Welcome to Year 2!
I hope you had a lovely break and are looking forward to all of the fun learning we have planned for this term.Click here to view our topic web for Term 1.
Our enquiry this term is ''Time travellers - What will we find?" and we will be finding out about Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Throughout the topic the children will be travelling back to the time when Brunel lived. They will be finding out who he was and what it was like for him living at that time. The children will start to explore some of his inventions.
Our key author this term is Roger Hargreaves. He wrote many stories including The Mr Men collection. If you have any of their books at home, it would be great if you could share them with the class.
During English this term we will be focussing on the story ‘10 things I can do to help my world.’ We will use the story to inspire our writing and produce letters to teach others how they can help the world and acrostic poems.
In Maths we will be focusing on number skills. The children will be exploring their knowledge of place value, including comparing and ordering numbers. We will also be interpreting representations of numbers such as number lines and pictorial diagrams. During the second half of the term the children will be developing their understanding of addition and subtraction.
Keep up the great work!
