Emerald Class 2020 - 2021

Welcome to Emerald Class! 

Our teacher is Mrs Welch and Miss Houghton is our teaching assistant. 



Spring 2021

In the lead up to Easter our History topic is British Kings and Queens.
We will be learning about significant monarchs and studying a castle.

In science we will be investigating insects and creating our own insects
during Science Week.  Our science topic is living things and their habitats
and will involve, recognising whether things are alive, dead or have never lived. Identifying different plants and animals and recognising that they are suited to their different habitats, including micro-habitats. Recognising how different habitats provide for the basic needs of animals and plants. Understanding that animals get their food from other animals and/or from plants.

 

Summer 2021

 In History we will be finding out about Travel and Transport.
We will be looking at how a steam train works.

After half term our Topic will be Sensational Safari.
We will be investigating Kenya in detail and finding out about their
National Parks and Game Reserves.

In science we will be using gardens and allotments to explore and identify
what plants need to thrive. Explaining how plants and animals get what
they need from their environment. Identifying living things in a range of habitats. Constructing food chains and describing stages in plant development.

Emerald 'Tasty Food' Harvest Song


We are looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. We hope that your child enjoys the new challenges and experiences that Year 2 has to offer!

Year 2 is an important year for learning. The children are expected to become more independent readers, writers and mathematicians as the year advances.
 The Year 2 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Year 1 and they will continue to learn through exciting topics so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners. 

This term our stimulating topic is Magical Mapping.
We will be finding out about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We will be drawing simple maps, keys and learning how to use a compass. 

In Science this term, we will be looking at Materials. We will be:

*Identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses.

*Finding out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.


We are learning to work scientifically by:

-      Asking simple questions

-      Suggesting methods of investigation

-      Examining objects carefully

-      Setting up simple tests

-      Drawing and labelling diagrams

-      Answering questions using data
