Welcome to Year 2.

Mr Hawkins, Mrs Davies and Miss Clarke

 

Welcome to Year 2 - the Kingfishers class. 

We have an exciting year of fun-filled learning opportunities, trips and events that will promote learning and nurture our creativity and curiosity.

We will be enhancing our knowledge and skills through the development and demonstration of our core values and enterprise skills.

Keep yourself up to date with upcoming events and all of the fantastic learning taking place in the Kingfisher class through our class page.

Historical Detectives

Before focusing on queens and castles in more detail, we started our topic learning by becoming historical detectives! Looking at different sources (including using our reading skills when reading websites), we learnt about different famous, historical people. Do you recognise any of the figures in the photograph below? We now know key information about the famous people... ask us anything about them!

Marvellous Maths - place value

Our Maths learning this week continues our focus on the place value of two-digit numbers. To improve our understanding, we have been using Dienes to represent different numbers up to 100. We have applied this knowledge to partition numbers into tens and ones, as well as solving our first concept cartoons. Our mathematical reasoning is already improving - well done Kingfishers!

George and the Dragon

Our English lesson have taken a fiery twist this week, focusing on George and the Dragon. After reading and retelling the story to develop our oracy skills, there was a strange noise from outside. We crept outside and saw dragon prints, so we followed them and stumbled upon a nest... with two colourful dragon eggs inside! Bringing them back to the classroom, we wrote a letter to the dragon, encouraging it to return to take care of the new hatchlings. Take a look in our English books to see our fantastic writing!

Love of learning

What a fantastic first week back we have had in the Kingfisher class! We have learnt so much already and we are making progress in our writing and mathematics. The children have been outstanding as always and we know that we are going to have a superb year together.

As well as P.E, R.E, and Art, we have spent time in our school library in the afternoons, choosing books for our book corner. The whole class were very enthusiastic when exploring the library and selecting their books. We can't wait to start reading them together, especially after finishing our class book (The Megamogs and the Dangerous Doughnut)!

Queens and Castles

Our first topic of the year will see the Kingfishers exploring Queens and Castles! Keep an eye out for all of the exciting learning and work from the children on this incredibly exciting topic.
