Year 2 Polar Bears

Welcome to the Year 2 Polar Bears!


My name is Miss Fallaize and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 2 Polar Bears this year. Mrs Ibrahim and Mrs Hargreaves will also be helping us in Year 2.  At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.


Important Reminders

* PE - Our PE day is Tuesday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.

* School Library - The Polar Bears are timetabled to visit the school library every Monday lunchtime.  Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!

* Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday.  All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term.  Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.

This half term, we will be learning...



This half term we will be studying the text 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle through a range of exciting speaking and listening, reading and writing activities. We will be producing and presenting a wonderful innovated story about someone else moving in next door to us!


Big Writes

This half term Year 2 will be completing some outstanding pieces of writing. In our writing we will be focusing on using varied sentences types such as statements, exclamations, commands and questions.  We will also be using expanded noun phrases to provide the reader with that extra bit of detail! These pieces of writing could be based on an exciting event that has happened, a video clip, music or an exciting imaginary setting or character. 




This half term we will be covering the following areas in our Maths lessons...

Place Value

Addition and Subtraction



Our topic for this half term is 'The Place Where I Live'. In geography we will be researching human and physical features of our locality, such as Witton Park. We will also be creating and planning for a new and exciting play area for our locality.

In history we will be looking at Blackburn and how it has changed throughout the years in particular how houses and playground equipment has evolved. 



Our topic for this half term is 'Animals Including Humans'. We will be learning about and noticing that both animals and humans have offspring which grow into adults. We will also be looking closely at the similarities and differences between humans and animals.
