ST PAUL'S YEAR 2Welcome to year 2


REFRESHED AND READY TOLearn about more exciting topics

We have had a fantastic first half term in year 2 and are looking forward to continuing our learning in the run up to Christmas. We have been very busy so far and have loved learning across the curriculum.
Our Maths focus has been place value and addition and subtraction. We have been working hard to increase our fluency of addition and subtraction facts.
In English, we have been working in Read Write Inc groups so that we can improve our knowledge of Phonics. We have also been doing lots of reading so we can all become fluent readers.
In History, we have been finding out what houses were like in different historical periods, from the Celts right up to the present day. We then used this knowledge to design our perfect house.
In Science, we have looked at materials and considered the best material for different purposes. This included an investigation to find out the best material to use to make an umbrella.
In RE, we have read the Creation story from the Bible and considered what it tells us about how we should treat the world that we live in.
In Art, we looked at art work of houses by Kandinsky and Van Gogh before using Kandinsky’s art techniques to create our own piece of art using oil pastels.
In DT, we have been exploring how to join and combine shapes in order to design and make a 3-dimensional house.
In PE, we have been exploring movement and balancing using Real PE and Real Gym.
In Music, we have been keeping a beat and singing along to Charanga.
In PSHE, we have been thinking and talking about what ‘Being Me in my World’ means for each of us.

YEAR 2Autumn term

In the second half of the Autumn Term, we will be learning all about the UK in our Geography focused topic ‘What if you could choose a capital city for the UK?’. We will be finding out ‘Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?’ in RE before moving onto ‘Why does Christmas matter to Christians?’. Our Science topic will be based on Living Things and their Habitats.

YEAR 2Topic Overviews

WELLBEINGChildren's Mental Health Week

Now more than ever we need to be looking after our mental health! 1st -7th February was Children's Mental Health Week. We got involved to mark the occasion and to raise money for the charity Place2Be who focus on improving children's mental health.

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Check out how we have expressed ourselves this week!
