Welcome to Penguin Class and Crocodile Class!
Y2 love to learn! Over the next few months we will be reviewing our previous learning to ensure that our knowledge is embedded and ultimately to make us secure and confident learners.
Our key area of focus is reading where we are embedding our RWI strategies, exploring a range of class stories and reading a multitude of texts across all lessons to build our fluency, vocabulary, knowledge, understanding and empathy. In Y2 we just love to read!
This term we are learning about how Welton and Lincoln have changed over time and how toys and technology have changed over time. We have a number of different sources to explore.
In art, our current focus artist is Bruegel. We have looked at his famous painting ‘Children’s Games’ and are in the process of creating our own digital images with a modern take on children’s games. We look forward to learning about William Morris and creating our own wallpaper towards the end of the term.
Design and technology focuses on using our knowledge about the tank and mechanisms to create our own moving vehicles. This will take a lot of perseverance but we’re determined to figure it out.
In PE, we are becoming tennis stars! Watch this space!
We are excited about our plants focus in Science. We can’t wait to do some planting and observe our plants’ progress in different conditions.
We will be very busy with all of our different learning hats on, so keep checking on twitter, Facebook and particularly Seesaw to see what we are up to!
