Year 2W 2019 - 2020

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back and happy New Year!!! The children seem to have had an amazing Christmas and are ready to get back to learning.

 

What will we be learning?

In maths, we will be focussing on drawing and describing both 2D and 3D shapes. How many 2D shapes can you name? We will also be recapping how to record and analyse data. Towards the end of the term, we will begin to look at place and value and fractions.

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

 

We have now moved onto poetry in our English sessions. The children are currently focussing on the nonsense poem ‘On the Ning Nong Nang’. Can you make up any nonsense words?

As the term progresses, we will move onto fantasy stories and to write one of our own.

 

Our history topic this term is, ‘How has our food changed?’, we will explore the types of food that was eaten in the past and how and why this is different to today. What foods do you think people used to eat in the Stuart Times?  

In science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. We will learn scientific vocabulary such as: classify, adapts, living, breathe, air, shelter. The children will explore which animals are best suited for certain habitats and why. Do you think a camel is best suited to living in the desert or the Antarctic?

 

Our RE unit this term is, ‘The Bible: Why is it such a special book?’, We will be recognising that the Bible is made up of a series of books which is split into two parts (the old and new testament). The children will consider why the Bible is a special book for Christians and think about different holy books. Which religion follows the holy book the Quran?

 

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

 

Many thanks,

Year 2 team.
