Magnolia Class - Year 2
Welcome to Magnolia Class!
Our class teacher is Mrs Salkeld and our teaching assistant is Mrs McCloughin. We are looking forward to you all returning to school for our autumn term. Obviously, the children have missed a considerable amount of school so we will be easing them into year 2 gently.
Meet the teacher and find out about our class
Our Autumn Curriculum
We have lots of rewards available for children to earn for behaviour, effort and handwriting as well as brilliant work!
English - We will spend the first few weeks reading and writing about The Way Home for Wolf and then move onto stories by Allan Albright, including the popular Funnybones.
Maths - We will spend lots of time cementing place value and simple addition and subtraction problems. We make maths lessons as practical as we can to support the children's understanding.
Science - Our topic is 'Animals, growing and staying healthy'. We will look at how humans and animals grow and what we need to stay happy and healthy.
Topic - Our History topic is 'Florence Nightingale'. We will learn about all the amazing work she did. The children love to learn about this time and dress up in our role play area.
Our Geography topic is 'Where we live' and the children will be reading and drawing maps and plans of the local area.
Art - We are learning about line and colour, and will be using the works of Gaston Chaissac and Pablo Picasso as inspiration for portraits.
Music - We will be continuing to explore different genres and we will be using body percussion to compose and perform a number of tunes.
PSHE - As children have been away from school for an extended time this year, we will be focusing on well-being throughout the first half-term.
PE - We will have a PE lesson on Mondays up until October half-term. Please send your child into school on Mondays in a pair of navy jogging bottoms, a pair of trainers, their PE t-shirt and their school jumper or cardigan.
