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 team are Miss Kent and Mrs. Sibley, who support the children with their learning.
What a busy/ strange start to the year we have had! Thank you for your continued support, kind messages and understanding with our remote learning.
Last half term we learnt about the Great Fire of London and our concept is Change. We looked at a virtual 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! This will be linked to our History topic- HMS Victory and Horatio Nelson. We will look at the life on board a ship and the life of Horatio Nelson and how his life has impacted and shaped our lives today. We will also be looking at what life was like back in the olden days compared to now.

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 HMS victory and Horatio Nelson 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.
Stage One is short term Remote Education Support (RES) as most families who are awaiting Covid 19 test results are off for 2 to 3 days.

We would expect that if the child is not symptomatic that this work will be completed. If your child is poorly, we would ask you to make the judgement as to what you feel they can or can’t do.
