Year 2 - Mrs Birrell



Welcome to Mrs Birrell's Year 2 Class



In Year Two, children are able to progress in their independence and their level of responsibility is increased and they are expected to be excellent role models for other children across the school. Our goal is to inspire the children to continue to grow in their love of learning, through building on key skills such as their resilience, determination, curiosity, ambition and problem solving.




Our Spring topics in Year 2 are Starry Night

followed by Into The Secret Garden


Through these topics we will be reading Katie and The Starry Night, Stick Man, Owl Babies and Superworm.


In English we will be adding suffixes and prefixes to words, learning about contractions and possessive apostrophes.


We will continue to practice our handwriting and will still be focusing on spelling most common words correctly.


In Maths we will add and subtract numbers to 100 and beyond. We will multiply and divide using the 2, 5 and 10 times’ tables. Fractions and measuring weight and length will also be explored.


In Science we will be observing trees, plants, flowers seeds and bulbs.


This term we will participate in Music and RE lessons and our PE will include dance.
