Welcome to Year 2! We hope you are ready to learn as much as we are!
Our teachers are Miss McGann in 2A and Mrs Cahill in 2J. Our TA for the year is Mrs Madden.
Throughout the year, we will update this page with our current books and topics to help guide discussion and learning at home.
Throughout the Autumn Term, our Topic is 'London'. We will learn about it's location in regards to our local area in Geography, go back in time to The Great Fire of London in History and will be supplementing this with London based books, such as 'Katie in London' by James Mayhew in Literacy.
Our science theme this term is 'All About Me', im which we will be looking at how to keep healthy and how we change as we grow. We will also be making fitness videos for the school, so keep an eye out for those!
In Literacy, we will be focusing on refining the use of capital letters and full stops, whilst also advancing our use of adjectives and coordinating conjunctions. We will be writing stories, letters, diary entries and instructions, as well as questioning each other on our thoughts and opinions of characters and texts.
In Maths, our focus will be place value to begin, then moving on to addition, subtraction and multiplication. This will all be taught through the CPA approach-please look to our school policies page for the'Sacred Heart Calculation Booklet for Parents' for examples of how we teach these.
Our RE is still taught in half-termly topics. This half term it is 'In the Beginning' where we will be learning about the creation story.
Please read with your child EVERY DAY and record it in their reading records so that we can assess their progress.
If you have any further questions, please come and ask. We look forward to working with you throughout the year.
