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 our Twitter class page. Follow us @HolyFamilyL8_12

This half term we will be covering:



This half term we will be looking at Famous Authors from Liverpool by learning and retelling 'Dogger' by Shirley Hughes using Talk4Writing. We can't wait to tell you the story off by heart, and then to change it to another story where something is lost and then found. We will then be learning 'The Sound Collector' a poem by Roger McGough and changing it to the sounds that would be collected in our school. We will be doing lots of cross curricular work, applying our story writing skills to the Easter Story. 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 Fractions. We will be finding halves and quarters of shapes, objects and quantities and counting in halves and quarters. Year 2 will also be looking at thirds of shapes, objects and quantities. Finally, we will apply it all by problem solving, reasoning and answering missing box questions. We will then look at Measures, applying our knowledge of the four operations to length, weight and capacity.



Our topic this term will  be 'Seasonal Change' We will learn about the four seasons, how the weather changes in these seasons and how the length of the day changes throughout the year too.



We will be learning about Kitty Wilkinson, a local hero for opening the first public wash-house in Liverpool in order to help with the Cholera epidemic in the Victorian Liverpool slums.


Come and See

Year 1: Our Come and See topics are 'Special Meals' about Mass and 'Changes' about preparing for Easter in Lent.

Year 2: Our Come and See topics are 'Thanksgiving' about Mass and 'Opportuntities' about preparing for Easter in Lent.


Art and DT

We will be looking at Cooking and Nutrition in DT, looking at the foods of Liverpool and whether we like them or not! We will also be thinking about what we need to do in order to be hygienic and keep ourselves healthy.



Mrs Delve is teaching us Music, where we will be learning about different genres of music, including Baroque, Bhangra and Folk.


Get Set for Life

We will be looking at Going for Goals with Mrs Clein.



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 Dance with Mr Furnival, and Gymnastics with Miss McClelland.

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