Welcome to Year Two
Meet the Teaching Staff
Our names are Miss Hawkins in Major Oak class and Mrs Cox in Robin Hood class and we are lucky enough to teach Year 2. We also work alongside Mrs Glover and Mrs Fletcher.
Autumn 2 Overview
This half term the children will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We will be looking at how London has changed since 1666. We will be looking at how and where the fire started, why it spread and why it lasted so long. As well as this we will be looking at how fire safety had to change for the better.
In English, we will be looking at writing diary entries, recounts as well as instructions and information booklets regarding fire safety.
In Maths, we will be focussing on multiplication and division as well as time, position and direction.
In Science, we will be concentrating on materials and their properties.
In Art, the children will be creating some Great Fire of London skyline pictures.
Please continue to record in your child’s school diary when they have read to be in with a chance of receiving certificates and a prize at the end of term. This can also be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers and they will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day.
AUTUMN 2 HOMEWORK
Please click on the link to view our homework for this half term. In addition to the Bingo Homework, we would like the children to practise the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables as well as learn the Year 1 and 2 spellings in the children’s reading diaries.
PE is every Tuesday and Wednesday. We ask the children to bring kit suitable for indoor and outdoor sessions. Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly named. This should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
As teachers, we know that what may seem a little problem to an adult, can be a massive problem to a child – so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child!
