Welcome to Year 2! We are a class of twenty two enthusiastic children in Key Stage 1.
Our topic this term is ‘Busy Bodies’. and part of our work will answer the question, ‘What can our amazing bodies do?’ We will learn about the way our bodies move, and will compare PE in school now and in the past. We will also study a timeline of medicine and focus on Florence Nightingale as an important historical figure in this field. In our Geography work we will make a record of the weather at this time of year and think about how we respond to it.
In English, we will be linking our work to the story, ‘Flat Stanley’ by Jeff Brown and to poems about our senses.
During the second half of the term, our topic will be ‘All creatures great and small’ and we are very excited to start this off with a trip to Twycross Zoo.
In Mathematics, we will focus on areas of mathematics, such as geometry, measurement and statistics during the first part of the week. During the second part of the week, we will be working upon developing our place value knowledge and learning about addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions. We practise our Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) for ten minutes each day too.
Our topics for Science this term are ‘Animals and their habitats’, and ‘Animals including humans’, and one of the questions we will be answering is “What is a living thing?”. We will be talking about life processes and also different habitats (micro habitat, local habitat and world habitat).
On a Thursday afternoon [PPA day] the children will have French, music and PE with Madame Allenby, Mr Welsford and Mr Martin. There will be two sessions each afternoon and these will rotate so that the children will get an even amount of all three subjects.
