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, Mrs. Sibley and Mrs. Johnson who all support the children with their learning.
We have enjoyed hearing about your experiences over the summer, seeing how much you have grown and beginning your Year 2 learning journey with you all.
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 for our Geography topic.
This half term in RE we are looking at ‘Creation’; we will be exploring Genesis 1. We will spend time appreciating the world around us, before thinking about the role we can all play in helping to look after our world. We will be looking at how the universe and human life are God’s good creation. Also, how humans are made in the image of God.
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. This half term, we will begin by reading and writing stories and poems from other cultures, with a focus on Kenya. We will look at instructional writing linked to “The Gingerbread Man” and we will write recipes and instructions for Kenyan food as part of our design and technology topic. We are also going to write letters linked to “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”.
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.
Remember to check the school twitter or the autumn newsletter to see in more detail what the children will be doing.
