Robins Class (Year 2) is taught by Miss Marks and Miss Cole, with support from Mrs Norton.
Spring 1 Overview
This half term Robins Class is learning about stories by the same author. We will be exploring the stories of Katie Morag by Mairi Hedderwick. During this topic we will be researching the Isle of Struay (based on the Isle of Coll) and how it compares with our local area. The children will be exploring the physical and human features of places and choosing some of these to create their own 3D island home. The children will also have the opportunity to design and create their own tartan. During our PE lessons, the class will participate in Scottish dance routines and create their own version of a dance. In science, we are building on our previous knowledge of materials to investigate how objects can change their shape, as well as the importance of recycling. In literacy we will be writing our own version of a Katie Morag story and using drama to bring our learning to life. This half term, we will be focusing on multiplication and division in maths, using a variety of concrete and pictorial resources. Rich opportunities are provided for children to work collaboratively and independently to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills. Finally Robin’s class will showcase their fantastic learning this half term with our class assembly.
Year 2 is a very exciting year, empowering and encouraging the children to take more responsibly and ownership in their learning.
