Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 is an exciting year for the children at Mitton Manor Primary School, the children learn to become more independent as they reach the final stage of Key Stage One. As your child continues through this year, there will be a continued focus on phonics and developing their skills further in writing and maths – exploring new concepts, developing their writing stamina and ensuring they have opportunities to work with more independence in preparation for the transition to Year 3. The Year 2 team work hard with all colleagues to ensure children enjoy a happy and progressive year, which is full of fun, laughter and responsibility.

Our theme this term is, Turrets and Tales. We will be exploring the magic of fairy tales and castles!
In English lessons, we will be focusing on the four purposes for writing: writing to inform, writing to persuade, writing to entertain and writing to discuss. This will include writing a castle advert, a fairy tale, a dragon poem and many more texts! In Maths lessons, we will be learning about place value and addition and subtraction within 100. In Science, we will be learning about materials and their uses. History lessons will be focused on learning about royal residences and different monarchs. In Geography, we will be exploring the school grounds using simple fieldwork. During PE, we will be developing our ball and gymnastic skills. In Music, we will be composing music to reflect an animal's character and performing as part of an ensemble during the Harvest Festival and Christmas performance. In Computing sessions, the children will be taught how to keep safe online. During Art, the children will use clay to make a castle. In Design and Technology, we will use tools and construction techniques to make a structure. As part of PPA cover, Mr Swayle will be teaching shape, Religious Education and CPSHE.
