Year 2

Spring 2023


In English, we will be studying a selection of narratives and non-fiction texts. 

We will be writing full sentences using varied sentence starters, conjunctions and interesting vocabulary. In Spring 2, we will be writing our own poems based on 'If I were in Charge of the World'.

Reading is very important and it would be greatly appreciated if you could please support your child at home to read regularly. Please ask questions about the text to help build their comprehension skills.


In Maths, we are learning to tell the time, understanding word problems and counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. We are building our fluency skills by recognising place value and beginning to solve calculations mentally. 


In Science, our topic is 'Animals including Humans' and 'Living Things and their Habitats'. We will be exploring the world around us and beginning to identify and categorise plants and animals based on different features.


In History, our topic is ‘Great Fire of London’. We have an exciting workshop to further our understanding of how the fire started and what life was like in London during the 17th Century.


In Geography, we will be learning about 'Hot and Cold Places'. We are understanding how to use an Atlas, understanding temperature and weather and learning about animals and adaptation.


During our Art and Design and Technology lessons, we are exploring 'Expressive Painting'. We will be working with different mediums to create our own Art pieces. Also, we will be designing our own vehicles using wheels and axles. 


Please remember that we have an open door policy so if you have any concerns, please speak to us.
