Year 2

    Welcome to Year 2!
    • Spring Term

Wow! Our first week back has been fantastic! The children have really enjoyed their learning this week. They are particularly enjoying our new topic!

English

In English, we are reading the book Tell me a Dragon by Jackie Morris. The children have really enjoyed reading this wonderfully illustrated book about dragons. We are beginning to look at why the author has chosen to use certain words in the story and what effect this has on the reader. Can we also include effective words in our writing? 

  

Maths

In maths we have been learning to make equal groups by sharing and dividing by 2,5 and 10. We have been using our previous knowledge of times tables to help us. We are using our maths vocabulary to explain how and why we are able to work out problems. Can we show another way to solve this problem? Can we explain how we solved the problem? 

Computing

In computing, we are learning how to write code for the computer. We have been using Scratch to create a set of instructions for our character to follow. We learnt how to draw castles using Paint.

 

Happy New year!

We hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Thank you for all the gifts that you gave us!

We are excited about all the new learning projects we will be completing this term.

‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets! ‘

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower…

Meet Rapunzel who lives in the tall, tall tower. Let’s build a new one…Whose is the tallest? Can you measure it?

Then, dig deeper , making burrows and tunnels just like the animals who live underground.

What’s that sound? I hear hooves going trip, trap over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath. He likes to gobble up little boys and girls! Make sure that your bridge is sturdy enough to take the weightand get us safely to the other side.

And finally… meet the three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!

Reading

Please help your child with their learning by reading at home daily, practicing their times tables and revising their spellings.

Homework

The children have home learning grids each half term with a choice of activities. Please bring any home learning in on a Thursday to share in class. Spelling tests will be on a Friday. Thank you for your support.
