Welcome to year 2. We have two year 2 classes, one called Ahlberg and the other called Dahl. Mrs Notey teaches in Ahlberg and Miss Skinner teaches in Dahl alongside Miss Adams, Miss 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.
Help! It’s on fire!
This half term we will be learning about another significant event in History: The Great Fire of London. We will start off the topic by roasting some marshmallows around our own fire in order to understand the dangers of fire as well as the effect that fire can have on things. Following this, we will learn about when the Great Fire of London was, the cause of the fire and the effects that it had on people’s lives at the time as well as the importance of learning about it now. We will also understand how the fire was prolonged due to a lack of fire brigades at that time and we will contrast this to the facilities that we have available to us today.
