Welcome to Year 2
Miss Byrne, Miss Ellis and Mrs Constantine teach in Year 2.
'What Makes Manchester Special?'
This is the main question we will try to answer this half term through our learning. This will include learning about the geography of our local area, the history of Manchester during the industrial revolution and creating some fantastic art and music all inspired by Manchester!
We will be focusing on the book 'Belonging' by Jeannie baker, which is a colourful picture book. This will mean the students have to create the story the pictures show themselves. This will mean they will need to use their imaginations and creativity to write the story of 'Belonging'. We will be focusing specifically on creating expanded noun phrases, using conjunctions and continuing to form our sentences with capital letters and full stops in neat legible handwriting.
In maths, we will start the year focusing on place value and learning about the numbers up to 100. We will work on creating numbers with equipment and writing numbers in numerals and words.
In RE we are looking at Islam and different religious books.
Children will do football on a Monday and throwing and catching on a Friday morning in their PE sessions. Please ensure your children have the correct PE kit. I would advise girls to take tights off during PE and so they may need socks to wear with their trainers.
The students will get their homework for the following week on a Friday. They need to bring it in for the following Wednesday. Their spellings should be practised in their homework books and be brought in ready for their spelling test on Friday morning.
You are welcome to come to chat to us about your child's progress at any time - please make an appointment at the office.
Thank you for your continued support.
