Little Lambs - Year 2

Mrs Lowe

Teacher

I have so many favourite books and I read at least one new book a week! I love going to the library and discovering a new world each time I start a story. My absolute favourites are the Harry Potter books and I re-read them every year. I have such fond memories of each book coming out and getting excited to see what was going to happen next. I loved the idea of receiving a letter when you turned 11 to find out you had magical powers! My favourite book in the series is Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban because I love the part where Harry and Hermione travel back in time to save Sirius. I wouldn't be able to pick a favourite character because there are so many I love but my favourite professor is Professor McGonagall!

There is something so special about getting lost in the pages of a good book. I love reading. My favourite thing to do is to curl up under a blanket with a good book and a hot chocolate. When I was young, I used to love reading 'The Secret Seven' and 'The Famous Five' books by Enid Blyton. Now I'm older I still enjoy reading mystery novels. My favourite grown up book is 'The Night Circus' by Erin Morgenstern.

Welcome back! We are excited to begin our first half-term with our ‘All About Me’ topic.

In science, we will be learning to identify and name body parts and the five senses, identify things that are alive, dead, never alive and explore the life stages of a human. We will also explore what humans need to survive, different food types and will be able to discuss the importance of exercise.

In Art we will be studying self-portraits of artists and identifying their key features. We will be learning to use different lines and shapes to create texture and effect and will be using colour effectively to create our own self-portraits for display in our classrooms.

Phonics and spelling will be taught daily alongside our English lessons. This half term we will be writing for a purpose to inform our new class teachers about ourselves, our families, hobbies, likes and dislikes. 

In maths, we will be recapping prior learning before learning how to represent number, identify tens and ones, use place value charts and compare and order numbers. We will them move onto counting in 2s, 5s, and 10s and

In P.E, we will be learning to create a sequence with jumps, balances, shapes and rolls.

In R.E. we will be learning to understand what it is like to belong to a community.

In PSHCE, we will be exploring the topic ‘Our Communities’ and how to respect uniqueness.
