Year 2 CH and JJ 2022 - 2023

Welcome to Y2CH and Y2JJ

You can find the KS1 blog here. It features stories and photos from our exciting learning journey together.

Mrs Johnson, Mrs Cashmore and Mrs Harrison would like to welcome all the children back after a well-earned half term break.  

This half term our topic is called Real Life Superheroes.  What do you know about superheroes? Do you know any real life superheroes that have helped you?  We will be learning how to find out about real life superheroes from the recent past in our history lessons. Can you think of some ways we might find out about real life people? 
In Science, we will continue to observe the weather and seasons by visiting the secret garden. You can help your child by talking about what they notice about the changes in seasons.  This half  term Cool Chloe will help us to learn how to identify, classify and group food.  Book Boy will help us to carry out research about why exercise is important for us and Brilliant Betty will help us to make comparisons.  

In DT the children will be learning how to design, sew and evaluate their very own miniature superhero coat!  

We have lots of things planned for this half term, so keep your eyes peeled for emails and letters telling you all about the different activities and events. 

If you have any questions, please email school at  enquiries@marlcliffe.sheffield.sch.uk  

Thank you for your support,

Maths Home Learning Autumn 2 Week 4 - wb 21.11.22

This week we are working on recognising and describing the properties of 2D shapes. If you would like to support your child in these activities, give them practical things to do like finding shapes in objects around the house e.g. how many rectangles can they see? (Window, table top, picture frame, mat etc.) Can they say how many sides and vertices are on each shape? Are the sides straight or curved?

Maths Home Learning Autumn 2 Week 5 - wb 28.11.22

This week we are learning about 3D shapes and their faces, edges and vertices and using lines of symmetry to complete 2D shapes. If you would like to support your child in these activities, have a go at making/painting/drawing a symmetrical picture at home with 2D shapes running centrally along a line of symmetry in the middle of the paper, and then label the 2D shapes. Encourage them to identify the sides and vertices of each shape as well.

Maths Home Learning Autumn 2 Week 6 - wb 5.12.22

This week in Maths we are making patterns with shapes. These can be repeating e.g. circle, square, triangle, circle, square, triangle, etc., or symmetrical, e.g. circle, square, triangle, triangle, square, circle. The patterns have between 3 and 5 shapes in them. We are rotating some of the shapes as well. If you would like to support your child in these activities, ask them to draw their own repeating patterns or give them some you have made and ask them to continue the pattern. You can do this with objects around the house as well as drawing e.g. by threading pieces of fruit onto a kebab stick.
