Year 2

WELCOME TO CLASS 2
 
 
Greetings from your class teacher:
 Ms Lucas
Our fantastic TAs are Ms Nott and Mrs. Faith
 
Our learning journey this half term...
 
This term our learning challenge is "How can you grow your own salad?"
 
Within this topic, the children will grow their own plants. The children will learn about scarecrows and the life cycle of chickens. The children will find out what all living things need to grow and survive. 
 
The children will have the opportunity to write an information text all about living things. They will learn about the life cycle of plants and animals. Later in the term, children will find out where the vegetables in their salad come from and the children will learn about the importance of eating a healthy and balanced diet.
 
This term, the children will be looking at practical maths. They will learn about measurement and length. The children will also continue learning to tell the time. They will practise telling the time including o'clock, half past, quarter past and a quarter to. We will then develop the ability to practise telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Any extra help you can give your child in telling the time will really help them in class.
 
In RE, we begin by reflecting on the Pentecost. Children will roleplay the Pentecost and reflect on the meaning behind the story. 
Class 2 have been busy preparing for the Christmas International market!
Great morning spent with author Tracey Corderoy  and Illustrator Steven Lenton.  Lots of fun and inspiration! 
 
Please enjoy listening to the children retell part of 'Lila and the Secret of Rain'.
Class 2's trip to Dartmoor Zoo
We found some dinosaur eggs in our classroom! We used scientific words to compare the different eggs and predicted which dinosaur each egg belonged to. 
The day class 2 met Neil Armstrong! We made rockets and watched Neil Armstrong blast his own rocket into space.
Class 2 had a fantastic day at Pennywell Farm meeting Father Christmas.
"All hail the Queen, all hail the King"
