Year 2 Miss Hales

Hello and welcome to our home page!

In Year 2, our class teacher is Miss Hales and our Class Teaching Assisstant is Miss Morley.  On this page, you can find out about the learning that takes place in the classroom. Our learning links to specific topics that are designed to be taught across a two term time period. You can use this page to find out more about the topics we focus on. The page also contains a summary of what we will learn about in each topic. We hope you enjoy having a look at our page!

This term we will be looking at the topic 'Seaside Holidays!'

History and Geography

Children will learn about the seaside and how it has changed over time. The children will order seaside holidays along a timeline and discuss the similarities and differences they notice. The children will draw a map and add a suitable key using their own ideas.

The Arts

Children will be learning the different ways to collage materials. They will learn the techniques to cut a range of fabrics and the ways to overlap them to create a scene.

Science

Children will be learning about worldwide habitats and the animals that live in them. They will research the different features of animals which mean that they can survive in various habitats. For example - a polar bear has claws to grip to the ice.

PE and Healthy Lifestyles

During PE lessons, children will be practising key throwing and catching skills. With our PE coach, the children will be learning tennis skills. Children will develop their understanding of the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercise. Please ensure PE kits are in school Monday to Friday.

Learning for Life

Children will have the opportunity to develop their enterprise skills throughout the term focussing on risk taking, problem solving, team work and decision making. In our Life Sim lesson the children will learn different ways to organise and manage their own time and learning. During philosophy sessions the children will discuss belonging and differences between themselves and other groups. They will continue to ask questions about matters that interest them.
