Year 2

Welcome to Mrs Cody’s and Miss Smith’s class

Wild

This term the children in Year 2 have begun to look at the first of our class reading book sets, ‘Wild’ by Emily Hughes.  They are learning lots of new technical terms for the language we use in English such as nouns, verbs, adjectives and prepositions.  The story also enables the children to make links with their science topic, Habitats, which is taught by the fabulous Mr Bates, who the children just love. 

In geography this half term the children will be learning all about the oceans and continents of the world, so remember to use the knowledge organiser to ask them lots of questions.

We have some wonderful new schemes of work that the children are being introduced to such as Power Maths, and wonderful spelling and handwriting books which the children are loving.  These will link nicely with the weekly spellings that the children will be learning.

Shining Lights of Year 2

Betsy McCleod and Louis Morgan were both nominated as the Shining Lights of Year 2.  I’m sure they will do us extremely proud.
