Year 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 "What would it be like to travel to space?" The children will meet Neil Armstrong and begin the topic by making their own rockets to blast into space.
Within this topic, the children will learn about space and what it takes to become an astronaut. They will think carefully about what they would need to pack to take on a grand adventure.
Within our writing challenges, children will learn about year 2 punctuation and grammar. We will continue to use capital letters and full stops when writing sentences as well as question marks. We will learn about different types of words and try to make our writing really exciting by using a wide range of adjectives and conjunctions.
At the beginning of the Spring term, we will begin to look at multiplication and division. We will start by making and recognisng equal groups and we will think about multiplication as repeated addition. The children will practise their 2, 5 and 10 x table facts daily and any additional practise at home will really help your child in class.
In RE, we will think carefully about the Christmas story beginning with the Epiphany. We consider how the Christmas story teaches us about light and goodness.
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! 
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"
