As year 2 is the end of key stage 1 it is a crucial time to pull all the KS1 objectives together to ensure that each child has the opportunity to meet Age Related Expectations. Children are given the opportunity to retake their Year 1 phonics test if required. During May of the school year children in Year 2 take part in the SATS tests in Reading and Numeracy. Throughout the year we will be taking part in a range of learning activities to secure the skills the children will reach their potential.
Each term our learning is linked to a topic and core reading book. This term our topic is 'Our Diverse World' through which the children will explore the local area, looking at how the local area has changed since our Grandparents were younger and how they might improve their surroundings as part of a local study. We will also be comparing where we live with a contrasting location. The children will be learning how to name the different continents and seas of the World.
As always our reading and writing will be developed using our fantastic class reader texts as inspiration. We have some wonderful books to share this term including the ''Little People, Big Dreams story of Amelia Earheart'', ''Meerkat Mail'' by Emily Gravett and ''Flat Stanley'' by Jeff Brown. We cannot wait for you to see the fantastic work we will create!
In our Science we are exploring animals and their habitats. We are looking forward to getting outside as Springtime approaches and exploring the different microhabitats our school has to offer, as well as the surrounding area. We will be also looking at how animals find their food and exploring simple food chains.
Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday.
We have also started exploring our own digital library as part of our ongoing reading development. Check it out here https://www.getepic.com/classroom/rws1686/mrs-taylor
