Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Mrs Harrand, Mrs Rippon, Mrs Moulds, Mrs Fiddler and Mrs Crowther are on the team this year

Our topic this half term is Our Wonderful World. We will be exploring living things and their habitats as well as studying plants. In maths we will be learning about faces, shapes and patterns and revisiting mental addition of pairs of 2-digit numbers by partitioning or counting on. In English our text for this term is Wolves in the Walls by Neil Gaiman. We will be retelling the story from the wolves point of view, writing persuasive texts and building tension through vocabulary choice.

A few reminders!
