Hello and welcome to Year 2!
Your class teacher is Miss Unsworth and your teaching assistants are Mrs Seatree, Miss Beckett and Miss Mealor. We hope you had an amazing half term break and are ready to learn lots more in Year 2!
The Circle of Life!
We will be finding out lots about this topic in our afternoon sessions, but it will also link to our Literacy and Numeracy.
Literacy - Interrogating pieces of choral poetry, creating our own and performing it. We will also be finding out about information (non fiction texts). We will be extracting information from these texts and finding out what the key features are. Our grammar focus will continue to be capital letters and full stops but we will also look at using connectives to extend and improve our sentences. We will be looking at different sentence types, including: statements, commands, exclamations and questions. Our spelling focus will be homophones, such as sea / sea, there / their, where / wear and hear / here.
Numeracy - Fractions, telling the time and money.
Geography - Finding out about where in the world different animals come from. Investigating what these places are like and why they are like this as well as how places are changing due to things such as deforestation and the effect this has on the animals which live there.
Computing - Using the Ipads to create 'Talking books' and using power point to create a slide show.
Art- Learning about the artist Andy Goldsworthy and creating our own artwork in his style.
