Miss McClelland

Year 2 Teacher

Welcome to Year 1/2!

Our teachers are Miss McClelland and Mrs Cartright.

We will be sharing lots of photographs of all our fabulous work on here, along with our new Twitter class page. Follow us @HolyFamiluL8_12

This half term we will be covering:



This half term there will be looking at Traditional Tales, retelling them, looking at characters and settings,  sequencing them and writing them. We will be learning how to write labels, captions and sentences independently. We will also be learning what an adjective is, and using them to describe characters and settings in a Traditional Tales. 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 as well as  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 Number and Place Value. We will be orally counting up to 100, forwards and backwards, and reading, writing and counting numbers up to 100. We will be representing these numbers using pictures, objects and number lines. Finally, we will look at one more and one less, mentally, pictorially and using objects.



Our topic this term will  be 'Materials.' We will explore this through the tale of the Three Little Pigs. We will look at materials objects are made from, naming everyday materials, the properties of everyday materials and grouping materials by their properties.


We will  be looking at what life was like for our grandparents. 



We will be learning Geographical basic skills: how to read an Atlas, about the countries in the United Kingdom and the continents and oceans of the world. 


Come and See

Year 1: Our Come and See topics are 'Families' about us being a part of God's family, and 'Belonging' about Baptism.

Year 2: Our Come and See topics are 'Beginnings' about God's creation of the world and us, and 'Signs and Symbols' about Baptism.


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 Beginnings with Mrs Clein.



P.E. is every Friday morning so P.E. kits will need to be brought in on this day every week.

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