Year 2 will be finishing off the year with the topic of Mexico. Our topic will combine history and geography and will allow us to find out about many aspects of both ancient and modern Mexico.
In maths this term, our skills focus will be to recall the 4 times table, doubles to 20 and near doubles. We will also review all times tables learnt this year and number bonds to 20.
In English, we will be covering various text types and developing our skills as writers. Reading continues to play an important role in our learning and we hope to broaden the children's experience of authors and genres.
Our science for the first half term is living things and their habitats and after half term we will be learning about animals including humans. We will have a DT day where the children will be creating their own healthy snack and an art day, in which the children will create collage artwork.
*Year 2 will have PE every Monday and Wednesday (please make sure kit is named).
*Year 2 will bring homework home on a Friday that will be due back by Wednesday.
*Spelling tests will take place on Fridays.
*In Year 2 children are expected to read every day and record this in their planner. This will help to develop the children’s fluency and their understanding. Children will collect a reader chain every week if they read 4 times or more.
*Children should be aiming to quiz once a week on Accelerated Reader. This provides them with vital skills and the opportunity to earn in-school rewards!
