Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page!

This page has lots of important information for careers and parents about home learning and the curriculum topics we are currently learning in Year 2. 

If you have any questions please feel free to approach: 

  • Mr Chadwick (Teacher)
  • Miss Buckingham (Teaching Assistant)

Even though spring hasn’t yet sprung in the weather, Year 2 have definitely sprung to action this half term!

A busy half term has seen us show off our performance skills not once, not twice, but three separate times. Rave reviews followed our class assembly and we soon followed up that wonderful performance with a reflection on how the story of Noah affects us today and points us towards “The Greatest Story Ever Told” – the Easter story of salvation for all – at our family service.

In class the children have been working on making electrical circuits though I’m not sure they’re quite ready to fix any faulty electricals you have at home yet… The children have also written TWO narrative tales in English this half term. One based on 'The Man on the Moon' and another based on John Klassen’s “I want my hat back.” The second book became a firm favourite. In between our stories we managed to squeeze in a newspaper report telling the real life story of Neil Armstrong and friends as they went to the moon.

DT has seen us making rockets AND sewing our own binca art – they really have worked hard!   During Maths we’ve swept away fraction as if they were as simple as eating a whole or one of two equal parts (half) of the cake!

Thanks as ever for your support in the children’s home learning, it really shows in their class work.

Keep reading and have a lovely Easter.

Best wishes

Daniel Chadwick
