Welcome to Year 2!

Samuel_Pepys(1)

English

We will be studying a variety of authors this half term, but will be writing stories, instructions and character descriptions. We'll use drama and reading to deepen our understanding of what we read. 

Every week on Thursdays, we will be having a 'Hygge Reading Session'. This is where we spend an hour reading with a hot chocolate and something comfy. It's a Danish concept and our home learners loved it so much that we've decided to adopt it for the whole year!

Maths

Our topics for this half term are multiplication & division, statistics, shape and fractions. We will be using tally charts to record data and pictograms and bar charts to present it. We will also look at 2d and 3d shapes, making sure to understand their properties. Later in the term we will begin to focus on franctions as we will ask children to find and recognise a half, quarter and a third. 

Ourselves/Materials

In Science we are learning about humans and other animals. We are looking at how we grow throughout our lives, healthy and unhealthy food, excersing and hygene and babies (both human and other animals. During this term it is national science week, throughout this week we will be conducting a range of experiments making various predictions.  

Great Fire of London

In history, we are studying the Great Fire of London. We will learn about Samuel Pepys, Thomas Farriner and other people who lived in 1666. We will be building houses from 1666 and might even have our own Great Fire in the playground!

Spellings

There will be a spelling test every Friday. The list of words to be learnt will be sent home every Friday along with the results of the previous test.

Reading

As a school we place a high value on reading at home and we have the expectation that parents/carers will read daily with their children at home. Children will bring home their reading records and a book each night but this must come back to school the next day. Due to current covid-restrictions, teachers are not able to write in children's reading records.

Learning Logs 

Learning logs provide the children with opportunities to conduct and present their own research linked to the current class topic. These will be sent home every half term.
