Welcome to the Year 2 area!
In this area you will find details of some of the learning that has been taking place in Year 2 classrooms.
To start off the academic year 2020-2021 we have had great fun working with a text called ‘The Colour Monster.’
This is a book all about feelings. One day, Colour Monster wakes up feeling very confused. His emotions are all over the place; he feels angry, happy, calm, sad and scared all at once! To help him, a little girl shows him what each feeling means through colour. A gentle exploration of feelings for young and old alike.
Children responded well to this text and felt comfortable and at ease talking about how they were feeling returning to school after so long but also starting a new Year Group.
Each morning, children had the opportunity to write about how they felt that day. They were able to talk about and identify when they were feeling a different emotion to the day before and why that might be. This supported teachers in identifying children who might need to talk about their feelings more – in a 1:1 context. Children were able to write about what their favourite colour emotion was and why as well as making their own Colour monster using a range of art resources.
Look at our wonderful corridor displays to support us in talking about our feelings:
