Message from Mr Savage:
Autumn term 1
What an exciting term we have ahead of us! I am new to Banks Road this year and I am really looking forward to working with all the children and parents at this small school with a big mission!
In English this half term we are reading Roald Dahl's The Magic Finger, writing letters to persuade, debating and acting out the story, writing character descriptions, and lots more! We are beginning to work our way through the Year 2 spelling rules outlined in the National Curriculum to ensure that we are the best spellers in the school!
Our class reader is The Emperor's New Clothes. We will be reading this together and later on this term we will be linking this to our Dance work in PE, re-enacting out the story through expressive dance.
In Maths we are ensuring that our knowledge of place value and number is really secure, solving problems and reasoning activities as well as making sure that we are really fluent in those key Maths skills.
Our Science topic is Mini Worlds where we will be looking at the habitats of local animals and creatures - we will even be doing some field work (whether the weather looks appealing or not!). The Autumnal weather is a great starting off point for us to be examining seasonal changes.
Geography work will see us going on a journey around the world (not literally!), learning the names and features of some of the countries, seas and oceans as we go. We will be working on our Computing curriculum with Mrs Shannon with the topic 'We are astronauts', studying people's beliefs in RE, designing and making puppets in DT, and much, much more...
I am very excited to be working with the children of Banks Road.
If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch,
Mr. Savage and the Year 2 team
