Year 2

Welcome to Year 2

Class teachers: Miss Johnson (Coral Class) and Mrs Green (Orange Class)



This half term we will be studying the story of the Minpins in guided reading. 

We will also be reading The Hodgeheg as a class text.

Autumn Term Texts


During English lessons this term, the children in year 2 have written a recount about their very own dragon hunt on the school playground. Take a look at our video to see the dragon footage that inspired our writing!

During this term, we have also designed our very own dragons, thinking about their colour, size and any special features that they may have. Using our designs and labels, we then wrote character descriptions and have each created a simile poem about our dragon. 

While studying habitats, Year 2 have written some very informative non-chronological reports about the woodland hedgehog, which include information about a hedgehog's diet, habitat and other interesting facts.

During science this term, Year 2 will be studying a range of habitats, including: the woodland, desert, Arctic and rainforest. During our science unit, we will be using a range of scientific skills, including the skills of research to find out about the different plants and animals which live in a particular habitat and skills of identifying and classifying to organise items into groups: living, dead or never alive.
