What we are learning this Year/Term
Year 2 is an important year, it is a time to consolidate learning so far, learn new skills and get ready for the end of KS1 SATs.
In English we are looking at the world’s favourite author Roald Dahl! The Magic Finger is a story about a girl who loses her temper and points her magic with disastrous results!
The children will write a persuasive letter, diary entry and a sequel to the story.
This term, we are learning how to count money and investigating the properties of 2D and 3D shapes! Also, we will be solving word problems!
In Science, we will be looking at Feeding and Exercise. This topic covers what animals and humans need to survive, food chains and different types of animals. The children will complete an experiment and make predictions about what will happen next.
This term in Art, the children will learn about tone and colour by shading and colouring their drawings. We are hoping to create an outstanding piece of artwork using collage at the end of the topic.
In History, the children will be looking at important figures in history. They will be looking at how Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole have made a difference to society.
PSHE-Going for Goals
In PSHE, the children will be setting goals for themselves and explaining how they will be sticking to them when it is difficult. By the end of the topic, they will be able to give advice to others on how to set goals and reach them.
