We have a very busy term, settling children into year 2, a trip to Formby and preperations  for Christmas. 



This term the focus is on three areas:

  • Instructions.
  • Poetry
  • Information text

The children will continue with their reading books and we will send spellings home on a Monday for your children to practice.





This term the focus will be:

  • Number work
  • Solving Problems


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 describing and comparing different places. Our trip to Formby in September compliments our Geography work this term, providing children with an opportunity to visit four different habitats.

In History we are finding out about a famous historical event the ‘Great Fire of London’.




In science our Focus will be plants and animals in the local environment. Our trip to Formby is also a starting point for this topic. Children will enjoy the experience of visiting 4 different habitats. We will also be learning about healthy eating and keeping ourselves healthy.




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.



Art & Design Technology

This term we look at Drawing using pencils, charcoal and pastels. Children also make and design fantastic cards and hats for Christmas.



Children will enjoy a range of outdoor and indoor sports activities, with a professional sports coach, alongside movement and dance.





A variety of songs are taught in preparation for Christmas concerts and percussion instruments played.




Throughout the curriculum there is a strong focus on PHSE (Personal Health, Social and Emotional) learning. This term we focus on:

  • new beginnings
  • environmental problems
  • managing friendships.
  • healthy eating




We cover all the main world religions, this term we are looking Christianity, Hinduism, and Judaism.
