Year 2 2019 - 2020

 Welcome to Year 2 




This term our topic will be: ‘A Walk On The Wild Side'

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  become more confident in adding and subtracting two, two digit numbers, secure methods for multiplication and division, solve missing word problems and continue to develop reasoning and problem solving skills.  As well as this they will focus on being Rock Stars every day whilst learning their tables. Make sure you practise your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables. Don't forget on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday children are given the opportunity to come and practice their times tables before school starts.  Doors open to these children at 8.30am.




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!  The heart warming story we have chosen this term will give us the perfect opportunity to talk about our feelings.  We will enjoy writing character descriptions, letters, factfiles and stories.  We will continue to improve our writing by improving our grammar and punctuation, learning more about sentence openers and expanded noun phrases.  What a busy term we have ahead!


Learning Adventure 

Our focus this term will be A Walk On The Wild Side.  In this fantastic new topic we will learning about habitats in our local area and comparing them to those of the rainforest.  We will be using our school grounds for lots of our learning.  We will enjoy drawing maps, adding details and creating a simple key.




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.
