Year 2 2019 - 2020
Welcome to year 2!
Miss Brake, Miss Owen and Mrs Woods
Wriggle and Crawl
Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt. Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions, just like a real entomologist. Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey. Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly.
In year 2, children are expected to be able to recall their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Hit the button is a great website to help the children to practise this.
This half term we will be exploring the book Major Glad and Major Dizzy. The book will take us through the life of two toy soldiers from 1870 to the present day. We will then be writing a diary entry in role as the soldiers all about their experience of the Blitz.
PE will be on a Tuesday with Youth Kicks coaching.
