Autumn Term 2
We have had a fantastic start to year 2, lots of learning from my trusty shipmates!
This half term our topic is animals! We will be learning how animals are born, grow and reproduce as well as thinking more carefully about the needs of animals and humans. We will also be re-visiting the weather patterns and continents and oceans of the world to help us identify and locate different types of animals around the world and research why they choose to live in these areas.
In English, we will still be focussing on sentence structure and handwriting as well as maintaining our goal of including expanded noun phrases in our sentences in various types of narrative. In maths, we will be revisiting place value, addition and subtraction and number bonds as well as starting to learn multiplication, division, fractions and measurement.
We will have PE on a Monday and Tuesday and due to enrichment on a Friday, and possible additional PE on Thursday, your PE kit will need to be in school all week. Homework will be set every week. There will be 1 piece of mymaths, 10 games on TT rock stars and a spelling list on spelling shed to be completed by the end of each school week.
I can’t wait to introduce to all to a new member of our year 2 class when we come back to school this half term!
