Welcome to the Year 2 class page!
It has been a wonderful start to the term so far. The children have settled well into their Year 2 routines and below, you will find out more about the exciting topics we will be covering this term.
Our topic this half term is called In the Beginning with the Church. We are looking at the Sacraments of Initiation, the four parts of Mass and the symbols used during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. After half term, we will start our new unit called From Advent to Christmas.
We started this term with a story called Six Dinner Sid and continued looking at stories with familiar settings through a book called A Claude. This story will be the basis for the children to write their own imaginative stories about an innovated character based on Claude. The children have enjoyed finding out about and using different adjectives to enhance their writing. During Big Writing lessons, children will get a chance to write their own stories, postcards and instructions.
In Maths, we have really focused on place value so the children have a solid understanding of the value of numbers. We will be moving on to using the four operations and applying these when solving simple word problems. Later in the term, we will look at real life problems involving money, as well as having fun with some practical activities involving shape and space.
Look out for Year 2’s Assemblies which the children are thoroughly looking forward to performing at the start of the Spring term.
As is the case throughout the school, we expect and encourage all children to adhere to the high standards of behaviour both in class and on the playground.
The children in Year 2 have worked together to create a set of Golden Rules and have all agreed to follow these rules with the understanding that doing so will create a happy learning environment that will help their learning.
Working together with parents and guardians plays a big part in establishing good relationships and standards of behaviour.
