Autumn 2

As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatu -llāhi wa-barakātuh.

In shaa Allah you have had a restful SUMMER break and looking forward to RETURNING for THE NEW ACADEMIC YEAR! 
We hope you are ready for the new term with lots of learning, fun and new experiences!

What we are learning this term:


This term, we are looking at the exciting fiction book ‘The Snail and the Whale’ by Julia Donaldson. The Snail and the Whale is a 2003 children’s picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. It won the 2004 Early Years award for the best pre-school book, the 2005 Blue Peter award for Best Book to Read Aloud and the 2007 Giverny award for Best Science Picture Book. The class will be participating in a range of practical activities as well as writing in role, instruction texts, setting description, letter writing 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 in Year 2.


This term, children will be learning about multiplication and division with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables, measurements, temperature and picture graphs.


In Science, children will make comparisons between things that are alive, things that are not alive, and things that were once alive. They will sort and compare animals, plants and non-living things and will create a list of features of living things. Children will notice that living things have offspring which resemble their parents and that they themselves grow into adults which reproduce. Children will order the stages of growth of humans from birth to old age. They will complete their Quest by imagining they are curators of a museum where they will curate an exhibition on living things and design an information board for an exhibit comparing living, not living and never living things.


In Geography, we will be looking at ‘Hot & cold areas, continents & oceans’. In this topic, we will be naming and locating the world’s seven continents and five oceans & making links that we have in the world through people we know and the places we have been.


In DT, we will be exploring moving toys/vehicles that use different mechanism parts such as wheels and axels. Children will build on prior knowledge about sliders and levers to move objects by identifying different mechanism features and incorporating this in their design and planning before making their movable toy/vehicle.


This term, we will be learning about programming using Google Docs and Google Sheets. Once these skills have been mastered, we will be learning about 2Code where children will explore different aspects of coding through bite-sized challenges.

Islamic Studies and Arabic

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 practising new Surahs.


PE is on Thursday with the PE Coach. Please ensure that your child remembers their correct PE kit every Thursday.


Homework will be set every Friday and collected on Tuesday. Homework will consist of Maths, English and Spellings. Children will also be expected to complete homework on platforms such as Google Classroom, IXL, Purple Mash and Bug Club. Your child will be sent home with a reading book every week. Please encourage children to read the book more than once to help familiariase themeselves with the vocabulary used and secure their phonetical knowledge, reading and comprehension.
