In Year 2 we are all aiming to be MAGIC learners with lots of exciting things happening this autumn term!
Our topic for the first half term is 'Around the World' where the children will be learning about the seven different continents. During the second half term our topic is 'Celebrations' where Year 2 will be learning about Guy Fawkes and begin the Christmas celebrations - including rehearsals for the Christmas concert!
In English, we will be starting the year by reading the narrative 'Zog' by Julia Donaldson. The children will take part in role-play, character descriptions and then retell their own version of Zog. We will then continue our dragon theme but move onto non-fiction. The children will write a non-chronological report about their own 'fantasy' dragon. After half term the children will read and perform poems based on fireworks to link in with our topic, eventually writing their own fireworks poem.
In maths, Year 2 will be focusing on number and place-value. We will be looking at the value of each digit in a 2-digit number and represent 2-digit numbers in a variety of ways, for example using tens and ones, money and on a bead string.
Our PSHE Jigsaw piece this year is Jigsaw Joe. Jigsaw Joe will be there to help Year 2 express their thoughts and feelings during PSHE lessons and circle time.
We look forward to a successful and productive year with you.
Miss Constable, Mrs Lovelock and Mrs Dell
