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, persuasive leaflets and adventure stories. In maths we work hard on place value, number bonds within 100, addition and subtraction. We will also be learning about multiplication, division and money. Within science, we consolidate our ‘working scientifically’ skills, sort and discuss materials and their properties.
Our topic work brings together science, art, history, computing, geography and design technology. The children will be involved in yoga and ball games in P.E. Your child’s full P.E. kit is needed in school on Wednesdays and Fridays. Reading books will be changed throughout on their specific day. However, your child can 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.
During the Spring Term we have two main topics. The first of which will be ‘China’ followed by ‘Castles’ in the second half term.
In Literacy the children write poetry and non-chronological reports. In maths the children work hard to develop their multiplying and division skills as well as looking into statistics. Within science, the children will continue to build on their ‘working scientifically’ skills.
During this half term our topics will be ‘Dinosaurs’ and ‘Deadly 60’. We will be reading stories linked to our topic. We will be re-telling stories, writing sets of instructions, chronological reports and diary entries. In Numeracy the children will be working on measurement of length, time, volume and capacity. In science, we will be learning about life cycles, living things and their habitats.
