Year 2

Welcome to Year 2's Class Page 

On this page, you will find useful information about Year 2, homework letters and lots of links to our learning. 

 

This term our topic is History led so we have been learning all about a range of significant people from around the world. The children have learnt about Rosa Parks, Marcus Rashford, Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg. All of these have linked really well to our geography topic last term where we learnt all about our world. In our classrooms, we have created timelines and have spent time learning about the timeline of our own life as well as seeing where everyone else fits into our main timeline. We have made links between people who were born around the same time and also compared it to when our school was bombed in the war and where we fit in.

 

In English, we have looked closely at the story 'Rosie Revere: Engineer' and how to write a set of instructions to build their own flying machine. We then linked this to sketching and shading in art and carefully drew our inventions. These are proudly on display outside our classrooms. 

 

In Science, we have looked at materials. Discussing their properties and uses and how they help us to lead the lives we do. The children have been able to carry out experiments and investigations into which materials might be best for create a warm coat for Sir David's trip to Antarctica.

 

We LOVE to read in year two and we read every day in every part of the curriculum. This term we have enjoyed both fiction and non-fiction books, in particular we have been very excited to read all the 'Little People: Big Dreams' stories about significant people in history.

 

We share our learning on Seesaw so that you can see just how hard we are working. Please remember to keep checking for regular updates and we cannot wait to have you in school to share our learning with us soon.
