Kestrels - Year 2

Welcome to Kestrel's Class

Hello! We are the Year 2 class and we all work very hard at being the best that we can be. We are always striving to reach our full potential and enjoy taking on new challenges! As we always say in class, 'We Never Give Up!' 


This half-term we will continue to focus upon our reading and writing skills, producing lots of interesting sentences using capital letters, full stops and exclamation marks. We will continue to look at addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in maths as well as daily counting. Children will also be estimating, practising their fluent recall of number bonds and applying their calculation skills to word problems. In science, we will be growing plants and investigating living things and their habitats.
