From Miss Dawson and Mrs Hartley 


Our Class


We are a Year 2 class of 29 children, taught by Miss Dawson and supported by Mrs Hartley.



Our PE lessons are on Tuesday 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 must be kept at home (for now). Please complete the homework sheets as these give additional practise for 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.


We also have spellings each Friday to learn for a test the following Thursday.



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! At present, books are given out on a Monday and returned to school to quarantine each Thursday!


Important Dates

Wednesday 2nd September - Back to school

Friday 23rd October - Finish School



What have the Owls been up to?

Keep checking as photos will be added throughout the year!




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. As we missed some learning in year 1, we are continuing with learning our numbers to 50 and beyond. After that, we will observe some shapes and learn more about their properties.



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 gymnastics session each week with the coach where we will learn more travels, shapes and balances to create sequences.



This half term we are learning about survival and growth alongside germs! We will be considering what living things need to survive and also learn more about types of germs. We will also be conducting some experiments on germs and hygiene!



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 be creating self portraits and posters to begin. We will learn how to use the internet safely and understand other uses of technology.
