Year 2

Miss Clowes is our Year 2 teacher and Mrs Rose is our teaching assistant.

We have studied the Gruffalo, The Enchanted Forest and Into the Tunnel in English. During the second half of the Autumn term we had new adventures where our Superheroes explored our classroom. Our story writing was inspired by the Adventures of Traction Man by Mini Grey.

In the second half of the Spring term, Year 2 are continuing their topic on Superheroes.  We will be learning about superheroes from the past including Mary Seacole and Rosa Parks. In Science we will be learning about materials. We will be finding out which fabric stretches the most, sorting materials and testing them for their durability and toughness. In English we will be continuing to look at The Traction Man stories, looking at descriptions of a setting, letter writing and instructions. In Maths we will be learning about multiplication and division, focussing on our 2,5, and 10 times table. Mr Smith will be teaching us P.E and Mrs Thompson-Smith will be teaching our music lessons.

We are a very enthusiastic and lively class who want to learn! We are working really hard on climbing our reading ladder and are determined to increase the quanitity and presentation of our writing.
