Robins - Year 2

Welcome to Robins Class Page! 

This page is the place where you will find information about Year 2 learning, events and notices. It is updated regularly to keep you as informed as possible.

 

We make good choices about our behaviour in Robins Class. This document shows how children are encouraged to engage in positive behaviours and supported when they find it challenging to make good choices.

Have a look at the document below for information regarding the Year 2 phonics screening.

I notice that lots of Robins Class are using Time Tables Rock Stars and that is great! 

If you need more information about this, take a look at the handbook below which has been adapted from the TTRS Website. If you need any more information, please let me know. 

 

We worked in groups to compose animal themed music. We practised, performed and evaluated our compositions.

We have been enjoying story time in the spiritual garden this half term. We like hearing the crunch of the gravel under our feet and looking at the pebbles on our journey to the story area.

We made a commitment in RE. We did this every day for a whole week and then reflected on how it made us feel and if it helped us in any way.

We have started our carnival float project. This week, we made cubes and cuboids to display our chosen animals.

We made a class composition of the carnival of animals this afternoon. We were very creative with our sounds and kept to the beat.

We started to use our editing zones in English this week. We’ve learned how to proof read our writing and used the zones to make our instruction texts even better!

Harvest - we used tissue paper collage to make autumn leaf stained glass windows. We hung them from our autumn tree and thought about the gifts God provides at harvest time.

We worked in pairs to discuss and order animal life cycles. We thought about the changes that happen in each stage of the cycle.

We spent time colour mixing this week and made a wide range of colours. We used these colours to print a page border using a repeating pattern.

We explored microhabitats in our school grounds this afternoon. We identified and sorted the living things we found in them.

We used our line drawing and shading skills to draw self portraits in art this week. We found looking at ourselves closely in a mirror very entertaining! I wonder if you can guess who each portrait belongs to?

We have been playing an online game linked to our science unit. They children have really enjoyed this so if they would like to play it at home, the link is here.

Animals and habitats

We are having a fantastic first week back in Year 2. We wrote animal list poems today and enjoyed sharing our poems with the class. Our poems were so descriptive, the class could guess the animals we had written about!

Our first topic this year is.....

A Carnival of Animals!

Take a look at the documents below to see the planned coverage for this topic. 

Meet the teacher - Miss Keogh!
