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 

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 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.

 

In the second part of last term we concentrated on our concept of Courage and linked this with our Geography topic on Antarctica. We looked at how people showed courage when exploring across Antarctica.

 

This half term we are learning about the Great Fire of London and our concept is Change. We will be starting our topic with a dirty, old chest with cheese, wine and a diary inside. See if the children can tell you why! Hopefully, we will finish with our very own miniature Great Fire of Eversley and thinking about what we can do in the wider world to change things so that we can reduce the destruction that fires cause.

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 first half term we will be writing adventure/ fantasy stories about dragons and information texts about fire, linked to our first topic about The Great Fire of London.

 

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 learning about Hinduism with a focus on the Hindu festival of Holi.
