Welcome to Year 2 - here is some information about our learning in Year 2.

Hello everyone. I hope that you have had a lovely summer holidays. There will be some slight changes to drop offs and collections in September. I have included information relevant to year 2 below.

Mr Smith will be waiting for the children by the fence between the KS1 and KS2 yard in the KS1 yard.

 

Lunchtime arrangements- 

 

Lunch time 12 - 1pm

Y2 will eat their lunch at 12:30pm in the dining hall.

Children will be released from the Y2 classroom  to parents who should wait by the fence between the KS1 and KS2 yard where they were dropped off in the morning.

 

PE will be on a Monday afternoon and on a Friday afternoon. The children should come to school in their PE kit. Please send the children in jogging bottoms and a jacket/jumper when it is cold.

 

If you have any concerns about your child please contact the class teacher in the first instance. Mr Smith can be contacted via email (dsmith@nortonfree.sheffield.sch.uk) or through the school telephone number.

 

Homework will be uploaded at the bottom of this page on a Friday. If you would like to share your child’s completed homework then please email it to Mr Smith (dsmith@nortonfree.sheffield.sch.uk).

Year 2 topics

 

The Year 2 team includes Mr Smith (Class Teacher), Miss Rasdale (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Hill (Teaching Assistant).

Mrs Lawton will be teaching the class on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Mrs Walker will also be supporting on a Friday morning and will teach the Friday PE lesson.

Throughout Year 2 the children work on cross curricular topics which are changed each half term. Our topics for this year are:


London's Burning
We will learn about the Great Fire of London; what caused it and why it lasted for so long. We'll be asking and answering questions about this famous event. 

 

Nurturing nurses

We will be learning about Mary Seacole and Florence Nightingale and the changes these two important women made to health and hygiene. We will be asking and answering questions about how they changed the role of nurses in society.

 

Let's Go to China

 

The children will be learning about all about the culture and traditions of another country and beginning to make comparisons to our home of Norton.

 

Around the world

 

We will look at maps of the local area and begin to identify human and physical features of the United Kingdom. The children will also use maps to identify continents and oceans around the world. They will also name and locate the countries and capital cities that make up Britain. 

 

 

Castles and Knights
During this topic, we'll learn about the different parts of a castle and why they were built. We will enjoy investigating how knights lived and their role in society.

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside!
We will be comparing seaside holidays in the past with holidays today. Our work will focus on travel, clothing and leisure activities. We will have a focus that covers both history and geography, as we look at different seaside resorts 
in the UK.
