Term 1

This is an overview of some of the exciting work Year 2 children will be enjoying in our first term.

 

Literacy

 

This term the focus is on three areas:

  • Instructions
  • Poetry
  • Information Text 

Children will continue with their reading books and we will send spellings home on a Monday for your children to practice. Comprehension and reading homework will be sent home each week. It is important to support your child's reading at home, just ten minutes a night can make such a difference. Please speak to the teacher if you have any questions about homework

 

 

      Mathematics

 

This term the focus will be:

  • Number work
  • Problem solving

 

Each week on our ‘learning together’ sheet we will provide details of the math work undertaken in class and set weekly homework (this may be a worksheet or maths game).

 

 

 


History and Geography

 

In Geography we will be learning all about our environment. 

In History we will be learning all about a famous historical event the 'Great Fire of London'.

 

 

Science

Computing

ICT is taught throughout each subject as children use a variety of resources (ipads, computers, cameras, and internet) to find and produce information. This term we focus on writing computer code. We are also leaning about e-safety.
