Welcome to Yellow Class.

In Year 2 we are the Superheroes!  

Come and visit 'Hero Headquarters', to find out what we are learning about.


We enjoy completing Maths games and puzzles on the iPads and finding the answers to really tricky calculations.  We really love our new problem solving challenges, where we can show off our learning and understanding of different mathematical concepts.

In English we love reading stories and information texts linking to our exciting topics. We will start the term with Poetry.  We will be thinking back to our previous topic of The Great Fire of London and making poems all about fire.  We will then be looking at some Christmas texts including two new books “Santa Selfie” and “The Santa Trap”.  This term we will be thinking of different ways to start a sentence.  We will also be using co-ordinating conjunctions (for, and, but, or, yet so) to join our sentences together and use adjectives to describe a noun. We will continue to work hard on spelling key words and forming letters correctly.


This half term our topic is called ‘Fabulous Festivals’. We will be learning about where Diwali and Hanukkah are celebrated and about how they are celebrated. We will be reading the religious story ‘Rama and Sita’ and making information books about Diwali and other celebrations. We will also be finding out about how Christmas is celebrated around the world.

Our SEAL topic this half term is ‘Good to Be Me’.

We will continue to work hard on spelling key words and forming letters correctly.

In an afternoon we enjoy doing lots of different things including, Science, History, Geography Art, Music, PSHE and Computing.  We like to use our English and Maths skills in these lessons, to show off how much we've remembered, learnt and understood.
