Year 2 - 2016 - 2017
Welcome to Year 2
Year 2 have had a fantastic start to the new school year and I am really pleased with their learning so far. Thank you to all the parents who attended the curriculum evening it was great to meet you all and I hope you found it useful. If you were unable to make it the currculum letter and presentation is attached below.
Our first topic is ‘Explorers from around the world and beyond!" where we will learn about many historical and modern explorers that have made a significant impact around the world. We have already researched Christopher Columbus, Neil Armsrong, Tim Peake, Amelia Earheart and Bessi Coleman. We will also link this to our Geography lessons and learn how to locate the 7 continents.
This topic will be followed by Ware through the ages, India, Wriggle and Crawl and lastly Fire. We have lots of exciting things ahead!
If you have any questions or concerns then please feel free to come and speak to me after school or make an appointment through the homework diaries. I will also send messages home via Marvellous Me. We will also have a parents consultation before half term.
I am delighted to teach year 2 and know we have a brilliant year ahead.
Year 2 "I wonder..."
"Mary felt like she had butterflies in her tummy when the angel Gabriel appeared. She might have heard the angels wings flapping and music or singing. Angels sing because they are messengers from God. We spread God's message when we sing in church. Gabriel would have been surrounded by light to show God's love."
" Angel Gabriel is saying 'you are in God's hands'. He is saying that so Mary is not afraid because she knows she is protected by Gods hands love. "
The Angel is surrounded by God's love . It is very bright. The light goes over Mary because she trusts God and he loves her. It's the Holy Spirit so she has Gods baby. The baby Jesus."
" I have drawn a heart because it reminds me that God loves everyone and should love each other.Mary is saying "I'm afraid but I trust God so I will say yes." That means we should trust God even when we are scared."
"I have drawn the Angel wrapped in God's love. He would have been full of light. Mary said "I'm afraid but I will have God's baby so I also feel blessed."
"The Angel said ' Do not be afraid. You will have God's baby . He will be named Jesus and he will be a great King." But he won't wear a crown he will be our king and saviour. He will lead us like a king of a country"
Godly Play Comments
" The desert is surrounded by yellow. Like light. Is it showing God's love or could it be the light from the angel's halos"
"Abraham didn't know where to go. Sometimes we don't know where to go or what to do but we have to trust in God to show us."
" God made us. He chose us so we have God inside all of us."
"If we look at a picture of our face or a mirror it is like looking at God because he is inside us all."
"You don't always have to do lots of big things to show God you are thankful for all the gifts he gave us. You could just smile at someone people that would make them happy."
