Welcome to Saint Peter’s Year 2/1.
Our names are Miss Bowers and Mrs Noble (our class teaching assistant), we work together as a team to provide fun and engaging lessons, to make sure the day is as enjoyable as possible.
Just a reminder on some dates for your diary:
Reading books are changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure you read with your child each night and make note of this in their reading record book.
Homework is given every Friday and is returned the following Wednesday.
Please remember that children should also have the school track suit as well as their shorts and t-shirts, these will be required in the weeks to come as the temperature starts to drop.
Please could I also remind you to check your child has their names in all items of clothing to make sure they get back to their rightful owner if misplaced or found.
Please keep an eye of this page for more information about what we have been up to and to have a sneak peek at any photos we have taken along our learning journey this year. Please also find below the end of year expectation for Year 1 and Year 2 children.
It is important that your child is reading a range of books regularly. Click the link below for an idea of what books are suitable for Year 1 and Year 2 children.
We have been learning about capacity and how to measure it accurately. We started by looking at the different equipment we can use to measure capacity and the scales on the equipment. We noticed that not all scales are the same and sometimes numbers are missing.
At the end of the week we made some potions! We had to very carefully measure out different liquids using the correct equipment. We had lots of fun!
The Great Outdoors
Today we started our new topic 'The Great Outdoors'. During this topic the children will be developing their geography skills by looking at maps. By the end of the topic the children will be able to follow a map with a key and also create their own maps.
Today we started our topic by looking at world maps on different scales. The children spent some time at the beginning of the lesson looking at a world map in an atlas. They were trying to see if they could find any countries that they had heard of before. The children were then given the challenge of finding some new countries and oceans in their atlases. Next they had to find the same countries but on a different map. The children were given a coloured world map, an all green world map and a 3D globe! All the children worked very hard and were able to find up to 10 countries and oceans.
World Book Day
In Class 2.1 the children love reading, so they were very excited when they got the opportunity to dress up as some of their favourite book characters on World Book Day! The children celebrated World Book Day by completing lots of fun activities.The children also painted some beautiful book character spoons which are now displayed in our new reading area.
To celebrate World Book Day the children were invited to think about how their favourite book, or a book that is important to them can be represented in a simple jar. Class 2.1 had some amazing and creative jars which are now displayed in our reading area and throughout school.
Thank you to all the children and parents for all the effort you put into the costumes and jars. The children had a great day celebrating.
The Human Body
In Year 2/1 we have been looking at the different parts of the human body. We started our topic by looking at the different parts of the body we can see on the outside such as our eyes and hair, but we wanted to find out more about what was underneath our skin! We were all very excited to find out more about our skeletons and why our skeleton is so important. Together, we put together a skeleton jigsaw and a long the way learnt all the different names of the bones in our body. After learning all the names of the different bones in our body, we made our own skeleton pictures.
