Welcome to the Year 2 page!
Literacy - This half term the children will be exploring the theme of 'Ourselves'. We have begun this work by looking at the story 'Funnybones' and we are going to be using this to develop our writing skills. We will have a particular focus on the use of conjunctions in our writing. We will be writing reports, writing stories and exploring poetry. We will also be having a spelling focus of suffixes and will be incorporating these into our independent writing.
Maths - The children will be looking at multiplication and division and using this knowledge to help develop problem solving and reasoning skills. Later in the term, we will be developing our skills by learning to find halves and quarters of shapes and quantities. The children will also complete a target maths session each week.
Science - The children will be looking at everyday materials. The children will be exploring the properties of materials through investigative work.
History - This term the children will be learning about history beyond living memory. The focus will be 'The Great Exhibition' where the children will be learning about the importance of historical sources in order to find out about the past.
Computing - The children will continue their computing lessons with Mr Freeman becoming more confident to use the laptops where the children will be saving and retrieving work.
RE - The children will be completing work based on a unit called 'Salvation: What does Easter mean to Christians?'
