Year 2W 2020 - 2021

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back Year 2 to our final half term! We have a fun packed half term planned, with lots of learning and fun!

What will we be learning?

Maths

In maths, we will begin by finding frcations of a shape and then solving fractions of amounts by using our understanding of times tables. We will then move onto time, understanding how to tell the time to the quarter of an hour.

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

English

In English, we are really excited to introduce our new book ‘The Pirates Next Door’. This book will have many rhyming words making it extremely enjoyable to read. The children will be making predictions about the book and creating character descriptions.  Towards the end of this half term, we will look at a non-fiction and a poetry unit.

History

In our History topic, we will be discussing the question ‘Who are the Greatest Explorers?’ The children will focus on four explorers (Neil Armstrong, Christopher Columbus, David Livingstone and Sir Edmund Hillary). What did these explorers do?

Science

Our new Science topic is 'Living Things and their Habitat' with a focus on food chains. We will create our own food chains and perform investigations.

RE

In RE we will be focussing on ascension and Pentecost. Our learning will be focussed around many ‘Big Questions’ such as: Where did Jesus ascend to? What happened at Pentecost? How does it feel when we say goodbye?
