, 'Oliver Jeffers'. We will listen to a range of author's books and make comparisons. We will be focussing on character descriptions and developing vocabulary and punctuation. We will also be writing some non-chronological reports linked to our theme, all about Antarctica and emperor penguins. We will try to ensure we are using all appropriate features and extending sentences with conjunctions and punctuation.



We are building on our knowledge of number and place value, using this to solve problems and reasoning questions. We will be finding missing numbers using inverse, revisit the four operations and also focus on mass. Here we will compare measurements, use correct units of measure and complete some estimating and measuring. Throughout our learning we will continue to develop maths strategies for calculations whilst solving problems.



In PE, we are developing our overarm throwing and catching skills and starting to use some defending tactics. We also have our coaching session this half term where we will be learning a dance to perform.



In Science, we will be learning about animals and their habitats. We will consider different living things, where their habitats are and what they need from their habitat. We will learn more about different food that animals eat and develop our classifying and sorting skills. we will also develop our scientific vocabulary and link learning to our theme about Antarctica.



This half term is very exciting as we are learning about Great Explorers. We will begin some research on Antarctica and learn about the great explorer Sir Robert Falcon Scott. We will learn about his journey and begin to think a little bit about Global Warming. Using our artistic skills we will also create an Antarctic scene in the style of Roy Lichtenstein.



We are learning about Christianity in RE. We will be learning more about Christian beliefs and values and what unites the Christian community. We will explore some Christian symbols, learning about their meanings and then start to learn about churches and their features, even making some of our own!



In Computing, we will use laptops, computers and IPads to learn more about algorithms. We will create our own algorithm and also debug any issues. We will also consider how to use the internet safely and understand other uses of technology.
