Year 2 - Nightingale Class

The Year 2 class is led by Mrs Fred-Horsfall. She will be helped by Ms Awale, who is the Assistant Class Teacher. Ms Bairam is the Teaching Assistant in the class. 

We will practise phonics, reading and spelling in our Read, Write Inc. lessons and reading lessons and will write in a variety of genres in our Literacy lessons. We will focus on some interesting stories and information books too. 

In Maths, we will be working with numbers to 100 through counting, making number patterns and number bonds. We will practise adding and subtracting and multiplication and division by 2, 5 and 10.

We will be learning all about Henry VIII and his six wives in History, learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world in Geography and in Textiles, we will be making a puppet. 

In Science, we will be looking at the uses of everyday materials. We will look at which materials are better for different objects and carry out different science experiments to test our predictions. We will see which objects and materials we can change the shapes of by bending, squashing and stretching.

Our PE and Performing Arts lessons will be on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school on these days and remember to write your name in all the items.

Spring Update

This half term in Year 2 we have been exploring the Great Fire of London. As always, we have made several links across the curriculum to embed pupils understanding of the topic. In Art, the pupils created Silhouette paintings which resembled the Great Fire of London and in DT we made 3D models of Tudor homes. In History, we explored one of the most historical events in British History which has contributed greatly to our living today – The Great Fire of London. Pupils explored how it started; the impact it had on Londoners and how it has impacted us today.

In Geography, we have studied different landscapes across the United Kingdom and developed the skill of reading Relief maps. Pupils have learnt about hills, mountains, valleys and rivers. In Literacy, we have read and explored a range of books which link to speci c themes/ focus weeks in Spring 1. Finally, in Maths, we have covered Geometry, Addition and Subtraction and Place Value.

Spring 2

This term has been a fun term for pupils in Year 2, even through this uncertain time. This half term, we have had a number of special days. From World Book day (well done parents – the children looked fabulous) to Sport Relief Day, where pupils engaged in activities to raise money for charity.

In Maths, we focused on developing our basic mathematical skills (addition subtraction, multiplication and division) and fractions. In English, we began to explore our focus author Roald Dahl. We read ‘The Twits’ (the class’ favourite book), ‘Esio Trot’ and we began reading ‘The Enormous Crocodile’. The pupils fell in love with Roald Dahl’s writing style, which sparked a desire for reading in all pupils.

In History, pupils continued studying ‘The Great Fire of London’ and focused more on the importance of primary sources and how they help us understand what happened in 1666. Our Geography topics this term were ‘UK Landscapes’ and ‘Settlements’. Pupils learnt about the different landscapes in the UK and they began to study different types of settlements.

We are very proud of the work the pupils have produced this term and how much their attitude towards their learning has developed.
