Year 2W 2019 - 2020

Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back after half term! 

The children have arrived back to school with a brilliant attitude and are ready to learn.

 

What will we be learning?

In maths, we will be foussing on telling the time. Can you tell me what time it is now? We will also be recapping addition and subtraction and the methods you can use to work out the calculations. Towards the end of the term, we begin to look at recording and analyising data.  

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 non-fiction writing in our English lessons. The children have recently read the story 'John Patrick Norman Mchennessy' and will be writing postcards and letters. How do you start and end a letter? 

As the term progresses, we will focus on information texts and instructions exploring how these should be written and structured. 

 

Our Geography topic this term is 'Where Does Our Food Come From?, we will be learning about the different countries our foods come from. We will also look at Fairtrade and how our food is made. How do you think chocolate is made? 

In science, we will be learning about Materials and their Properties. We will use scientific vocabulary such as; opaque, transparent, rigid, flexible, hard, soft, bendy, waterproof. We will carry out experiements to test materials and decide which materials are best for different purposes. Would you wear a paper coat?

 

Our RE unit this half term is ' Why was the birth of Jesus such good news?'. We will be reflecting on our own good news and how we share this. We will remind ourselves of the Nativity story and respond to this through role play and drama. How did God send good news?

 

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.
