Core Subject Information

 

English

In English this week, we will begin to create our own leaflet about birds of prey using the information we learnt from Fur and Feathers. 

We will be making sure that we use subheadings, bullet points and that we use a range of punctuation (capital letters, full stops, questions marks and commas).

 

 Topic-Computing

Over the next two weeks we will be achieving these objectives.

  • Use technology to purposefully create, organise , store , manipulate and retrieve digital content
  • Recognise common uses of information technology beyond school.
  • Use technology safely and respectfully, keeping their personal information private.
  • Know where to go for help and support if they’re worried about anything they see on the internet or other online technologies.

We will be making our own E-Safety posters, discussing how we use technology safely in and outside of school. We will then move on to capturing and taking our own photographs.

 

 

 
 

Maths - Over the next two weeks we are we are going to be learning about time.  We will be telling and writing the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour. We will also be drawing the hands on a clock face to show different times.

We will be comparing and sequencing intervals of time.

Eisteddfod

 

We are once again running our popular Eisteddfod performance poetry competition across the Multi Academy Trust this year.

The children can learn a poem of their choice (and can even write their own poem if they wish)

Find below some example poems to give you an idea of appropriate level for your child's year group. Please note that whilst you may use these poems, there is no expectation to and we love to see variety and children's own choices. 

Performances will be judged on how well the poem has been learnt, clarity, expression and actions used to enhance the performance.

The first round of class auditions will be on Friday 22nd November, followed by the semi finals on Friday 24th January and then the finals on Thursday 5th March - we can’t wait to hear the children’s performances!

Please do ask if you have any questions regarding the Eisteddfod. Thank you. 

Year Two Curriculum Map

This page will be updated weekly to keep you informed about our learning. Homework and spellings can also be found here.

 

If you have any questions please speak to Miss Dance on the playground at the end of the day, or write a message for Miss Dance in your child's partnership diary.

 

 Reading Certificates

 A reminder to read 4 times per week for 10 weeks and you can earn a certificate . (Parents please remember to sign the partnership book).

 

 

Outdoor Learning

Please note we will be using the outdoor areas regularly this year to enhance our learning. Please can you send old shoes or wellies in with your children along with a suitable coat. This way regardless of the weather we can all get outside.
