Year 2F 2020 - 2021

Mrs Freeman

Welcome to Year 2!

Welcome back after a very long break, we are all so excited to get to know the children of 2F! The last few months have been very strange and we have missed you all, but now it is time to settle in, begin our learning journey together and share our successes! 


What will we be learning in Autumn 1?


I am so excited to share one of my favourite books with you, Prince Cinders by Babette Cole! This is a 'Traditional Story with a Twist', and I know that you are going to enjoy it! We will be exploring the illustrations in this story, making predictions and having a go at retelling the story ourselves! I wonder what you will think of Prince Cinders? Will you recognise any of the events in the story? 

Watch this space for uploads of our most recent English work!


In maths we will be looking at:

  • Place value
  • Money
  • Addition & Subtraction

We will also be doing a weekly 'MAD MINUTES' session, where the children are timed whilst completing their times tables. Ready, steady, get practising!     



In science, we will be learning about ‘Materials’. We will learn scientific vocabulary such as: absorb, waterproof, flexible, properties. We will carry out several investigations to discover which materials are waterproof, which materials are the toughest and this will lead up to us designing our own umbrella. What material will yours be made out of?



Our geography topic this term is, ‘What are Seasons?' We will be furthering our knowledge gained in Year 1 on the seasons spring, summer, autumn and winter. We will go on to learn about seasonal changes, climate and explore topic specific vocabulary such as precipitation, and temperature. Whilst learning about the 4 seasons, we will  look in detail at the map of the United Kingdom and how the weather can vary across the 4 countries. 




Our RE unit this term is, ‘Jesus, friend to everyone’. We will discussing what we already know about Jesus and the importance of His teachings. We will read stories from the Bible such as 'Jesus and the children', to help us gain a better understanding of friendship.


Important reminders 

  • PE kits need to be in school every day
  • Book bags must be in school every day
  • Homework is given out on a Friday and handed in every Thursday.


We will upload any new useful information to our webpage throughout the half term and upload photographs of our fabulous work! 

If you have any questions regarding your child's learning, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Freeman.

Many thanks,

Mrs Freeman
