Welcome to Year 2



Welcome to the Summer term in Year 2. 

We hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and are ready for another very exciting term in Year 2.

This term our topic is called 'Remarkable Rainforests.' 

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!


MathsSouth View Community Primary School - Maths Curriculum

In Maths, we will be learning about position and direction, problem solving, time, weight, volume and temperature.



The last wolf

Last half term we started our English programme Pathways To Write and we were amazed by the writing that was produced by our Year Two children.  We cannot wait to see where it will take us next!  This half term we will be exploring the text ‘The Last Wolf’ by Mini Grey.  Just like our previous text, this text has so many opportunities for fantastic writing and getting the children using their imaginations and creativity.  As well as developing further those skills previously taught; the children will be participating in discussions and role play, recognising simple recurring language used in story writing, writing narrative based on real life experiences and writing for different purposes.  They will also be researching, writing a persuasive speech, creating guides and lists, descriptive writing and so much more. 


Learning Adventure

This area of learning links to many areas of the curriculum. The

Geography focus will take children into the world of rainforests where

they will be researching the different rainforest locations, using the

world map. They will learn about the layers of the rainforest, climate,

weather and the deforestation of the rainforests. They will enjoy a

residential trip to Fox Howl in Delamere and will explore the human

and physical features on their trip and compare them to The Spinney at school.

Our Science topic during the Summer term will see the children                                      


observe and describe how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants.

We will find out and describe how plants need water, light and a                                     

suitable temperature to grow. We will be exploring and comparing

the differences between things that are living, dead, and things that

have never been alive. The children will identify that most living things

live in habitats. They will explore and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including micro-habitats and describe how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain.



PE will be delivered twice a week on Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit and pumps or trainers, in school at all times.



We put a high emphasis on reading in school with daily reading and spelling activities.  It’s our expectation that all children read at least 3 times per week at home.  We ask that parents read with their children and sign the home journals at least 3 times a week (ideally every night).


Planners/ Messages Please ensure your child’s home journal is in school everyday. If you wish to deliver a message to your child’s teachers please use the home journal as a form of communication, however please send your child into the class with their journal if there is a message in it.


Homework:  Spelling – 5 practice games on EdShed every week.

                      Maths – 5 practice games on EdShed every week .

                      Grammar on quiz shed every other week.


Homework is set on a Friday and need to be completed by following Wednesday.
