Year 2 - Amethyst Class

Welcome to Amethyst Class!


Hello and welcome to our Year 2 class page.


Hello and welcome to our Year 2 class page.

A warm welcome back after the Christmas Holidays! Once again we have a very busy term ahead of us with lots of fun learning and exciting experiences prepared for the children. These include, swimming, Brazilian Drumming, Music Workshops, World Book Day and so much more. Please keep an eye on our class page to catch up with our super learning. 


This half-term our class books will be:






This term in English, the children have created their own Magic Box poem, animal based information text and even a character description full of exciting vocabulary!



In Maths the children have been making super progress with their addition and subtraction skills and have utilised this to compare number sentences, complete column method calculations and solve missing number problems. 



In Science we have been investigating and monitoring a range of habitats to explore how they meet the needs of the animals who inhabit the area and how this may differ throughout the changing seasons. 


This term in Design and Technology the children have designed, built, tested and evaluated their own Ferris Wheel models including a functioning axel and and mechanism. 



The pupils have also been developing a repertoire of festive songs both old and new, in preparation of our Christmas Carol Service on the last day of term!
