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!

I really enjoy reading the Alfie books by Shirley Hughes. Alfie Gets In First was read to me as a child and I have since read it with my children. I also LOVE the illustrations.

One of my favourite stories to read is Zog by Julian Donaldson. This book brings back lovely memories of reading the story to my two sons. The book also reminds us that you can achieve anything with patience, perseverance and someone who believes in your abilities.

We have enjoyed welcoming the children back this term and are pleased to observe the children engage in their science topic of animals and their habitats with enthusiasm and curiosity. Our end point is to identify 'What is a habitat?' and 'How do animals depend on their habitat?'. The children will be able to identify habitats and microhabitats, will explore food chains and identify the meaning of omnivores, herbivores and carnivores. This will lead us on nicely to our second science unit in which we are going to be thinking about plants. We will look at what plants need to grow and the structure of a plant.
 
In RE the children will be looking at the unit of ‘Salvation’ in this unit the children will be exploring the question ‘Why is Easter important to Christians’.
 
We will also enjoy getting active in P.E and will be ensuring physical literacy by bouncing, throwing and catching balls and beanbags and then completing a circuit with all of these elements in. 
 
In our Maths lessons, we aim to prioritise the revisiting of key learning before we move into our fractions unit of work. 
 
Phonics and spelling continue to be taught daily alongside our English lessons, where will be learning to write to inform. Pupils will be able to identify audience and purpose of a letter as well as the key features and this will inform how we plan to write our own letter to a friend we have missed throughout lockdown. then we will complete information texts based on our science work. We are so excited to have all of the children back in class again and are thoroughly looking forward to exploring these topics together. If you have any questions, please get in contact
