Welcome to Year 2. 

We are Beech Class!

The adults in Beech Class are Mrs Cowen, Miss Hargreaves and Miss Bardon.


What are we learning about this half term?

In Maths, we are developing our key skills in multiplication and division skills. By the end of the half term, we are hoping to be able to recall our 2, 5 and 10 timestable facts with fluency!

In English, we are exploring the text The Flower. Our initial hook will be based upon the vibrant and eye-catching artwork of Georgia O'Keeffe.

In PHSE, we are developing our understanding of our local community and finding out about the different roles people have in society. We will be exploring the traits and characteristics needed for jobs within the local community and the wider world.

In Computing, we are exploring the importance of online safety and our online reputation. We will be finding out about what we can and can't share online and how this information can be used by others.

In Geography, we will be building upon our understanding of the local area (Shipley and Saltaire) and finding out about Bradford and what makes it such an incredible and interesting place to live. We will be taking a trip via the train to Bradford to explore City Park and the National Photography Museum later on in the year.

In Science, we will be finding out about humans and creating a persuasive poster to promote healthy life-style giving hints and tips to help look after our bodies,

In RE, we will be answering the question 'What good news did Jesus bring?"

At the end of this half term, we will be taking part in DT Dazzle Days finding out about healthy eating and developing some delicious recipes!
