Meet the teaching team
Mrs Crew, Mrs Hays and Mr Goodall are delighted to be teaching in Year 2, this year supported by Mrs Priestley and Mrs Wilkes.
We are really looking forward to an exciting year working with the Year 2 children, parents and carers.
We held a welcome meeting at the start of term, where we shared lots of useful information about the learning and end of year expectations for Year 2. You can see a copy of the information below.
Our Learning this term - Autumn 2019
The first half of the Autumn term will focus on science. We will explore what it takes to become a 'Champion for Life' including looking at the importance of exercise, food groups, eating a balanced diet and health and hygiene. We will be working scientifically to answer the question, which exercise makes my heart beat faster?
Autumn Term 2 2019
Next half term we will be learning about alternative traditional tales and looking at how music can enhance a story. We will be exploring Jack and the Beanstalk through different media and looking at alternative versions of the story. We will also be creating musical compositions and linking them to characters from the story.
