Year 2 2021 - 2022

Mrs Bolley

Teacher

Welcome to Year 2

With

Mrs Bolley, Mr Howarth and Mrs Barber

 

Class Dojo is a great way for me to keep in touch with you all. It's always great to see what you've been up to!

The Spring term's context for learning within our vision is ‘The Sands of Time’.

Our big question this term is: Has everyone had equal opportunities through time?

This will be explored through the Story Box approach, which children first encountered in Early Years, which is drama-rich and engages leaners through provocations, requiring deep thinking, with a focus on raising the profile of oracy. 

 Our World Knowledge, Science and English will all follow the books; Rosie Revere Engineer and Major Glad Major Dizzy
