Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page
Miss Burdett is the class teacher.
Mrs Robertson is the Learning Support Assistants in the class.

This page will keep you well informed of what Year 2 are learning each term as well as important pieces of information.

  What have we been learning?


Our topic this term is 'All about Vehicles' and we started our learning off by reading the Mrs Armitage collection by Quentin Blake. In these stories, Mrs Armitage is a peculiar lady who enjoys travelling in various ways. During her adventures, she likes to modify her vehicles to cater to her specific needs however it would always end in disaster. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing these stories with each other.

 Through Literacy the children were able to be inspired by Mrs Armitage and wrote their own adventure involving peculiar upgrades to the vehicles. Our next writing focus was reports, so the children decided to invent their own vehicle to write about.

 In Art, we looked at a variety of vehicles and used our observational skills to draw them. We found at first that our drawings did not match our observations so we decided to give feedback on our drawings. We used the feedback to improve our drawings. After five drafts, the children were finally pleased with their achievements as their art reflected the vehicle.

 During Topic, we asked ourselves the question 'Where do cars come from?' so we decided to dip into history and learn about who created the first car. We learned all about Henry Ford and how he created and mass produced the Model T. Feeling inspired, we re-created our own car manufacturing assembly line using construction kits.

 Next half term, we will be investigating various materials through science to determine which material is best to build our own car in Design and Technology.
