We have started our writing based around the text, After the Fall by Dan Santat. To start the unit, we found some cracked eggs in our classrooms and thought about where they might have come from. We then wrote sentences about oviparous animals and created a class fact file. We also made paper airplanes just liked Humpty Dumpty in the story then wrote a recount of how we made them.



We started the term looking at place value and will move on to addition and subtraction. We use lots of concrete resources and our courtyards.



We have started guided reading each morning from 9-9.20. Each class has different reading tasks and we use it as a great opportunity to encourage children to read for pleasure. Remember to read at home each day.



Our science topic is animals including humans and we focus on keeping ourselves healthy.



Our geography topic is pirates, we use this topic to look at the continents and oceans as well as locational and directional language.



Our computing topic is computing systems and networks. 


We started off the year with our whole school art project- flower power. Year 2 focused on the artist Kandinsky and his bold colourful circles.


In these lessons, we look at what keeps humans healthy and growing and changing.


Our indoor PE topic is gymnastics. We will look at balances, jumps, rolls and travelling then create simple routines using our movements. Our outdoor topic is multiskills we focus on running, jumping and agility during these lessons.
