Miss Wilkinson

Welcome back to the final term of Year 2! We have a very exciting term planned, with lots of great activities and learning ahead. We will be enjoying our last trip of Year 2 at Springfield Park. I think we are all ready now to share our new learning about bees and pollination!


In Maths, we will revisit place value, placing numbers on a number line, fractions, time and solve reasoning questions. We will continue with our ‘mad minutes’ weekly challenges, and hopefully you will be awarded with your next Mad Minutes certificate!

In English, we are going to be reading ‘The Pirates Next Door’, by Jonny Duddle. Have you ever read a pirate book? I wonder what will happen? We will spend time exploring the illustrations, asking questions about the characters, writing our own descriptions and end with writing our very own pirate story! I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

It is time to do History this half term, and we will be studying past and present explorers. Have you ever heard of Christopher Columbus? I wonder what qualities you need to be an explorer. I am excited to learn more about this, and see if maybe you could ever be an explorer!





Our Science topic is ‘Bees and Pollination’, which we already know lots about from our school trip. We will look closely at the life cycle of a bee and study their purpose in the world. What is an eco-system? We will learn lots of new scientific vocabulary like this!



In RE, we will be focussing on the topic 'Why is the Church a special place to Christians?''. Our learning will be focussed around many ‘Big Questions’ and we will be deveopling the children understanding of what happens in church and why.

· Book bags must be in school every day
