Mrs Freeman

Welcome to Year 2! We are all so excited to begin our new year, with a new class! 

Let's have a look what we will be learning this half term.

What will we be learning?

Maths

In maths we will be furthering our knowledge and skills in:

  • Place value on a number line
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Measures

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 'Prince Cinders', by Babette Cole

We will;

  • Look closely at the illustrations, and make inferences 
  • Write character and setting descriptions
  • Write in the role of the characters
  • Ask and answer questions
  • Retell the story
  • Innovate the story

We will also explore the topic of 'Weather' and create a non-chronological report, which links to our geography topic.

Geography

In geography, we are going to be learning about 'Seasons'. We will study the following questions;

  • Can we observe the weather?
  • What have we observed about the weather?
  • Why does weather change?
  • What are the seasons?
  • What can we find out about the weather in different countries?

We will end with a BIG FINISH - WINTER WONDERLAND!

Science

Our Science topic is 'Everyday Materials'. We will be building on our learning from Year 1, learning more about materials, their properties and what they are best used for. In this unit we will:

  • Explore different materials, touching and describing them using new words 
  • Carry out experiments, such as testing which materials are waterproof
  • Learn more about man-made and natural materials
  • Learn scientific vocabulary such as; transparent, opaque, smooth, rough, investigate, predict
  •                                                                          materials.png

 

RE

In RE, we will be focussing on the topic 'Jesus, friend to everyone'. Our learning will be focussed around ‘Big Questions’ such as;

  • What is a miracle?
  • Why are Bible stories important?
  • Why did Jesus welcome everyone?
  • I wonder how it felt to meet Jesus?
  • What did Jesus want us to learn from his behaviour?
  • What do these stories reveal about Jesus?
