Welcome to Penguin Class and Crocodile Class!
Y2 have a very exciting term ahead! Over the next few months we will be revisiting some of our Y1 learning and using this as building blocks in to our Y2 learning to ensure that we are secure and confident learners.
Our key area of focus is reading where we will be exploring a range of class stories and a multitude of texts across all lessons to build our fluency, vocabulary, knowledge, understanding and empathy. In Y2 we just love to read!
This term we are looking forward to learning about The Great Fire of London, the world continents and the countries and capital cities of the UK. We also can’t wait to explore our local area and the type of place we live in using The Jolly Postman and his fairy tale friends to support us doing this. Once we understand the geography of our local area, we will be investigating the history of St Mary’s church, the castle and Cathedral.
In art, our focus artist is Kandinsky. We will be using his work to explore how he uses colour, texture and shape to create mood and to ask our own questions to delve deeper in to his Winter Landscape painting. We will then be applying the skills he used to create our own artwork with texture, colour and shape. This learning build on beautifully from the Kandinsky learning in Y1.
Design and technology focuses on our simple skills: measuring, cutting, joining and drawing, so that we can apply these skills confidently later in the year.
In PE, we will be building our ball skills and learning how to use our bodies in different ways to sequence a dance routine.
We are excited about our animals focus in Science where we will be learning about different types of animals, their habitats and food chains.
We will be very busy with all of our different learning hats on, so keep checking on twitter, Facebook and particularly Seesaw to see what we are up to!
