Year 2

Fun to be fit

We have had an excellent start to the year! Mrs Pamely, Miss Pratt and Mrs Smith have loved having their classrooms filled with brave, kind and happy children. We have been working through our mini-topic of ‘Fun to be fit’ to welcome the children back. They have been learning about keep yourselves and fit and eating healthily. The children really enjoyed making their own fitness DVD’s and creating a class recipe book for healthy sandwiches.

 

Out of this world

Our new topic is ‘Out of this World’ where children will be learning all about space. Including learning about the moon landing, investigating planets and journeys into outer space. Our end goal is for the children to make their own junk model of a space rocket or space buggy.

English

We will be learning to write a fiction story based on our class book ‘Bob Man on the Moon’, rhyming poetry and a non-chronological report. Phonics is taught daily and our spellings tests are held on a Friday. Reading is a big push this year; working on our comprehension skills. Reading at home is vital to support our work at school. More information will be uploaded about how your children can continue their learning at home.

Here are Year 2 weekly spellings:
