Summer 1

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

In shaa Allah you have had a restful half term and are looking forward to returning for Summer 1!
We hope you are ready for the new term with lots of learning, fun and EXCITING experiences!

What we are learning this term:


This term, we are focussing on an exciting fiction book called ‘Ossiri and the Bala Mengro’.  Ossiri and the Bala Mengro is a 2016 award winning children’s picture book written by Richard O’Neill and illustrated by Hannah Tolson.  This beautifully illustrated tale gives voice to a lesser-known way of life captured within the Romani travelling community. The story introduces children to a world of ambition, optimism and responsibility. It also lends itself to enhancing empathy amongst readers which stretches beyond traditional folk tales. The class will be participating in a range of practical activities as well as writing in role, setting description, persuasive letters and poetry.


This term, children will continue working on Phase 5/ 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 continue consolidating their learning about multiplication and division with the 2, 5 and 10 times tables and explore 2D and 3D shapes, fractions, time and volume.


In science, we are looking at ‘Growing Plants’. Year 2 will explore how seeds and bulbs grow into mature plants as well as investigate what plants need to grow (water, light and a suitable temperature to grow and stay healthy). They will discover where seeds come from by investigating fruits and seeds in their local environment through careful observation and recognise how some plants are able to grow from bulbs. Children will also have the opportunity to plant a variety of seeds, observe and describe its growth.


In Geography, we will be looking at simple ‘fieldwork’ to study the geography of our school, surrounding and local environment. Children will explore the main features of a map, aerial views and use the four compass points to navigate around their local environment. They will create simple 3D maps of their local surroundings using directional language.


In DT, we will be exploring a range of fruits as part of ‘Food Technology’. Children will understand where a range of fruit and vegetables come from e.g. farmed or grown at home. They will have the opportunity to select a range of fruit and vegetables according to their characteristics e.g. colour, texture and taste to create a chosen product (fruit smoothies).


In computing, we will be using digital art to create fun and exciting interactive digital books. We will be recreating different stories that we already know, replacing characters and making up our own narratives. Year 2 will explore different features on digital art to create book covers, add speech, text and illustrations to accompany their stories.

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.
