Welcome to Owls Class - Year 2


This half term we will centre our learning around the theme ‘From Pit to Port.’ We will launch our learning with our wider curriculum block which focuses on History, asking and answering the question, ‘How did China Clay transform our area?’ This will lead into our Geography lessons, asking and answering the question, ‘How is Par connected to the world?’

On Wednesday 5th June we will go on a class trip to Wheal Martyn.


Our Talk for Writing text will be ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch,’ by Ronda and David Armitage. We will complete this narrative by writing our own ‘losing tale.’ In Design and Technology we will be investigating how to make a healthy sandwich for the Lighthouse Keeper.

In Maths we will be learning about Position and Direction then moving on to Statistics and then reviewing our learning in Place Value and Multiplication  and Division.

In P.E  the children will be learning about ‘Athletics’ learning to sprint, strategies to enhance our performance in races and take part in team relay races. This will lead us up to Sports Day at Par Track, where we will showcase our skills!

Homework books will be sent home every Friday and we collect them back in to school on Wednesday morning.

Please make sure you listen to your child read as often as possible- at least 4 times weekly. Books will be changed every 3 days during Read, Write, Inc lessons. Children in the comprehension groups will change their chapter books in class as necessary.

Pupils will be given spellings in their homework books at the beginning of each half term. There will be a small spelling test each week.

Tapestry will be used when appropriate for us to share practical learning, special events, homework and important class messages. Please make sure you check the app regularly.

PE days are Wednesday and Friday.

Please make sure your PE kit is named and kept in school at all times. We will send kits home at the end of every half term to be washed.


Thank you for your continued support
