Year 2

Welcome back everyone! We are very excited to be sharing the start of another learning journey with our brand new Year Two’s. We have a fantastic year ahead of us.

We will begin by getting to know our class owls in detail. Looking at what their key features are, how they live and the food chain that they are part of. To help inspire us, we will be using the books, ‘Owl Babies’ and ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’. We will be learning all about nouns and adjectives and creating owl information posters.

We will then be moving on to learning all about ‘Master Makers’.

In Maths, we will be learning about place value, counting objects to one hundred by counting in groups of tens and ordering objects and numbers.

In Science and DT, we will be exploring and learning all about materials and their properties; investigating their strength and flexibility and investigating the ways that they can be joined together.

In History, we will be discovering who Isambard Kingdom Brunel was and why he is significant.

Towards the end of the month we will be out and about in our locality on a sculpture walk. We will be learning all about the different sculptures that we see, discussing the materials they are made from and how we know and creating maps to inform others as to how to find them.
