Welcome to Year 2!
Your teachers are Miss Ramsay and Miss Sullivan. Your teaching assistants are Mrs O'Shaughnessy and Miss Webb.
Term 1 - Muck, Mess and Mixture
For our first topic, Year 2 are diving into a world of Muck, Mess and Mixture. We will be exploring all different kinds of mixtures through our topic and science lessons. Some will result in tasty baked goods, but some will result in powerful explosions! We will be using our practical sensory lessons to feed into our writing. This term we will focus on writing descriptions, instructions, recounts, poetry and narratives. In our Art lessons, we will be working on mixing colours, experimenting with different styles of painting and sketching. In our Maths, we will be working on our knowledge of place value and the four operations. We will make sure that we push on into some problem solving and reasoning to give us some depth. Through Geography lessons, we will learn all about the world, its continents and oceans before honing in on some local map work. In Music, we will be working on pulse, rhythm and pitch before moving on to notation. Computing will teach us about algorithms and some basic programming. PE will teach us about gymnastics and we will improve our ball skills.
With so much to do, don't be surprised if our little Puffins and Hedgehogs come home a little tired! Remember to read every night. Other homework will be weekly spellings, Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars and pre-learning tasks. There will be great prizes for those who complete their homework, but reading every night should be the biggest priority.
Watch out for our Muck, Mess and Mixture Day next week! Don't forget your donation and white t-shirt. Be prepared for fabulous fun, magnificent mess and marvellous mixtures!
