Welcome to Year 2!

In Year 2 we are busy learning and growing in independence ready to enter KS2.

What we are learning this term
In the Autumn term, Year 2 will be exploring the topic 'What makes a community?' and learning through the concepts of commnity, values, respect and identity. This topic builds on the learing they did about themselves and their family in Year 1. It looks into the past at experiences of others e.g the Victorian period of time. 
During Spring term, Year 2 will be investigating how they can deal with change whilst really focusing on the key concepts of resilience, courage, power and strength. These concepts will underpin all subjects in the curriculum and will also help the children to understand the actions and drive of key figures in history. We are also very excited that our residential to Delamere is just around the corner. The children will enjoy hill walking, pond dipping, creating art in nature, a night walk and will grow in confidence and independence. 
In the Summer term, the children study the history of the Titanic and consider the concepts of consequence and responsibility. The children will also extend their Geography knowledge by looking 'Over the Water' at continents. 

Please check the school newsletter for our PE days. The children should come to school wearing their PE kit on these days. Our school PE kit is a white polo shirt and black shorts with trainers or pumps. As the weather gets colder, the children are welcome to wear black jogging bottoms and a black jumper/their red school jumper.

Please send reading books in every day so we have the opportunity to read in school (Books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday if they have finished their book). Reading is extremely important in our development! We will also be sending home a book from our class library every Friday for you to read with your child (they will have a share with me sticker on them).

Homework will be sent home via our class dojo and will include reading, spelling work, along with the PackTypes activities.
If you have any questions then please get in touch via email or class dojo.
