Year 2 2018 - 2019

Mrs Durban

Mrs Jeffery

 Welcome to Year 2 




This term our topic will be: ‘Let's Explore'

The children will be working hard to achieve their goals in all areas of the curriculum.

Have a look at some of the things they will be learning!





In Mathematics, children will  develop their understanding of place value and learn strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will also develop their reasoning skills through problem solving. As well as this they will focus on being Rock Stars every day whilst learning their tables. Make sure you practise your 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.




In English we will be reading about a very special charcter in need of some adventure.  In Year 2 we like to focus our English learning around a book.  The book intitally remains a secret from the children as we encourage the children to speak and make predictions about the story even before it is revealed. The big reveal usually happens a few weeks into the term.  Watch this space!  This adventurous story will give us the perfect opportunity to write postcards, factfiles, character descriptions, letters and reports.   We will also be improving our understanding of grammar and improving our use of basic spelling rules. It will be a very busy term!


Learning Adventure 

Our focus this term will be Africa which will have a direct link to our text. We will be comparing customs, learning about the 7 continents of the world and looking at the lives of significant world explorers.




Our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday, but children should have their PE kit in school every day. Please check that all PE kit is clearly labelled.





Every Friday, the children will go home with spellings and English homework to be handed in on Wednesdays. There will also be online Mathematics homework for the children to complete.

Spelling will be tested on Wednesdays. The children will be tested on their 5 spellings plus an additional 5 unseen words of the same pattern as well as 3 key words. Please note that they words for your child’s age group can be found in their planner.

Keep working hard children. Your work is looking great!
