Welcome to Year 2,
I very much look forward to working in Year 2, alongside the vastly experienced Mrs Grant. We are also supported by Mrs Gibson who works on a Friday afternoon providing forest school for the children.
In English this term, we shall be reading some great texts and learning about many different styles of writing including instructions, letters, non-chronological reports and recounts. We will also be looking at many different grammar skills that we can apply into our writing.
In Maths, we shall look to build on our knowledge from year 1 and will be looking to use all four operations in our calculations. We shall also approach measurement and weight.
Our Enquiry topic will be about "We are Britain", where we shall study the four different countries that make up Britain and relevant facts. We shall also have a look at rivers and mountains.
We have a school trip coming up to Kenilworth Castle which will prepare the children for the next topic after the half term.
I'm very much looking forward to this exciting year ahead. Please feel free to speak to me if you have any queries at all
