We were inspired by the work of Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. Using manipulation and joining techniques we created our own sculptures.
Dear Parents / Carers,
Welcome back to the Spring Term. We hope that you had a peaceful and restful Christmas and wish you a Happy New Year.
In the Spring Term in Year 2 routines will continue as they did in the Autumn Term. P.E. will still be on Mondays and Thursdays and Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Blackmore and Mr. Posnett will continue to teach on the same days as last term.
This term we continue to work on a range of skills in English and Mathematics. Mrs. Blackmore will continue working with the children of both classes to develop their spelling skills.
In our topic work we will be looking at maps, atlases and globes in Geography, particularly learning the names and locations of the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We will also be learning about directional language including the points of the compass. This work will be supported in computing by programming the Beebots to follow a course! We will move onto looking at Buxton and using our mapping skills to map parts of Buxton, including special buildings in the town. We hope to also learn about the history of some of these buildings.
Mrs. Blackmore will be teaching a topic on materials in Science. Mr. Hill will develop the children’s skills in passing and receiving a ball and will work on their tactics and teamwork in his P.E. lessons.
In RE we will consider what it means to belong to a faith group and in Music the children will learn how to play the glockenspiel with Mrs. Shaw.
Homework this term will be the following:
Reading – please try to read with your children frequently at home. Please discuss their reading with them and encourage them to ask and answer questions about what they have read and to read with expression.
Spellings – Mrs. Blackmore will provide weekly spellings and will test them the following week.
A homework activity each week – This will either be some Maths or some English work.
We are sure that the Spring Term will be an exciting one for all of us in Year 2. As always, if you have a worry please pop in to school to chat to us about it. Thanks for your continued support.
Mrs. Bailey, Mrs. Blackmore and Mr. Posnett
The Year 2 Team
