Year 2 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 2
This term our topic will be: ‘Why wouldn't my grandparents have played with an ipad?'
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 confident in counting objects and recogninsing and representing numbers to 100. They will learn about statistics, measure and fractions. Children will learn more about shapes and their properties. As well as this they will focus on being Rock Stars every day whilst continuing to learn their tables. Make sure you practise your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables.
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. We will continue to improve our writing by improving our grammar and punctuation, learning more about sentence openers and expanded noun phrases. We will be writing instructions, story retelling, writing a setting description, diary entry and various non-fiction. What a busy term we have ahead!
We will be linking History to our English text through learning about the toys from the past and the present. We will be investigating the history of teddies and researching about toys in our ICT lessons. In Science the children will learn about materials. They will be creating an investigation to explore how waterproof Teddy's coat is. They will be looking at how materials can be changed.
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.
Every Friday, the children will go home with English homework to be handed in on Wednesdays. There will also be online Mathematics homework for the children to complete.
We hope you really enjoy these activities and don't forget if you have any questions speak to Mrs Durban or Miss Atherton. We are always happy to help!
What an exciting term
we have planned! Year 2 is
so much fun!
