Matisse-Year 2

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 



Welcome to the Matisse class page of our school website.


The Year 2 Class Teacher is Miss Kent. Our LSAs are Ms Nielson (Monday AM, Wednesday AM and Friday AM) and Mrs King (Tuesday and Thursday).


What a busy start to the year we have had! We focused on our Key Concept of ‘Belonging’ and looked at where we belong in our school, community, village, country and world. We were able to compare and contrast this with the lives of Kenyan children during our Geography lessons. We loved being able to share our learning with you during our Focus Assembly!


This half term our concept is Courage and we are linking this with our Geography topic on Antarctica. We will be looking at how Captain Scott showed courage on his expedition. We will also be looking at how we have shown courage in our own lives. We will linking this to Remembrance Day and thinking about how the soldiers have shown courage and what would have happened if they hadn’t. This will lead to our Exit Outcome where we will be thinking about showing Courageous Advocacy and how we can make a difference in the world around us.

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. We will look at instructional writing linked to “The Gingerbread Man”. 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.


In RE this half term we will be thinking about the key question “Why does Christmas matter to Christians?” We will be exploring what ‘Incarnation’ means and sharing the Christmas story, we will be looking for signs that Christmas is coming and thinking about how we should be thankful and kind at Christmas time.



Remember to check the school twitter to see what the children are doing.
