Miss McClelland

Year 2 Teacher

Welcome to Year 1/2!

Our teachers are Miss McClelland and Mrs Cartwright.

We will be sharing lots of photographs of all our fabulous work on our Twitter class page. Follow us @HolyFamilyL8_12

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back by the following Thursday. There will be a Maths focus and an English focus.

This half term we will be covering:



This half term we will be looking at writing formal and informal letters, including letters to Queen Elizabeth II, and then will be learning and retelling 'The Tin Forest' by Helen Ward using Talk4Writing. We can't wait to tell you the story off by heart, and then to change it to another story. We will be doing lots of cross curricular work, applying our knowledge of the Queen in our letters and our instruction writing skills to growing plants in Science. Everything we learn in English and Phonics we will be applying to other areas of the curriculum, writing sentences and narratives in other topics.

We have daily phonic lessons which are carried out in Read Write Inc and guided reading sessions to look at reading comprehension, as well as handwriting and grammar.

Every Monday from their Read Write Inc lessons your child will get spellings to learn at home. Can these please be returned on Friday?



We will be looking at Measures, applying our knowledge of the four operations to capacity and money. We will be learning how to tell the time and to recognise 2D and 3D shapes.



Our topic this term will  be 'Plants' We will learn about identifying different plants and their structures. We will be observing how a plant grows and learning about what it needs to grow well.



We will be learning about our monarchy, their role in our country and facts about Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II. We will be looking at similarities and differences throughout history.


Come and See

Year 1: Our Come and See topics are 'Holidays and Holy Days' looking at the celebration of Pentecost and 'Being Sorry' about saying sorry when we do wrong and forgiving others when they have done wrong. 

Year 2: Our Come and See topics are 'Spread the Word' about the celebration of Pentecost and 'Rules' about how rules can help at home, in school and in the Church family.


Art and DT

We will be looking at making a Plants wall hanging using what we know about Textiles and learning how to cut and join fabrics. We will also be drawing Plants in the style of Monet, using pencil and watercolour paints.



Mrs Delve is teaching us Music, where we will be working with the Liverpool Philharmonic on 'Fairy Magic' music.


Get Set for Life

We will be looking at Relationships with Mrs Clein. This includes how to explore feelings in our relationships, and how to cope with bereavement.



P.E. is every Wednesday and Friday afternoon so P.E. kits will need to be brought in on these days every week. We are learning Multi-Skills of Running, Jumping and Throwing with Mr Furnival and with Miss McClelland.

We hope you continue to enjoy looking at all the wonderful things we will be doing in class on our Twitter.
