Y1/2M 2017 - 2018

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 here, along with our new Twitter class page. Follow us @HolyFamilyL8_12

This half term we will be covering:



This half term we will be looking at Bonfire Night poetry, writing senses poems, acrostic poems and shape poems. We will then be learning and reselling 'Class Two at the Zoo' using Talk4Writing. We will be doing lots of cross curricular work, writing diaries about the Gunpowder Plot and retelling the Nativity story. Everything we learn in English and Phonics we will be applying to other areas of the curriculum, writing labels, captions and sentences 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 RWInc lessons your child will get spellings to learn at home. Can these please be returned on Friday?



We will be looking at Addition and Subtraction. We will be adding up to 20, learning number bonds up to 20 and learning that Addition can be done in any way, using practical apparatus and number lines. We will be looking at subtracting similarly, and finding out that Addition and Subtraction are the inverse of each other. Finally, we will apply it all by problem solving, reasoning and answering missing box questions.



Our topic this term will  be 'Animals including Humans.' We will learn about different types of animals, characteristics and body parts of animals and learn about our senses.


We will  be looking at what life was like for our grandparents when they were little, how life has  changed and asking questions to real life grandparents. After that we will look at the history of Bonfire Night, with the Gunpowder Plot  what happened,  why did it happen and who was Guy Fawkes?



We will be learning where  different animals live through Science.


Come and See

Year 1: Our Come and See topics are 'Belonging' about Baptism and 'Waiting' about Advent and Christmas.

Year 2: Our Come and See topics are 'Signs and Symbols' about Baptism and 'Preparations' about Advent and Christmas.

We will also be practising for our Nativity performance.


Art and DT

We will be looking at Basic Skills in Art, about colour, texture, materials and  pattern.



Miss Evans is returning as Mrs Delve to teach us Music.


Get Set for Life

We will be looking at Getting on and falling out with Mrs Clein.



P.E. is every Wednesday andFriday afternoon so P.E. kits will need to be brought in on these days every week.

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