Topic Letter: Y2 Topic Letter Blow Your Nose Big Bad Wolf.docx
This half term, Year 2 have been learning about the work of John Ross a famous artist from New York who drew pictures of cities. His work inspired us to create our own 3D city using card and paper. We used his drawings as a guide to create our own buildings and bridges.
Year 2 had a fantastic day learning about materials and structures. We read the story of the Billy Goats Gruff as part of our Twisted Tales topic and then decided that we would build our own toy bridge in class. We investigated which material would be best to build the bridge with. We learnt so much about how to keep structures stable and rigid using playdough and pasta. We designed and built bridges using card. We added extra layers, arches and triangles to make our bridge structures more stable and rigid.
Please note that the work being put on the class webpages for the class bubbles meets the DFE guidance on ‘providing work for pupils who are at home which matches what they would do if they were in school’. I totally understand that it may not be possible for every parent/carer to deliver this amount of home learning. It is not statutory, so whatever you manage to do is fine, we just wanted to provide the full range as directed.
Advice would be to balance the subject areas over the week, so your child keeps up with some maths, spelling, writing, reading, topic etc. Email the school with any specific questions, and the teacher will respond to you. Teachers can help when they make their weekly check in telephone call too.

Year 2 have been learning about habitats. The habitats around us on the school grounds are mostly micro-habitats. We also have trees, hedges and grass. We had so much fun observing and identifying different minibeasts in their micro-habitats.
We had a busy French afternoon learning about common French phrases. We practised different ways of saying hello including "Bonjour", "Bonsoir" and "Salut". In pairs, we practised asking "Comment t'appelles tu?" and replying with "Je m'appelle ....." to share our name. We asked 'How are you?' and replied with 'Very well thank you' using the French phrases "Comment ca va?" and "Ca va bien merci"
We learnt a song to help us remember these phrases.
Year 2 have learning about the work of Pablo Picasso. We have used his work as inspiration to create our own style pictures using pencils and oil pastels and the computer. Picasso used bold colours in his work to show lots of emotions. We used ICT to colour block our own Picasso picture.
