Hello and welcome back!
Year 2 is going to be brilliant with lots of hard work but lots of fun involved as well.
Our teacher this year is Mrs Royston and Miss Quinn will work with us on a Monday. Mrs Nutton and Mrs Sheard will be with us as well.
This term we will be learning all about Africa and some of the countries within it. We will be comparing and contrasting Africa and the UK and learning about some of the amazing animals that live there. We will be accessing art, D&T, geography and history skills within the unit.
In science our first unit will be animals and their habitats. We will learn about animal habitats, food chains and things that are living, dead and never alive.
Maths will be focussing mainly on number and place value this half term to ensure that our knowledge is cemented before moving on.
In English we will be using the book Meerkat Mail as a stimulus for our own writing before moving onto non-fiction writing. E.g. Lists, labels and captions.
We are going to start the year running so we MUST remember our reading books every day, learn our spellings and do our homework every week and read as much as we can.
PE is on a Tuesday morning so we will ensure that we have the correct PE kit in school every week.
