Welcome to Blackberry

Class

Miss Selby     Mrs Modak

 

In Year 2 we have a hard-working team of dedicated teachers who ensure that all children receive a broad, balanced and creative curriculum.

In doing so we believe all children should develop an enjoyment of learning, whilst striving to achieve high outcomes and standards.

 

 

Autumn Term:

This term we will be focusing on our cross curricular topic – Pirates where children will explore the life of a pirate.

 

Topic: This term we will be learning all about pirates. This will be a cross-curricular topic which will combine learning in Literacy, Geography, History, Art and Design Technology.

 

Literacy: Our writing will come from The Power of Reading scheme. Beegu, Lila and the secret of rain and Traction Man are the books we will be focusing on this term.

 

Numeracy: We will be looking at Properties of shape, number and place value, addition and subtraction, measure, position and direction.

 

Science: Our topic for this term is Materials.

 

P.E: Dance, games and gymnastics.

 

We hope you enjoy the lovely pictures and the information that we will be sharing with you over the course of the year.

 

If you have any questions regarding anything you see on our class page, please let Mrs Modak or I know – we are around before and after school or you can catch us in the playground and we are always happy to help.

 

During the Autumn Term our topic is Pirates. We will be finding out about the life of famous pirates. We will also be writing first person diaries about their experiences.

 

Blackberry Class PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays where your child will be required to have a full school PE kit to participate. School PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms/leggings and plimsolls (inside) and trainers (outside).

 

Homework will continue to be given out each Monday and it is expected to be returned to school along with their spelling book on Friday.

 

Children should be reading at home every day. They should read independently or to someone at home. Please sign their Reading Record book when they have read their books and ensure they are brought to school every day.
