Year 2 – Mr Austin
Hello and Welcome to Baker Street's class page.
In English this half term, we will be writing different types of texts- we will be writing stories and diary entries.
In Maths, we will be focusing on number. We will be learning about place value and how to use this to add and subtract 2 digit numbers. We will be use practical resources to help us do this.
In Science, we will be learning about Animals, including humans. The children have generated a list of things that they want to find out including, what animals need to survive and why some animals live much longer than others.
Spelling- Common Exception words.
By the end of Year 2 it is excepted that all children should be able to read and spell the following words. We will do lots of practice on these words in class as well.
Times Table Rockstars
It is really important for the children to know their times tables. Here at Cherry Tree Academy we have found a fun way to learn our times table. Times Table Rockstars! Children can have their own rockstar name, they can listen to rock music as they learn their tables, even play Glastonbury tournaments! All the children have been given usernames and passwords- if your unsure please ask the class teacher. Click the link below to start rocking out!!
Homework Project – Our Library - to be handed in by Tuesday 1st November.
This term has begun with huge excitement in school as we have begun the renovation of our library. So far we have constructed an almost life size Cherry Tree in the atrium, added a raft of brand new books and rebanded all of the existing ones to allow the children more choice together with a faster progression through the levels of books. We are awaiting the delivery of some new seating too.
To enhance this area further we would like the children to complete their project this half term specifically to enhance this area further, with work from them based around their favourite books. This could include a favourite character, setting, plot or indeed the whole story.
There are some ideas below but please feel free to let their imagination run wild and be as creative as you like.
Book box – this is a story displayed within an open shoe box
Models – any kind
Mini books where they have retold their favourite story
Any original stories that they have written and illustrated
