Welcome to Year 2 Fir Class Page

Was Christopher Columbus a pirate or a pioneer?

Project Overview

During our last REAL project, we looked at what makes us human and some of the key characteristics both physically and emotionally that make us human. During this project, we will be exploring how what we inherit makes us who we are vs. what we hear, watch, see, listen to and how that influences who we are. The NATURE VS. NURTURE debate is a famous one that has been going on for many years and we are here to learn so we can offer our thoughts and opinions too!

Mini Outcomes

  • Diary- A day in the life of a pirate/ wanted poster.
  • Art- make painting and collages using seascapes as stimulus.
  • Money raising dress up celebration.

Final Outcome

  • An aspirations tree.

Year Group Information

Pupils will need to wear their PE kit to school every Wednesday.

Reading records (blue book) and home readers must be in school every day – we advise storing these in pupils’ school bags. Please make it a priority to read with your child and we ask that the reading record is signed by an adult.

Spellings are set on Seesaw on a Monday. Maths will be set on Seesaw on a Friday. Staff will mark the children’s work online. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework on Seesaw per week – Maths and spellings.

Pupils have received their own individual QR Code/Text Code to log in to Seesaw on a laptop or tablet at home. Smart phones can also be used to access the work, however pupils may struggle to type on such a small screen so we recommend handwritten answers on paper which can then be photographed and uploaded as that child’s piece of work.

Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they complete the following activities:

Reading Eggs- regular practice.

Maths Shed – regular practice.

Spelling Shed – regular practice.

Times Table Rockstars – regular practice.

Remember to keep up with what we are doing on the school website.
