Yr 2 Mrs Sandercock
Welcome to Year 2. I’m Mrs Sandercock, the class teacher. Within our class, we have the support of Mrs Norman and Mrs Hooper, who help the children will all aspects of their learning.
Year 2 have PE on a Thursday morning and outdoor learning on a Friday afternoon. Our library slot is on a Monday, where the children can choose a book to bring home and share with you. We also use this time to change and quiz on our AR books. We encourage children to quiz and change their AR books at regular intervals throughout the week, as our aim is for the children to quiz once a week.
Our topic for this half term is ‘Planet Dinosaur.’ We will be finding out when dinosaurs roamed the land and what types of dinosaurs lived. As a class, in science, we will research about dinosaurs’ habitats and how they were classed as herbivores and carnivores. We will explore fossils and how they were made, and we will use our art skills to create and draw our own fossils. We will also compare how things are classified as living, dead or alive.
In literacy, we will read Dear Dinosaur and Stone Girl Bone Girl and write our own stories and letters based on these books. We will use our history skills to research facts to support our writing. In computing, we will use the iPads to go on a Google Expedition to explore a dinosaur museum. We will use our experiences to support ideas for our writing.
In geography, we will explore the seven continents of the world and the oceans that surround them. We will use maps and atlases to locate these. In RE, we will explore the question: ‘Who do Christian’s say made the world?’
