Welcome to Magpies Class!

Miss Grabham


Welcome to Magpies with Miss Grabham and Mrs Crump.  Year 2 is full of enthusiasm and hardworking children.  The children are settling into Year 2 extremely well. We as teachers and the children have high expectations of ourselves and each other and are always striving to improve our handwriting, to learn something new and to develop our skills.


In English we will be beginning the term by looking at ‘Mrs Armitage on Wheels’. This will link to the terms topic of John Stringfellow (transport). We will then be writing a narrative, recount, letter, instructions and much more. Throughout the autumn term, we will be learning key grammar terms and practising applying them to our writing. As a year group, we will continue to practise our handwriting.


In Mathematics we will be beginning the term by learning about place value. Children will learn how many tens and ones are in a two-digit number and improve their fluency with counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10s and be introduced to counting in 3s. We will then move onto addition and subtraction with two-digit numbers.


Our topic this term is Chard. Within History we will learn about flight, looking at John Stringfellow and the Wright brothers. Our Art and DT will be inspired by ‘Lowry’ and we will be developing other skills such as plaiting, painting and using materials. In Religious we will be answering the question ‘What do Jewish people believe about the Torah?’. In science we explore how we can be healthy and the importance this has on our bodies.


Magpies will be taught P.E by Mr Jackson, a specialist coach, on a Thursday morning.
