Hello and welcome to our home page!

Hello and welcome to our home page!

In Year 2 we have two classes. Our class teachers are Mrs Younger and Mrs Dexter. We are very lucky to have two trainee teachers also working in our classes this term and they are Mrs Ross and Mr Lock. On this page, you can find out about the learning that takes place in the classroom. Our learning links to specific topics that are designed to be taught across a two term time period. You can use this page to find out more about the topics we focus on. The page also contains a summary of what we will learn about in each topic. We hope you enjoy having a look at our page!

This term we will be looking at the topic 'Time Detectives!'

History and Geography

Children will learn about the history of Lincoln and how it has changed through time.The children will learn about why Isaac Newton is famous and his role in the scientific world. They will also understand the difference between human and physical features of the city of Lincoln. Our topic will begin with the children experiencing a very exciting and practical day trip at Lincoln Castle. They will take part in a medieval banquet, make a shield and walk along the castle wall exploring the features of a stone castle. Following this they will look at the types of castles and how they have developed over time. The children will use this information to label key features. 

The Arts

Children will be learning to join materials together to create different structures. Children will also learn to create a hinge and axle for a moving drawbridge. Children will be encouraged to reflect upon their own work and the work of others and suggest improvements. 

PE and Healthy Lifestyles

During PE lessons, children will be learning all about key dance skills. Children will develop their understanding of the importance of warming up and cooling down before and after exercise. Please ensure PE kits are in school Monday to Friday.

 

Learning for Life

Children will have the opportunity to develop their enterprise skills throughout the term focussing on risk taking, problem solving, team work and decision making. In our Life Sim lesson the children will learn different ways to interact and greet people politely and respectfully. During philosophy sessions the children will discuss relationships with others and will continue to ask questions about matters that interest them.
