Welcome to Year 2!
Welcome back after your summer holidays. We are hoping that you had a lovely summer and are as excited as we are about starting our Year 2 journey together.
This term we are very much looking forward to learning about our topics 'Beside The Sea' and 'The Great Fire of London'. During our 'Beside The Sea' topic we will be learning about seaside towns and developing our map skills to find them. We will be comparing seaside towns in the past to how they are today.
Next half term we will be learning about 'The Great Fire of London' and we will be going on a trip to Staircase House in Stockport. We will be designing and then making our own Tudor Houses.
Across both of these topics we will be developing our understanding of materials in Science and conducting experiments based on how to find out more about different materials.
In English, we will be developing our own pleasure for reading and encouraging reading at home. We will be basing our learning in school around the book 'The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch' and after much exploration of the story, we will be writing our own versions of the story.
In Maths, we will be developing our understanding of place value and using the knowledge to order, compare and partition two digit numbers in different ways.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs C Flint (Class Teacher) and Mrs J Turner (Teaching Assistant)
