Year 2W 2020 - 2021

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back! We know the past few months have been strange but we are very pleased to welcome you back to school. The children have settled well into Year 2 and are very eager to learn new things!

What will we be learning?


In maths we will be looking at:

  • Place Value
  • Money 
  • Addition and 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 English, we will be looking at traditional tales with a twist. We will be focussing on the book 'Prince Cinders' by Babette Cole. The children will be trying to recognise any differences between this story and Cinderella. This will lead us onto writing a recount of the story. What can you remember? 


Our geography topic this term is, ‘Seasons'. Firstly, we will learn about the different seasons and the weathers connected with each season. This will then lead us onto looking at the different types of weather within the UK (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales).


In science, we will be learning about ‘Materials’. We will learn scientific vocabulary such as: absorb, properties, waterproof, hypothesis. We will carry out many investigations and will be discovering the best material we can use to absorb water. Which material do you think will be the most absorbent? 


Our RE unit this term is, ‘Jesus: a friend to everyone’. We will be learning about many Bible stories which demonstrate how Jesus was a good friend. We will then explore how we can be a good friend through the teachings of Jesus.   

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.
