Welcome to the Matisse class page of our school website.
The year 2 team are Miss Kent and Mrs Sibley, who supports the children with their learning.
They are have enjoyed hearing about your experiences over the summer, seeing how much you have grown and helping you learn.
This half term our Key Concept is Belonging where we will be looking at how and where we belong. We will also be comparing and contrasting this with life in Kenya linking to our Geography topic.
Find out about how our new curriculum links with our key concept in the Autumn overview and newsletter further down this page
This half term in RE we will be learning about God. We will be thinking about what Christians believe God is like. We will identify what a parable is. Giving clear and simple accounts of what the stories from the bible mean to Christians. We will think, talk and ask questions and then reflect about whether we can learn anything from the stories for ourselves, exploring different ideas. We will link in parts of the digging deeper Y2 Creation unit where we will spend time appreciating the world.
This term in English lessons this half term, we will be following the recovery curriculum set out by Hampshire. They have chosen 6 Key texts (Traditional tales and Fables) to support the children with the objectives and curriculum missed this year. The plans are progressive to cover Year 1 objectives and then start to add in and work up to Year 2 level.
For Maths we will be following the recovery curriculum set out by Hampshire. This is a 12 week plan that links to our spiral curriculum, we will start to recap and cover any missed Year 1 objectives building up to the Year 2 objectives. In our Maths lessons, we will be focussing on numbers and the number system; learning number facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Any practise or games you can play at home with your child would be beneficial. We will be revisiting number bonds, doubles and halves.
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.
Below you will find:
- Concept Curriculum for the current half term.
- Maths and English – We will be providing 3 activities i.e. up to 3 days work, that links DIRECTLY to the Maths and English planning the class will be following that week.
- 6 (KS1) Ways at Once. This provides a range of work that fits the current class concept and work that would be covered over the half term in class. This covers most of the Foundation Subjects and will change each half term when the concept changes.
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.
