Learning in Year 2
Autumn – Moods
The children have been introduced to The Owl Babies story by Martin Waddell. We have talked about the thoughts and feelings of the owls in the story and related these to the children’s own experiences. The children have shown an interest in learning more about owls and they know that we will be getting a special visit from some owls! In Art and Music the children will be finding out how moods are expressed in different ways.
Spring – Journeys
Starting with the Katie Morag story books the children will learn about the journeys that the main character takes. The children themselves will make journeys in the local area when we hope to take advantage of our school minibus!
Summer – Differences
During this topic the children will explore the differences between past and present, particularly focusing on childhood. This is also the perfect opportunity for the children to develop their understanding of our partner school children in Sierra Leone.
Your child will receive home learning tasks and spellings each Friday. Most weeks the children will have Talk Homework when they will be asked to discuss a specific topic with an adult at home related to learning in class. On the last Friday of each month we will give the children a written piece of homework, usually English or Maths. They will be given an informal spelling test each Friday which they will complete in the back of their reading task books so you can see how they have done!
