Welcome to Dahl Class - Year 2
Our teachers are Mrs Snowden and Mrs Coleman.
In Year 2, we like to work hard and try our best. Find out what we'll be up to!
PE kits will need to be worn to school on Monday and Tuesday in Term 2. This consists of a plain white T-shirt and school jumper, plain dark blue or black shorts / leggings / jogging bottoms and trainers / daps.
We will change children's reading books weekly on a Friday. It is important that they experience reading these books with fluency so several reads during the week will be essential. With harder books (from Purple band onwards), please read some each night and recap events so far, also predicting what might happen next. On a second read, you may want to model and encourage expression - changing the tone of your voice to add excitement.
This term our theme is What makes me, me? We will learn about animals and humans - what they need to survive. We will also learn about how to keep our bodies fit and healthy. We will design and make healthy snacks. In addition, we will learn more about where our food comes from in our geography unit of work. Please refer to curriculum overviews and knowledge organisers for Term 1 (found in Curriculum Information).
This term our theme is 'Who were Florence Nightingale, Edith Cavell and Mary Seacole, and why do we remember them?' We will be learning about these famous nurses and comparing their lives. This term we will benefit from cricket lessons with a specialist cricket coach (COVID SAFETY MEASURES IN PLACE). As part of our Recovery Curriculum, we will have twice weekly SCARF lessons (PSHE scheme of work) to ensure that children know how to stay physically and mentally healthy. We will enjoy lots of art and crafts activities, especially when Christmas approaches! Our book this term is The Magic Paintbrush by Julia Donaldson. Please refer to the curriculum map and overviews for Term 2.
