Year 2

New Year = A New Class + A New Start 

Well we're into October and and the New Year 2s feel as if they've always been in Year 2.  They've settled down quickly and are busy getting to grips with the routines and the curriculum.  This half term we are looking at ourselves and where we live.  Here is a little taster of what has been going on!

In school we have loved looking at places we recognise on google earth.  After looking at our school, in teams we made a plan of all of the different rooms here in school!  Here are some of our maps.

Happy New Year and welcome back.  Hope that everyone has had a peaceful break and are ready for the challenges and fun planned for Half Term 3.

This term we are looking at 'The Magical Kingdom' this entails fairy tales in English and Knights and Lords in our Creative Curriculum lessons.  This term we shall pay The Royal Armouries in Leeds a visit; as well as my most favourite afternoon of the year; The Pantomime at The Alhambra in Bradford to see Peter Pan.

Here are just a few images from our visit to the mosque.

Welcome back after half term.

 

This half term we will be looking at the event of World War 1.  We will enjoy the story of 'Where The Poppies Now Grow' by Hilary Robinson, this is a story about the friendship of 2 boys who grow up to fight from the trenches of WW1.  

In maths we will be continuing with addition and subtraction and how this helps us with measures; so around the home look at how we measure drinks, food, fabric cleaning products.  We will be visiting a mosque to help us understand the similarities and differences of places of worship.

Here are some pictures form our visit to St Philip's Church.

Welcome aboard to year 2.  This term we will be learning about pirates; real and made up ones!  In class we will be reading and writing Pirate adventure stories, and once we know what trickery they got up to we will learn all about real life pirates!  We have a pirate cove in the classroom where we can secretly plot our attacks and hid our hoards of treasure.  At the end of the term we will celebrate life as a pirate by joining reception class for a treasure hunt!  

Welcome back to half term 3, I hope everyone had a great fortnight's holiday!  Well, it's all go with our Fairy Taled themed term.  In the first week we are taking a visit to the Royal Armouries in Leeds to learn more about castles, knights and the way of life back in the middle ages.  In week 2 we have a visiting Pantomime who will be performing the Fairy Tale of Aladdin to us.  During the rest of our learning time we will be discovering everything there is to know about the goodies and the baddies of our much loved tales.  Plus there will be a movie cub on a Friday night after school to watch, discuss and act out our favourite characters.  Who is your favourite fairy tale character?

Welcome Back to Half Term 2!  I hope you've had a fantastic half term break, and that you're ready for our next half term of hard work.

This half term we are travelling back in time to the first world war- 100 years ago!  We will learn what life was like both on the front line and back at home, and how things had to change. 

During our maths we will becoming more efficient at the formal operations of add, take away, times and divide, and we will apply these to problems which will reinforce our shape and handling data skills. 

Welcome back to our new school year.  I hope you all had an amazing summer!

This term we are learning all about the local area.  What type of houses and shops there are close by.  What other facilities do we know of in our area? How do people get around?  What other locations are near by?  We will be spending time with hands on experiences by walking around and using our art of noticing skills.   In class we will be paying closer attention to our presentation of our work both orally and in writing.

How good at number are you?  This first term we will spend counting, ordering, sequencing, adding numbers not only up to 100, but for those of you who love a challenge 1000!
