Welcome to Year 2

Spring Term in Year 2

The children in Year 2 have made an excellent start to the Spring Term.  Already this term we have have focused our learning around our topic of ‘Light and Dark’.  We have undertaken a range of writing around the key non-fiction texts of Beegu by A.Deacon and Simon Bartram’s stories of Bob, Man on the Moon.  The children did some fantastic Big Write’s – stories and poscards.  In the second half of the term we will be looking at stories by the same author which will be Anthony Browne.  We are also linking our learning to ‘The Great Fire of London and children have undertaken their own non fiction writing. Chinese New Year was also a great stimulus for story writing.

Scientific investigations have taken place around the themes of plants and animals and then electricity in the second half of the term.  We will be using our learning around electricity to construct working lighthouses and write in the genre of instruction.

Maths follows the National Framework and a really useful link below supports children’s skills in an engaging and interactive way.

These themes are also brought to life through focus artists such as Kandinsky and Van Gogh
