Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand

Year 2



Welcome to Year 2, we are so pleased to see you all back.  We have such an amazing year ahead of us with lots of activities that we are looking forward to.


This term we will learning about Materials in Science and looking at how suitable materials are for their purpose.


In Geography, we are finding out about hot and cold areas across the world in relation to the equator.


In English this term, we will be reading the story of ‘The Gigantic Turnip’. We will be using drama to generate some creative writing and write our own alternative versions of the story. In our reading sessions, we will be continuing to read in small groups using the Little Wandle Scheme.


In Maths, we are learning all about numbers up to 100, consolidating our knowledge of place value and looking at different ways to represents numbers.


Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has a full kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor PE in school at all times. It will be sent home at the end of each term.
