Year 2 Slovakia
Welcome to class Slovakia!
Miss L Astill
PE Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays
Please ensure that FULL PE kit is worn to school on a Tuesday and Thursday. Children need to have their purple Welland shirt, black shorts or trousers and trainers.
Homework: Homework has changed slightly from last year. Children will need to be regularly checking the 'Home Learning' launchpad via airhead for websites that will further their learning. Alongside this, they must practice their reading daily. Children also have log ins for TT Rockstars and Doodle Maths which can also be completed as weekly homework.
Please also check our Slovakia Class on 'Teams' to see any messages regarding homework and other aspects of Academy life.
Reading: We ask all of our pupils to read every evening with an adult at home. Please ensure that reading records and reading books come into school each day. House points will be given to those children who do this.
Autumn Term 1
For the Spring Term our topic is Land Ahoy! This topic is all about pirates. We will be learning about life as a pirate. We will also be learning about some famous pirates and making our own pirate ships which we will test to see if they float or sink!
Autumn Term 2
This term we are learning all about Medieval Castles. We will be looking at William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings in 1066. We will also be learning about two different types of castles, Motte and Bailey and Keep and Bailey. We will be learning about the different features of castles and the people who lived inside castles. Unforutunately, we will not be able to visit a castle this term, but we will be having virtual tours of castles instead. We are all very excited about this topic!
In English, this term, we will be introducing a new fun way of learning following the scheme 'The Write Stuff'. The children will be using the writing rainbow to help them to develop their vocabulary and create lots of interesting sentences. We will working on a short Disney animation called 'Feast'.
In Maths we will be exploring place value and introducing numbers to 100. We will learn to add and subtract using practical resources and written methods. We will also be learning to count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s.

2. How do you know something is alive?
3. Can a crab live on land?
4. Are all shells the same?

We will be going on a trip to the sea life centre in Hunstanton to learn about creatures that live in the sea.
