Y2 Browne Class

Y2 Browne

Welcome to Browne Class! We are a very creative, artistic and friendly group of children!

This year our teachers are Mrs Afzal and Mrs Gillespie and our teaching assistants are Mrs Webb and Mrs Burdett. We look forward to working hard and sharing our learning and achievements with you.

During our English lessons, we will be reading books by our class author- Anthony Browne! He is a writer and illustrator of picture books- such as ‘Gorilla’, ‘Voices in the Park’, ‘The Tunnel’, ‘Little Beauty’ and ‘Into the Forest’.  After reading a range of his books we will be writing book reviews, to explain our thoughts on his stories and on his style of writing.  We will use drama to help us empathise with characters in the stories and possibly create new characters in our very own version.  We will also be looking at the pictures very carefully, as Anthony Browne loves hiding messages there!

Our first topic in Maths this half term will cover number, place value, calculations and measurements. In Science we will be exploring everyday materials. In History we will be studying the Victorians and we are going to be learning about a Victorian artist – L.S Lowry in Art.

Homework- will be set on Friday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. There will be a Maths task and an English/ Topic or Science task.

Spelling – word lists will be given out on Friday and tested the following Friday.

Reading – daily reading with an adult is expected, and this should be recorded in the children’s reading records.

Please ensure children have PE kit every day and that it is clearly labelled to help children identify their belongings. Advice on earrings is that all jewellery should be removed for safety for all PE activities.

School stationary is provided- please would children not bring their own pencil-cases to avoid them being lost or damaged.
