In Year 2 we are all aiming to be MAGIC learners with lots of exciting things happening this spring term!
Our topic for the first half term is Let's go on Safari' where the children will be learning about Kenya and African animals. During the second half term our topic is 'Healthy Me' where Year 2 will have the opportunity to make a healthy pizza!
In English, we will be starting the term by reading the narrative 'The Lion King' by. The children will write a character description of Simba focusing on using expanded noun phrases in their sentences. We will then continue our lion theme and move on to reading the narrative 'How the Lion got its Roar' where the children will retell the story but change one feature to make it their own. After half term the children will write instructions using Macbeth as a stimulus and look at the features of traditional tales.
In maths, Year 2 will be looking a range of measures ad reading a variety of scales, including circular and vertical scales. The children will then move onto statistics using tables, pictograms and block graphs. We will then move onto working out doubles and halves, followed by a unit on multiplication and division.
Homework will continue to be sent home on Fridays, to be returned the following Thursday. Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday, with the spelling test on the following Thursday.
Reading records are checked every Wednesday. Children should aim to read at least three times a week but we like to aim for five!
PE will continue to be taught every Friday.
