Welcome to Year 2.
In Year 2 we aim high and believe that with effort, everything is achievable.
The staff in Year 2 are Mr Gill, Mrs Mcfall, Mrs Mattu and Mrs Hussain.
We work together like a family, with support from our teachers Mr Gill and Mrs Mcfall, to make our classroom a loving, caring and happy place.
Our current topic is Castles
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls, head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower and meet Rapunzel! Let’s build a brand-new castle! Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it?
This term Year 2 will go back in time and learn about castles. We will be going on an exciting trip to visit Warwick Castle where we will learn about the grounds and parts of a castle, where they were built and why. In geography we will explore fieldwork through the comparison of aerial photographs, looking at the difference between physical geography where the castles were built and the city where we live. In design technology we will design, make, and evaluate our junk model castles complete with working parts and putting our measuring skills to the test! In Science we will be learning about animals and their habitats and how they are well adapted to live in certain environments.
P.E in Year 2 takes place on Tuesdays.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is expected back on the Tuesday.
The expectations for reading in Year 2 is that every child reads their home reader for at least 10 minutes a day.
