Welcome to Year 2's class web page. Here you will be able to find the latest information about what Year 2 are currently learning.

See our latest class newsletter - Click Here..

Our topic this term is 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures'.

Let's get messy! Let's get creative. Let's explore materials. Dive in get your hands and feet covered in paint or clay or shaving foam. Have you played in jelly? Have you experienced cornflour? What happens when you mix water with sugar?

This topic we will investigate lots of different materials and see how they change when we mix them or heat them or both! We will learn about the artist Carl Warner and his food art and create some of our own. Our class book is George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dhal. Why is Grandma so horrible and what does George do to her?

How do you write a recipe? Can we write an adventure story? How do you make a stop motion animation video? All these things we will learn during our topic.

Have a go at three of thye topic homeworks in your homework book and record what you did. Have fun!

0ee7e673d84778d7a7d9We have signed up to Mathletics, a program your child can access at home to practise their maths skills. They can be set home work, practise topics we have been doing in class as well as play maths games to improve their speed and accuracy in answering maths questions. Have fun and if you have any questions we will be running a parents session very soon.

Reading Books

All children have a reading book and most children also have a library book. These are changed every week. Reading books will be changed when we hear a child read and if we feel they are ready for a new book. Year 2's library session is on a Monday. Children need to bring their library book in every week to get it changed.

It is important to hear your child read at home and to share books and talk about what they have read. Ask questions as you are reading.

For example - What do you think happens next? Who is your favourite character and why? Did you like this story? What was your favourite bit?

Homework:
