Welcome to Year 2
Miss C. Mullen
There are so many new, fun and exciting learning opportunities for us this year in Year 2 and I know you are all going to really enjoy becoming more independent and learning all of the topics that are going to be covered.
In History, we will be looking into some key events in History such as The plague, The Great Fire of London, WW11 and the trade around Whitehaven. In Geography we are going to be learning map and fieldwork skills, looking at maps and aerial views of our local area and comparing to other places around the world.
Our Science journey will continue studies in living things and their habitats and animal life cycles, and we will find out more about materials, seasons and healthy living.
We will focus on our ICT skills this year, enabling us to research, use iPads and basic software programs. In Art we will explore sketching and the use of colour and shading. We will create models in DT and design for a purpose. In RE we will look at some other major faiths and think about how we all celebrate in different ways. In music this year we will continue focusing on songs of the week and also play the guitars and drums. We will have a huge focus on PE this year, encouraging gross motor skills and competition, displaying a progression in skills.
Best of all, there are many fantastic books for us to read, listen to and study this year some of which we will link to our writing, others that we will enjoy purely for pleasure!
It’s going to be a great year!
