Welcome to the Incredibles! Here you will find all of the fun learning that the Year 2 children are completing.
Let’s meet our “incredible” staff…
Miss Bailey, Miss Grocott, Miss Stubbs and Mrs Lewis
This page is intended to help you feel involved and informed of everything that we do.
Please take the time to explore our page where you will find lots of important information about your child's learning.
In our class, we encourage the children to be;
We are always ready to learn.
We are patient and we pay attention so that we can be super learners!
We look after each other and the school property.
We take care in all that we do.
We listen carefully so that we are safe at all times.
We use our kind hands and we follow the instructions all of the time.
For the Autumn 1 half term we will be enjoying the topic:
‘Why would a dinosaur not make a good pet?'
In this topic, we will be super scientists. We will classify things into living, dead or never lived and we will know how a specific habitat provides for the basic needs of things living there (plants and animals). We will also match living things to their habitat, name some different sources of food for animals, know about and explain a simple food chain.
In English, we will be completing lots of fun learning activities based on the stories of ‘The Gingerbread Man’ and ‘Red Riding Hood’ by Jonathon Langley. The children will be retelling and later innovating these stories. They will also use story maps and differentiated texts to help them write these narratives. We will be learning to plan our writing, breaking it up into beginning, middle and end, as well as correctly using their 'just do it' rules! As well as going on a journey into the world of narratives, the children will also write a non-chronological report about woodland animals, for example, wolves. We can't wait to see what the children achieve!

In Maths, our clever Mathematicians are learning about numbers up to 100. They will also be developing their knowledge of addition and subtraction. The children will learn to use methods such as column addition, column subtraction, using a number line, drawing tens and ones and using dienes to help them. If you need any support with helping your child at home, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher via Class Dojo.
This half term we will also be learning to tell a story through drawing in art. The children will develop their mark making skills to create a concertina storybook.
We will also be learning about computing systems and networks – IT around us. The children will be learning about how information technology (IT) is being used for good in our lives. With an initial focus on IT in the home, learners explore how IT benefits society in places such as shops, libraries, and hospitals. Whilst discussing the responsible use of technology, and how to make smart choices when using it.
