Welcome to year 2. We have two year 2 classes, one called Alberg and the other called Dahl. Mrs Notey teaches in Alberg and Miss Skinner teaches in Dahl alongside Mrs Morrall and Miss Adams as a teaching assistants.
We really work on our fluency of reading in year 2 so its important that we read at home every single day. We read a lot in school too. We want to be able to read fluently ready for being in year 3. We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports. Don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!
Our PE lessons are on Wednesday. You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.
This half term we will be learning about Queen Victoria and exploring what it was like during the Victorian times. Children will begin their learning journey by recapping their learning about Queen Elizabeth from year 1 and recalling facts that we know about her. We will then learn about Queen Victoria and discover how significant she was and what she did that has had an impact on the way we live today. Through this journey, children will learn what life was like during the Victorian times and compare and contrast to how we live our lives now. Children will also learn about the properties and uses of different materials. Through learning about the Victorian era, we will understand which material might be the best to make a Victorian toy out of!
We will use key historical skills such as compare and contrasting which will help us to understand how Significant Queen Victoria was and how she has helped the way we live today.
