Year 2 Class Teacher

Welcome to Year 2!

Term 2 – Lights Camel Action!

This term we will be working towards an awesome nativity performance, which will be brought to you in the form of ‘Lights Camel Action’. This is a fun filled play which looks back on the traditional nativity story while inviting the characters to perform dances and be judged! It is sure to offer us lots of learning experiences as well as lots of fun and entertainment.
The play is set in Bethlehem, which offers us the perfect opportunity to explore one of our key skills about hot countries. We will also be looking at animals that live in hot countries, including camels! This will enable us to explore animal habitats more closely too!
We will be getting our writing on to write invitations to people to ask them to come and watch our nativity! As well as writing an information text and story about camels!
Within our maths learning we will be beginning to add and subtract with the goal of adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers to/from 2 digit numbers.
There are lots of exciting things to get ready for this term so we are going to be very busy!
Thank you for your continued support and please ask if you have any questions.
Mrs Dinham

Our Topic this term will be

The Big Smoke!

We will be learning about London both now and at the time of the Great Fire of London. We will write stories about visiting different parts of London, write information about London and learn all about why the Great fire of London is a significant part of history.

Within our maths we will be looking at place value, telling the time and money.

In week 2, we will be selling items in our Pea Pod sale, So look out for posters advertising this!

I hope your child has a wonderful first term in Year 2 and if there is anything you would like to chat to me about then feel free to come and ask me.

Many Thanks, Mrs Dinham
