Year 2's Diary

A warm welcome to Year 2. Our team this year includes Mrs Hancox, Mrs Hurst, Mr Steel, Mrs Cowlishaw and Mrs Parkin. We have lots of fun whilst learning in Year 2! Keep checking our blog for more updates.

How the Great Fire Changed London!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Wednesday, December 18, 2019

What a great term we have had in Year two! The children have worked really hard and have improved lots since September.


After Christmas our focus will be The Great Fire of London. We will read books about the fire and children that were alive when it happened. We will use these tales to write our own stories from ours and others points of view. We will use maps to look at London and see how it has changed since the fire. There are many famous monuments in London and we will investigate these and why they were built. We will look at pictures from the time of the fire and try to re-create our own by blending colours.


In maths we will continue to work with money and then we will look at the properties of shape. At the same time we will continue to practise our multiplication, division, addition and subtraction questions.


Please keep reading as much as you can at home and we can't wait to to share our new phonics books with the children after Christmas.


Our PE days will continue to be Wednesdays and Fridays, so please make sure your child's kit is with them throughout the week.


Have a lovely holiday and we look forward to seeing you in January

Welcome to Year 2!

Ecclesfield Teachers - Saturday, August 17, 2019

Welcome back to a new year at Ecclesfield!  We hope you have had a great summer and are ready to start Y2.


Throughout the year our themes will be travel and famous people. In our first topic we will look at the transport we used to have in Sheffield and how this has changed in recent years. Following on from this we will ask 'What makes our world amazing?' During this topic we will be learning all about famous explorers, countries they have visited and why they are remembered today. We will also look at maps of the world to locate countries, continents and the surrounding seas. 


During our English learning, we will be reading a class book called 'The Great Explorer'. Can you think who the story may be based on and where the main character will  travel? 


In Maths, we will start with focusing on the basics of counting and knowledge of number. We will be moving onto addition and subtraction, learning new methods which make these calculations quick and easy. At home, please continue to learn your times tables (2,5, and 10s).


Homework: As last year, we will be setting homework at the beginning of the term. This will include reading (remember at least 4 times a week please!), spellings, maths and topic. If you are unsure of anything, please ask your class teacher. 


Please ensure you have your PE kits in school every day. We will be going outside this half term so make sure you have suitable clothing. 


PE days: Wednesday and Friday

Reading Mornings: Monday and Friday


We look forward to seeing you there! 


Many thanks

Y2 team
