Year 2

Year 2

Teacher: Ms Walker

Support Staff: Mrs Dias


Dear parents,

We would like to extend a warm welcome  to you. In Year 2 we look forward to working with all students to help them to grow into individuals of good character and show God’s presence in their lives. We will also work on their academic targets to help them achieve their potential.

We have been asking God to help us at every beginning.

Think…… 

Why are some beginnings easy and some difficult?

Will there be many new beginnings in your life?

 

This term we will be learning all about the Great fire of London

Think…….

Why is it so important to learn about the past?

How did the fire begin?

How did it stop?

Who rebuilt London?

Who wrote about the Great Fire of London?

 

Science

Uses of everyday materials…

In this Topic children use their knowledge and understanding of materials when they describe a variety of ways of sorting them into groups according to their properties. They explain simply why some materials are particularly suitable for specific purposes [for example, glass for windows, copper for electrical cables]. They recognise that some changes [for example, the freezing of water] can be reversed and some cannot, and they classify changes in this way.

Uses of everyday materials
Pupils will be taught to:
• identify and compare the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses
• find out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.
