Year 2 2018-2019
Welcome to Year 2!
Our topic for Term 1 is 'Senses and Spices'.
We will be exploring the delicious Asian foods, the rich and colourful fashions, looking at the Indian folk tale "The Tiger Child' and learning about the Sikh religion.
We will also be building on our geographical skills using maps, globes and atlases to locate India and countries within the continent of Asia and comparing them to the UK.

In Class 9 we have been learning to recognise, name and describe 2d shapes. We have been focusing on circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, pentagons, hexagons and octagons. We recapped the correct mathematical language to describe the shape properties such as sides (curved and straight) and corners. Here are some pictures of us using Venn diagrams to sort 2d shapes by their properties.
In Class 11 we tasted some different Indian foods and compared them to the foods we eat every day. We all enjoyed the poppadoms!
In class 10 we talked about how 'Incy' one of our learning characters supports us with our learning. He reminds us to be independent and resilient! We enjoyed drawing pictures of Incy.
It was lovely to see so many of you at our recent 'Meet the Teacher' event. If you were unable to make the meeting, please find the information discussed below.
