Welcome to Year 2’s class page. Take a look at what we’ve been up to…
Mrs. Aris teaches Year 2 with the support from Mr. McKeown. Mrs. Spacey teaches us on Wednesday afternoons and Mrs. Barnett, our Headteacher, on Thursday afternoons. Miss Mallinson takes us for our music lesson on Wednesday mornings.
This term’s Stars!
Below you’ll find photos of the children who have been given the Star Award in our Friday morning assembly.
Things to know about…
Year 2 is a very important year for the children! We have lots of work to do but we also aim to have a lot of fun along the way.
With all the work we are doing in class, we will get homework too…
Reading – We are expected to read to an adult every night and have what we read recorded in our Reading Diaries.
Spellings – We’ll also be given spellings to learn. These will be given to us on a Friday, learnt during the week and then tested the following Friday.
Homework – Mrs. Aris will give us homework to do each week. This will be set on a Friday and should be handed in the following Friday. We’ll be given either English or Maths to do and it’ll be similar to the work we have been doing in class.
What a week!
Well done to all the children this week who have worked extremely hard in all areas of the curriculum.
In English we have continued to look at the story ‘Prince Cinders’. Children have been writing instructions for Prince Cinders using imperative verbs (bossy verbs). In Maths children have been adding 3 single digits together; adding number patterns first, for instance adding number bonds to 10 first then adding the third number. In Science we have been looking at germs and the importance of personal hygiene. In Art we have been looking at Aboriginal art and we all created fantastic art work using this technique. In P.E we were extremely lucky to have Mrs McKee teaching us some country dancing and how to use the maypole correctly. The children loved taking part in this – take a look at the photos. In R.E we were looking at Baptism and signs and symbols.
This week we have started our new topic, ‘Fighting Fit’. In Science we have been looking at making a healthy plate ensuring we have a balanced diet. We also have been looking at different amounts of sugar in drinks and we were all astonished that apple juice had the most amount of sugar in. In English we have been looking at the story, ‘Prince Cinders’. The children have enjoyed writing letters to the author asking her questions about the story. We are hoping to receive a reply next week! In RE we have been looking at Psalms and the children have written their own Psalm this week. I was extremely impressed with their thoughts and ideas that went into their Psalm. In our class prayer and liturgy we have been looking at St Pio and how he was a Peacemaker. We have been trying to follow in his footsteps and be Peacemakers in school and at home. Children have been asked to write about when they are a Peacemaker.
