Welcome to Year 2’s Class page

 

We hope all is going well so far. Please remember that this is a big change to all, parents, teachers and children alike. We appreciate all of your support, and at this uncertain time, can only try our best! Please do what you can with your children, but we know it will take time to establish a steady routine.

Most of all we hope that you are keeping safe and well and enjoying this time as best as you can with each other.

Over the upcoming weeks we will be uploading weekly time tables to guide you and the children through learning at home.

 

 

Religious Education:

The children will be looking at the Lenten season and Holy Week, the time leading up to the death of Jesus. During this topic children will gain an understanding of the three practises of Lent, Almsgiving, Fasting and Prayer and how these can be applied to their own lives. In addition children will learn and be able to retell the story of Holy Week, including key events and the importance of these events.

 

English:

We will provide weekly activities in the following areas:

  • Reading
  • Spelling
  • Grammar and punctuation
  • Writing – this might be a planning or creative writing activity.

 

Maths:

In maths we will be revisiting areas covered so far to ensure your children’s knowledge in these areas are secure.

 

For both English and Maths we will provide relevant resources, including activities to complete in CGP books and websites to support learning for online activities, like that of White Rose for Maths. Please check the updated weekly timetable every Monday for the upcoming week.

History and Geography:

We will be looking at the topic of ‘Our Local Area’ and exploring the region of ‘Ghana’

These topics will be covered at home through a range of research activities set on Year 2’s learning grid. Our current topic of ‘Our Local Area’ can be found on the learning grids found in your child’s Orange work book and also here on Year 2’s Class page.

In the upcoming weeks after the Easter holiday, we will upload a new Learning grid for the topic of ‘Ghana’.

 

 

Art:

We will be looking at patterns and stitching. Whilst this may be difficult to carryout in all households, we will provide as many resources to support as possible.

We will also be looking into the life and work of George Seurat, a famous artist who brought around the style of Pointillism. Your child will have the opportunity to learn about this style and create their own art pieces using this Seurat’s method.

 

 

ICT:

We will set a weekly activity that develops your child’s ICT skills whilst also supporting learning in other subject areas too. These activities will be through PurpleMash and other ICT websites. Keep an eye out for links provided on the weekly timetable.
