Welcome to Year 2!

Our topic this term is “Hi Ho Hi Ho it’s off to work we go!” We will be learning all about the classic Disney story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. We will have our own Cottage and diamond mine roleplay in class and will be visiting a real mine where we will learn about the history of coal mining and its importance in Wales. We will also be visiting Cyfarthfa Castle for a ‘Once upon a time’ workshop.

In Language, Literacy and Communication, we will be learning to retell the story of Snow White in the style of Pie Corbett using actions, drama and story maps. We will also be learning about the features of stories and creating our own fairytales by innovating the original story. We will be learning how to make our writing more interesting using adjectives to describe good and evil characters from the story and how to construct simple sentences linked to the story.

In Maths, we will be learning about place value, comparing and ordering numbers and addition and subtraction. We will be learning to recall our number bonds to 10, 20 and beyond and how to find the difference between numbers. We will be looking at identifying odd and even numbers and simple multiplication. We will also be completing daily CLIC sessions where we will be working on our counting, learn it’s and calculations.

As part of our topic, we will be creating our own Artwork using charcoal and also using mirrors to create self portraits. We will be looking at the still life lantern artwork of Dennis Wilkinson and creating our own versions of this.
