Year 2 Learning Autumn Term 1


Year 2 shared loads with the Digital Leaders!


In project, they have started the year learning about themselves. Year 2 have been focussing hard on spellings and new vocabulary, traditional tales, practising their times tables on TT Rockstars, and using two digit numbers.


Computers have been shared as a highlight this term, including learning all about the Paint programme to draw images. As well as this, the excitement of meeting the new staff they have been working with as they settle into the new year was also a key moment. Some pupils also learn that there are more than just traditional tales out there to read, so are now looking forward to exploring these.


The children shared they are excited to begin planning their work for the whole school sensory gardens next half term.


Well done on all your hard learning Year 2, and well done to the Digital Leader team on their first upload to the school website.
