Welcome to Year 2
We are looking forward to the weather becoming a bit warmer next term so we can take our learning outside to apply it to the real world. We will begin our SATs prep when we return from the Easter break, SATs will begin at the beginning of May. In Science we will be looking at Plants and observing how plants grown in different environments this will also link to Art. In Geography we will be learning a bit more about Australia, the focus will be on animals. Another interesting topic we will focus on will be about Rosa Parks which will link to our assembly.
Spring round up
It has been an eventful term! We have had some exiting events at school which include World Book Day and Easter Bonnet Parade. World Book Day was especially exciting as we won the best door in KS1. Year 2 have used the school grounds to investigate micro-habits and were astounded with the creatures we found in the pond. In addition to this they enjoyed watching the eggs hatch and develop into ducklings, they identified the life-cycle of ducklings which linked into our science topic. Year 2 have also developed their knowledge on artefacts and how these are used to learn about the past, they were shocked to hear how much moon dust was worth after Neil Armstrong brought it back.
We have been extremely busy this term, working hard on our Christmas play. We are happy that we were able to share our performance with parents on a USB! We have been busy in D&T creating Tudor houses from 1666 to understand how the structure of those houses caused the fire to spread fiercely across London. Next term we have some exciting new topics which we will be learning! In History we will be learning about Marie Curie's legacy and how her findings are used today. In Geography we will continue learning about London and then move on to Australia and Aboriginal people in Australia. We have some exciting things planned for Art which is related to food Art. These will be uploaded soon.
We will continue to focus on our sentences to develop, writing a range of sentences using conjunctions and coordinating conjunctions. We will revisit capital letters and full stops and write simple stories.
We have been working hard in Maths this term revisiting our learning from Year 1. We are now looking forward to starting the Year 2 Maths curriculum we will begin to focus on number magnitude, addition and subtraction.
