Welcome to Year 2! We've had such a great year to date - I can't believe we've reached the Summer term already! In Autumn we learnt lots about weather with our Extreme Weather topic. We learned how to measure different types of weather, had great fun filming our own weather reports and LOVED designing and making our own flood-resistant houses.  


In Spring, we kicked off our Cracking Ideas topic - we looked at inventors and inventions and then moved to a focus on heroes - complete with Superhero costume day! We also had lots of giggles learning about levers in our Lift the Teacher challenge! 


This term we will be going on an Australian Adventure - we've started off with a BANG during our WOW day where we did lots of Aboriginal dot painting and even learnt how to play a didgeridoo! I can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings!

Our Curriculum

This year we have some super topics lined up - Extreme Weather (Autumn), Cracking Ideas (Spring) and Australian Adventure (Summer)! I'll be uploading the curriculum maps each term so you can find out exactly what we are covering (see files below). There is also a booklet with the end of year expectations for year 2.

 

We love to share our learning using twitter - please follow us @Year2_pps

 

Take a look at our curriculum map (below) to find out more about what we’re learning this term.

Kinetic Letters

 

We've been working really hard on improving our handwriting using Kinetic Letters. Kinetic Letters helps us make our bodies stronger, hold our pencil correctly, and form our letters using six key movements. 

There is some information and ideas for helping at home in the files at the bottom of the page for your information. 

The children really enjoy learning letter formations in different ways and we've seen such an improvement already. We are so proud of the children for their hard work!
