Welcome toShadsworth Infant SchoolLearning, Sharing and Caring

Year 2

Welcome to 2H & 2GH

 

During our Spring 2 half term we will introduce the children to the Amazing Amazon topic. As part of this Geography focus, children will recap knowledge about the location of continents and oceans and delve into the Amazon Rainforest. We will discover the different layers and the animals that make their home there. We will look at different maps, human and physical features and explore the topic of deforestation.

 

 

 

In English we will continue to develop skills such as using correct tenses and using correct punctuation and challenge ourselves to use new skills like setting the scene with a clear opening and writing in the first person through the use of our core text of ‘Major Glad, Major Dizzy.’

 

 

 

 

 

 

During Maths our new topic is measurement. The children will use equipment to find length, height and mass. 

 

 

Our PE days this half-term remain as Monday and Friday – every child will be required to have their PE kits in school in a named bag. These will be kept in school until the end of the half term when they will be sent home for washing. Each child will participate in PE on Monday and 2GH will take part in a coach-led session on Friday. Ideas for comfortable and weather appropriate sports clothes include; jogging bottoms/shorts, t-shirt/jumper, trainers and pumps.
