Welcome to Matisse - Year 2!
In Matisse class…
We show RESPECT,
We are KIND,
We LISTEN to everybody,
We LOOK AFTER our classroom
We always TRY OUR BEST
And ENJOY LEARNING!
Welcome to the Matisse class page of our school website.
The Year 2 Class Teacher is Miss Kent. Our LSAs are Mrs. King, Mrs. Nevitt (Monday- Wednesday AM) and Mrs. Sewell (Thursday and Friday AM).
Last half term we learnt about the Great Fire of London and our concept was Change. We looked at a dirty, old chest with cheese, wine and a diary inside. Let’s hope the children can remember who it belonged too. We all thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the Great Fire of London!
This half term our Key Concept is Perseverance, which we all need to use more than ever right now! We will be starting this topic with a day in the life of a sailor where the children will take part in their very own re-enactment of life on board The Titanic. We will finish the topic with a trip to the SeaCity Museum to learn about The Titanic and how people on board had to show perseverance. We will think about how we can link this with our own experiences.
Find out about how our new curriculum links with our key concept in the Spring overview further down this page.
Throughout the term we will be continuing to develop the children’s reading and writing throughout the curriculum. Our daily English lessons will, where possible, tie in with our curriculum topics. In the second half term we will be linking our writing to Titanic and life onboard a ship where possible.
In our Maths lessons we will continue to focus on basic skills, developing the children’s speed and accuracy with number facts and embedding times table knowledge. We will continue to consolidate and develop methods to choose from when using the following operations +, -, x and ÷, with increasingly bigger numbers.
This half term in RE we will be building on work from Year 1 exploring the Easter story and why Easter matters to Christians. We will be learning more about the events that took place in Holy Week and signs of Easter we might see in the church. The children will explore how Christians try to follow Jesus’ example of forgiveness and will reflect on this is their own lives.
