Year 2 Term 1

Below is Topic web which details the learning which will take place during the Autumn term. 
In Year 2, we have been exploring our new Twinkl phonics scheme. We have enjoyed exploring the alternative sounds and spelling rules taking part in a variety of activities to develop our understanding of these new sounds. Some of our learning includes words beginning gn and kn, adding er, ed or est to words ending y and words beginning wr. 
Music Lessons
This term, Year 2 have been showing our school value of joyfulness today by singing a special Hello song that they have learnt in their music lessons. They are ready to now perform in the school's Christmas choir and spread cheer to the wider community. 
Philosophy for Children homework
As part of their half term homework, Year 2 answered a P4C question. The children were given a variety of poor choices and had to organise them from worst to least worst, using their Naughty-o-meter. They could choose to present this in a variety of ways and presented them to the class, discussing how they made their choices. 
Trip to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre
Year 2 didn't let the rain spoil their fun on 5th October when they went to see Benji Davies at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. The children caught the train from Penkridge to Wolverhampton and walked really sensibly the whole time. They loved hearing about 'The Storm Whale' and how it was written and will enjoy their own copies that they were given. 
Pyjama Day
On Tuesday 14th November, to celebrate our movie night at school, children wore their pyjamas to school. Although we were very comfortable all day, we still tried our best with our learning and at the end of the day, chose to watch either The Grinch or Toy Story, and enjoyed popcorn from the school's PTFA.
