Year 2 2021 - 2022
Hello and welcome to Year 2.
Your child has now entered an important stage of their primary school experience as they enter the final year of KS1.
Your child will be involved in exciting, creative curriculum topics where we aim to give your child a love of learning by building links and enhancing learning across all subjects.
In Year 2 we strive to make all children feel confident, independent and safe. We want our children to leave Year 2 with a developing growth mindset and an eagerness to challenge themselves.
We hope your child enjoys Year 2 as much as I will!
In the Autumn Term our topics are ‘Our Wonderful World’ and ‘The Great Fire of London’.
In literacy we write poems, diary entries, persuasive leaflets and adventure stories. In maths we consolidate our place value knowledge, learn number bonds within 100 and learn addition/subtraction strategies. We will also be learning about multiplication, division and money during this term. Towards the end of our first topic, we may even get a visit from some wonderful animals which will teach us even more about Our Wonderful World!
In science we will be learning about everyday materials and their properties. We will be thinking about what houses were made of in the past and compare them to the materials that are used today. We will be finding out how the Great Fire of London began and we might even get a visit from the Fire Brigade!
Our topic work brings together science, art, history, computing, geography and design technology. The children will be involved in yoga, ball games, athletics and dance in P.E.
During the Spring Term we have two main topics which are ‘China’ and ‘Castles’. In Literacy the children will write poetry, instructions and non-chronological reports. In maths the children work hard to develop their multiplication and division skills as well as looking into statistics, shape and fractions.

Your child’s full P.E. kit is needed in school on Wednesdays and Fridays. Reading books will be changed throughout the week. Your child can also change their book during the week at any point if they need it changing more frequently. Listening to your child read regularly is vitally important, as is signing their reading record to say that they have read their book.
