Welcome to Year 2
Autumn Term 2017
It it has been a great start to the term so far and the children have come back eager to learn!
In Literacy this term we will be focusing on our beautiful, cursive hand writing. We will be focusing on learning our weekly spelling as well as our Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words, not only using them in discrete lessons but applying them to our writing across the curriculum.
Our book corner is based on the wonderful world of Roal Dahl so that has inspired a lot of our writing in Literacy this term. We will begin by writing instructions for our very own marvellous medicines, create our own Giants and write character descriptions for them as well as inventing sweet machines for a special chocolate factory.
We will be embedding our knowledge of nouns, verbs and adjectives throughout the term and using these to make our writing more exciting!
In Maths this term we will continue to develop our understanding of the main four operations including addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. We will then apply these skills to problem solving activities and word problems. In addiition this we will be exploring shape, naming a variety of shapes and also identifying their properties.
In Science this term we will be exploring animal's habitats, their life cycles and how to differentiate between groups of animals like vertebrates and invertebrates.
In RE we will be exploring the creation story in great depths using art, drama and story writing. We will be writing poems and prayers to God demonstrating how grateful we are for his wonderful creation.
In in our topic ' The Beauty of the Earth' we will be exploring a variety of topics such as: endangered animals, fair trade food and how we can look after our precious planet.
PE will be on Thursday and Friday this term so please ensure children have a named PE kit.
Our class assembly iscon Friday 13th October and we hope to see you there!
If if you have any queries or concerns please don't hesitate to speak to one of the Year Two team we will try and be available at the end of the school day.
