Welcome to Year2!

IYear 2 and we are going to be working extremely hard this year. We are working on the new national curriculum objectives for year 2. We are very busy through each objective and achieving all of our targets. Throughout  the next academic year will be getting ready for our SATS tests in June. This year we will be basing our learning around three topics. During the autumn we will be learning about ‘Our Sensational senses’.

During the spring we will focus on ‘The Magic Toy Maker’ and during our final term we will be basing our learning around ‘The things people do (jobs). Alongside these topics run our literacy books that will link with our topic for the term. 
Our literature for this year includes, Where’s my teddy? Monsters Inc/Molly and the Night Monster, Handa’s Surprise/Shopping Basket/Mama Panya’s Pancakes, On The Way Home, Princess & The Pea/ Princess & Pea Traditional Tale and Traction Man.

Our literacy work includes looking fiction and non-fiction writing such as story writing, character profiles, instructional writing, report writing and sentence building activities. We will be focusing on our spelling this year as well as building on SPAG skills. To promote reading at home we are now sending reading books home with the year 2 children to read at home with adults.

During numeracy we will be focusing on the calculations policy for the first term paying close attention to written and mental methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as shape and space, problem solving, money and data handling.

During science we will be focusing on senses, light and dark, forces, keeping healthy and materials. The children have an enrichment afternoon every Monday where they get the chance to participate in a range of activities throughout the year including swimming, PE, cooking and I.C.T. .
