2Y1

Welcome back.

 

In 2Y1 we expect superstar behaviour at all times and children will be working hard to earn some exciting new rewards throughout the year. Children will be getting used to looking after their own reward cards on which they can build up points and exchange for excellent prizes.

 

 In Literacy children will be working hard on their phonic skills for reading and writing every day. They will also be completing some extended pieces of writing based on our school topic ‘Crazy Climates’.

 In Maths children will be working on number and place value, shape, space and measure, data handling and problem solving in a variety of ways.

 

Our school topic is Crazy Climates and our focus in Year 2 is the UK weather and environment. Within Science we will be looking at animals and their habitats and how they adapt to their climate. We have some very special visitors from ‘The Animal Roadshow’ coming into school and we will be completing some art and fact finding work based around the visit. We will be completing a class interactive map which we hope to share with parents/carers at the end of the half term.

 

We look forward to many new challenges and lots of fun this half term.

We will continue to work hard on our phonic sounds, sentence construction and word order. We will be reading lots of class books to help improve our vocabulary. We will discuss characters and stories and use drama and roleplay to help develop our ideas.

 

In Maths we will be learning how to multiply and divide numbers. We will be completing data handling activities and presenting our resulTS. We will be working with money and fractions. We will also be improving our skills telling the time.

 

In Science we will be experimenting with sound.

 

We will be working hard to prepare for our Christmas Performance in December.

We will be creating our own mosaic patterns and masks. We will be exploring clay techniques and creating our own designs. We will be looking at Aztec Temples and why they were so important.

 

In Science we will be exploring different materials and thinking about their properties. We will be thinking about how best to conduct experiments.

 

In Maths we will be thinking about Place Value and how numbers are made up. We will be estimating and rounding numbers. We will be experimenting with Mass/weight and thinking about units of measure. We will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. We will be working with money and solving problems. We will be looking at the relationship between multiplication and division.

 

In Literacy we will be working hard to improve our phonic knowledge to help us read with pace and fluency. We will be asking and answering questions to help improve our comprehension skills. We will look at how authors use different types of language to make their stories interesting and exciting.

Spring 2

 

This half term we will be studying aspects of our locality and the things around us.

We will be improving on local Geography knowledge and completing some map work around the local area and making our own 3D map of school. We will think about how we can stay safe when out and about. We will also think about ways we can look after and improve our local area.

We are hoping to link up and share some knowledge of our local area with another school in a contrasting location and gain knowledge of a different locality.

 

We will use the book ‘The Window’ by Jeannie Baker as a focus for our Art work. We will work on our observational drawing skills and develop our scale and accuracy work. We will create a gallery of our work to share with others.

 

We will also be thinking about locally produced foods and how they are made. This will link with our Science work where we will look at plants and what they need to grow.
