What we are learning this Term



This term, we are focussing on an exciting non-fiction book called the ‘The Emperor’s Egg’ by Martin Jenkins. The Emperor’s Egg is a 2015 award winning children’s picture book written by Martin Jenkins and illustrated by Jane Chapman. This beautifully illustrated narrative information book tells the story of nature’s most devoted emperor penguin whilst capturing the landscape and chills of the Antarctic. It introduces children to a part of the world and a species of animals which they are not familiar with. This story book has been nominated an excellent guide for children through one of the wonders of nature. Children in Year 2 will be participating in a range of practical activities as well as writing in role, setting descriptions, report writing, life cycles and poetry.


This term, children will continue working on Phase 5 and learning about the rules of Spelling using a range of suffixes and learning new common exception words.


This term, children will be consolidating their knowledge on multiplication and division with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and exploring measurements, temperature and picture graphs.


In science, we will be looking at ‘Feeding and Exercise’. Year 2 will explore the importance of exercise, eating the right amounts of different types of food and hygiene. They will have found out about and described the basic needs of animals, including humans, for survival (water, food and air) and will have considered what humans need to live. Children will have identified different foods and have classified some of the foods that humans eat by plant or animal origins. We will be looking at how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals, using the idea of a simple food chain, and identify and name different sources of food. They will use the ideas about feeding and exercise to learn about ways we need to look after ourselves to stay healthy. Working scientifically, Year 2 will use observable features and research to identify and classify foods into those of plant or animal origin. They will ask questions and use their observations and ideas to suggest answers to their quest questions.


In Geography, we will be looking at a comparative study focussing on ‘The United Kingdom and Hong Kong’. In this topic, we will be locating the UK and HK on the world map as well as comparing the similarities and differences of physical and human geography in the UK and HK islands.


In Art, we are looking at water art – seascapes. Children will explore different artists who have used wood block painting to create various seascapes and oceanscapes around the world. We will then re-create our own exciting and vibrant artwork using a range of drawing and painting media, e.g., soft, and hard pencils, oil pastels, water soluble pastels, water coloured paint.  


In computing, we will be learning about the introductory programming language ‘Scratch Jr’ by creating fun and exciting interactive stories and games. Year 2 will have the opportunity to plan and program their very own exciting story using a range of different characters, backgrounds and simple narratives.


Year 2 will be taught Islamic Studies and Arabic by Ustadh Kasujja twice a week. The children will learn about the importance of different Islamic values, how best to apply these in everyday life, Muslim identity in addition to learning and practicing new Surahs.



PE is on Wednesday and Thursday. The children will be focusing on Multi-Skills/Moving in different ways. Please make sure that your child remembers their PE kit.
