Year 2 2019 - 2020

Mrs Jeffery

 Welcome to Year 2 

 

AUTUMN TERM

 

This term our topic will be: ‘Where will the naughty bus take us?'

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

Mathematics

In Mathematics, children will become confident in counting objects and recogninsing and representing numbers to 100.   They will learn the value of two digit numbers and partition these numbers into tens and units.  Children will compare numbers and begin counting in twos, three, fives and tens.  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. 

 

English

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!  We will continue to improve our writing by improving our grammar and punctuation, learning more about sentence openers and expanded noun phrases.  We will write recounts, story maps, instructions and letters.  What a busy term we have ahead!

 

Learning Adventure 

We will be linking Geography to our English text through learning some basic map work - we will identify features of a map and plan a route.  The children will also create their own birds eye view maps.  In Science the children will learn about plants and what a plant needs to grow tall and healthy.   They will ask questions using a variety of new scientific vocabulary and make close observations using equipment.  We will be using our school grounds for lots of our learning. 

 

PE

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

 

Homework

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.
