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 Wednesday 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 in the yellow homework books. 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.


Seesaw is used for messages and updates. If you are struggling to access seesaw, please let Miss Dawson or Mrs Hartley know as we can provide support.


We also give 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.

Autumn 1



This half term we are learning about 'Stories with a familiar setting'. We will be listening to 'The Bog Baby' where we will build on our sentence writing and use of conjunctions. We will explore the character in detail and begin to use adjectives to describe. We will also write our own version of the story. Following on from this we will also be reading some poetry and learning about instructional writing for recipes.



We are building on our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction this half term. We will be revisiting and building on our methods of calculation using part whole, ten frames and jottings. We are continuing with learning our numbers to 100. After that, we will observe some shapes and learn more about their properties, then move onto measure and money.



In PE, we are building on lots of skills this half term. We are focusing on throwing, catching and striking the ball. We also have our coaching session each week where we will learn a dance routine.



This half term we are learning about survival and growth. We will be considering what living things need to survive and also learn more about experiments to develop our scientific enquiry skills.



This half term is very exciting as we are learning about superheroes! We will learn more about every day heroes and then build on our D&T skills to evaluate some superhero outfits. We will design and make our own too. We will also be creating some superhero music.



We are learning about Christianity this half term. Children will share their own experiences and understanding. We will observe the world and consider ways of looking after it.



In Computing, we will use laptops, computers and IPads to learn more about a range of programs and tools. We will learn how to use the internet safely and understand other uses of technology. We will also be following our purplemash scheme on coding.
