Dormice (Year 2 AS)


Parents Evening - Loom Subject Information

Every Autumn, we usually invite parents into school to share with you learning strategies and expectations to support your child with learning in Year 2. This year we have had to record these presentations for you to view at your leisure in the comfort of your own home. Please click on the link below to view the presentation. You can also find the PowerPoint presentations in the file section.

Welcome back, Dormice!

Welcome back, Dormice! I hope you and all of your families have had a restful half-term break and are ready to get back learning!

Our Autumn 2 topic is ‘After Dark'. We will be reading The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson and our writing will focus on persuasiveness as a theme, including letter writing as a genre. In Maths, we will consolidate Autumn 1's learning on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, and begin to look at Money as our measurement unit, and Multiplication and Division. In Topic, this half-term will include opportunities in Science to consolidate habitats and things that are living and non-living, as well as introduce food chains and partake in some exciting practical investigations. In RE we will explore the question: Why does Christmas matter to Christians?

All Year 2 children successfully settled back in to school life brilliantly in Autumn 1. this half-term is still very much about consolidating this and making sure their health and wellbeing is of paramount importance. Therefore, we may still revisit many areas of the Year 1 and 2 curriculum's as part of our Phoenix curriculum to make sure we are all 'Stronger, Smarter and More Powerful' in our life and learning.
