Year 2

Brilliant Britain

We enjoyed becoming Londoners in the spring term as we immersed ourselves in the London life. The children created their own map of London with Junk modelling buildings. Children showed lots of enthusiasm learning about the country we live in and have a vast knowledge about the Great Fire of London. Ask them questions at home!

Lots of Dojo points were given this term for showing our wonderful character counts; ambitious, bravery, compassionate, confident, courteous, creative, happy and healthy, kind, resilient and tolerant.

 

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside!

Our new topic for the summer term is ‘Oh we do like to be beside the seaside’ where children will learn about the seaside in the UK. Children will get the chance to create seaside scenes, identify characteristics of coastlines and locate different seaside resorts in the UK. Our end goal is to make a seaside in a jar.

During the science this term we will be learning about living things and their habitats. They will get to identify habitats and why they suit the animal, create food chains and compare the differences between things that are living, dead and never been living.

English

Phonics is taught daily and our spelling tests are held on a Friday. Reading is a big push this year; working on our comprehension skills. Reading at home is vital to support our work at school.  See our reading tab next to this page for more information and example comprehension questions.

 

Math

During the summer term we will be learning about time, fractions and mass, capacity and temperature. We will also be consolidating all areas of math learning. The children have been working extremely hard on their times table ensuring they can recall their 2, 5 and 10 up to 12X. All children have a login to NumBots and TTRockstars where they can continue their learning at home improving their fluency. Take a look at the following document for Key Maths Skills:
