Welcome to our class page.
The teachers working in Year 2 are Mrs Walton, Mrs Harris and Mrs Towler.
PE kits will be needed on Tuesday and Friday
Homework will be sent out on a Friday to be returned by the following Friday - Maths homework will be MyMaths.
Please listen to your child read every day - this important for confidence and fluency. Please ask them questions about what they have read.
When your child has read their book and completely understands it, they will be encouraged to complete a quiz and then change their book.
We have now started our new topic - "All Dressed Up"
Our entry point was to design and make an outfit for their teddy.
We have been so impressed with the designs and the outcomes.
Today we launched some of our rockets.
Ask your child what we used to make them lift off. Which do you think flew the highest and why?
Our visit to West Ardsley Methodist Church to see the knitted bible exhibition.
Our IPC Topics this year are:
A to B
All Dressed Up
People of the Past
Our first IPC topic this year was Brainwaves.
The big idea
Our brain is special because it does lots of amazing things. Once we understand how our brain works and what we can do to make it work even better, then we can improve the way that we learn.
We also talked about our IPC values and the children worked hard to explain what they were and how we see this in everyday life.
A To B
This is our current topic.
The Big Idea
Every day people all over the world make different types of journeys – on land, on sea and in the air. To make these journeys we have invented lots of different ways of getting from A to B.
The children already knew lots of modes of transport when we did our knowledge harvest.
We have also designed and built rockets, we will be launching them soon - watch this space!!!!
We have also been inventing vehicles of the future and then writing our own report on it.
Watch this space!
In maths, we start with a concrete concept, we then move on to a pictorial concept and then finally to the abstract concept.
