Tales with a Twist!

Tales with a Twist! 

This half term, we will be looking at traditional tales and how we can change the story to give them a tale with a twist! We will be creating our own villains and writing stories about what happens to them. As geographers we will be learning about how to read and use maps, as well as creating our own. We will be growing bean plants in science and observing what plants need to grow and be healthy. 


We will also use our skills as scientists and geographers on our trip to Alice Holt forest to learn how to read maps and more about the four seasons. 


Please take a look at our half termly overview below to find out more about what we will be learning.

Week 4: 27/01/2023

This week we started a new experiment in science to see which variable would grow the cress the best. We will keep you updated with how the cress grows! In hedgehogs we have been learning about the Torah and why it is important to Jews. We even made our own Torahs. In Squirrels we went to our new music room to play on the glockenspiels. We improved our own melodies and played a melody to a song that we learnt. Then we had a go on our new electric grand piano! 

Week 3 - week beginning 16.01.23


This week has been another exciting week in Year 2. We have been learning how to add two-digit numbers in maths and have started looking at our new text 'The True Story of the Three Little Pigs' in English. We've also been observing our bean plants grow in science and have been making maps of our classrooms in geography. 

Week 2: 09/01/2023

We had lots of fun in our science lessons this week as we planted our beans. We had to choose what we wanted to put our seeds in and what to add such as water and soil in order for our plants to grow and stay healthy. 

Week 1: 04/01/2023

It has been so lovely welcoming Year 2 back to school and we can't believe how much they have grown! We started the week with an interesting bag appearing in our classroom. It was filled with clues for who it might belong too. We found out that it was the Big Bad Wolf so we had to create wanted posters to try and find him. We also started our new book 'Inside the Villains' and came up with ideas for our own villains for our writing next week. 

Together, we grow our love for learning.
