Our teacher is Mr Stilwell, working alongside him is Miss High, our teaching assistant. We want to develop a passion and thirst for learning in Year 2. Across our topics and in Literacy we cover both History and Geography objectives that create many opportunities for cross-curricular learning, creating exciting challenges each day that are delivered through carefully planned lessons that address the children’s learning styles and help develop their curiosity.

In Maths we use Maths No Problem, this programme ensures that all the small steps are taught so that pupils master the maths curriculum through fluency and problem solving.

In Literacy, pupils are split between two programmes, Read Write Inc. and Talk for Writing. Throughout Year 2 we want children to engage in and understand our key texts, develop their grammar, speaking and listening skills and build on ideas to write their own fiction and non-fiction texts

In the Spring Term, Year 2 are focusing on the topic ‘One small step for man…one giant leap for Year 2’ learning about famous explorers and thinking about the risks they took to explore our world and new worlds. In Geography we are learning how to use maps, following on from our work on identifying continents in the autumn term. We are going to be composing songs and adding music to lyrics in Music, using a range of tuned and untuned percussion. We will draw inspiration from the great explorers when composing our music. In Art we are going to be studying the work of George Seurat.
As spring approaches in March we will be looking at the changes of seasons in Science and linking this to our RE work, exploring new life as the plants grow and thinking about how this relates to the Easter message.
