Year 2

Hello Year 2 and a Happy New Year to you all!


We hope that you and the children have had a good break and are looking forward to the Spring term ahead.


In English, we will be studying a selection of narratives and non-fiction texts including lyrical explanation. Our focus texts this term are: In My Heart and A Crow's Tale. We will continue working on writing clear, full sentences using capital letters, finger spaces, accurate punctuation and grammar. 


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 beginning to learn about statistics, how to tell the time and multiplication and division strategies. We will also secure our knowledge of place value, addition and subtraction skills. 


In Science, our topic is 'Animals including Humans'. We will be categorising animals based on their characteristics and finding out about different animal and human lifecycles. 


In Geography, our topic is ‘Hot and Cold Places’. We will be finding out where the hottest and coldest places in the world are and using map skills to locate different areas. 


In History, we are exploring 'The History of Flight'. This topic explores the first flying machine and comparing the different inventions. We will find out about more famous explorers!



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