Year 2 2022 - 2023

STEM and RE Lead

 Welcome to Year 2!


Welcome to the final half term of Year 2 - my goodness it has flown by! After a busy Summer 1, we are ready and raring to go!

 As mentioned previously, I will be with the class Monday - Thursday. Mrs Tomlinson will teach Year 2 on a Friday and will lead a 'curriculum day' for the children where they will be taught areas of the wider curriculum. This allows me to focus on the core subjects of Maths and English, as well as our enquiry theme.  Mr Gow is also currently spending time in our class as an associate teacher from Glyndwr University, Wrexham. He already knows the children very well so please hi if you see him :-)

For this half term, the children will have PE on a Monday with me, and Wednesday with Mrs Mawrey (covering my PPA). Please make sure that as the weather becomes warmer, the children are dressed appropriately and have a hat and suncream if possible. 

As always, I am contactable at all times! You are welcome to  email me on As always, if it is anything urgent regarding day to day problems, please contact Mrs Carthy in the school office who will be happy to help.

This half term we are answering the question...



What is life like in Brazil?

As writers...


Rosie Revere dreams of becoming a great engineer. She creates wonderful gadgets and gizmos - but only when no one is watching. She's kept her inventions a secret ever since, when she was very small, her uncle Zookeeper Fred laughed at the special cheese hat she designed him to keep snakes at bay. But then great-great-great aunt Rosie, in her red-and-white spotted headscarf, appears on the scene, and helps Rosie to understand that sometimes you've got to risk failure before you can find success. We will be using this text to help us write our own invention story and an explanation text about our very own invention!


As readers...



We will be looking at a range of contempory stories and poems which are  beautifully written and illustrated. 





As geographers...

Children will learn all about Brazil. They will use their previous knowledge of physical and human features to spot these in a contrasting part of the world to Little Leigh and Chester. They will be continuing to hone in on their map skills and identify ways to present information they find. In addition to researching the different climate zones in Brazil, Year 2 will be looking closely at the weather in a contrasting location.  Children will record the weather in Little Leigh, research the weather in Brazil, and plot this information using mathematical skills on a graph.

 As scientists...


In year 2, children will develop their knowledge and understanding of plants. The national curriculum for science, states that pupils should:

  • Observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants.
  • Find out and describe how plants need water, light, and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy.

We will continue observing the seeds that the children have already started growing. They will also be monitoring their investigation on a weekly basis to see how plants grow with and without water, light and a suitable temperature. 

As mathematicians...

We clock.JPGwill be moving onto time!  The children will learn o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We will understand that there are 60 minutes in one hour.
