Year 2W 2021 - 2022

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back to the Summer term! We have many exciting events planned for the children so keep your eyes peeled. 

What will we be learning?

Maths

In maths, we will start the term by focussing on making money amounts, calculating change and solving word problems that include money. Towards the end of the term, we will focus on partitioning and using this to add and subtract two digit numbers.

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

English

In English, we are focussing on the book 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne. The children will be making predictions, exploring unfamiliar words, ordering the events of the story and answering comprehension questions. Towards the end of this unit the children will be writing their own version of the story by changing the character that the boy meets in the forest. Who will the boy meet in your story?

Geography

In Geography, our topic is 'What are the Seven Wonders of the World?' Throughout this topic, we will consider what a 'wonder' is and what makes a 'wonder'. The children will then create a brochure to try and persuade people to come and visit one of the various ancient and modern wonders.

Science

Our Science topic is 'Plants'. We will look at the life cycle of a plant and how they disperse their seeds. Later in the unit, we will observe the similarities and differences between seeds and bulbs by dissecting them and understanding the name and role of each part.

We have also planted cauliflower and beetroot seeds! We can't wait to see how they grow!

 

RE

In RE, we will be focussing on the topic 'Ascension and Pentecost'. Our learning will be focussed around many ‘Big Questions’ and we will be discussing our views of heaven and what this looks like to us.
