Year 2

Summer Term 2018

During the Summer Term, Year 2 will be carrying out some marvellous learning, whilst gearing up for their SATs which are coming up soon!

In English, we will be exploring different pieces of writing, namely reports, descriptions, recounts and retells.  By the end of the term, the children will independently produce a report as well as a recount of a trip. Throughout this term further focus will be placed on the spelling of common exception words as well as grammar rules including capital letters, full stops, expanded noun phrases, simple conjunctions and tenses.

In Maths, we will begin the half-term by looking at 2D and 3D shapes. The children will learn how to sort these shapes as well as describe their different properties, including lines of symmetry.  We will then move on to recognising, finding, naming and writing the following fractions: 1/3, ¼, 2/4, ¾, ½. We will also be recognising equivalent fractions as well as recalling doubles and halves up to 20. To end the term we will revisit addition and subtraction problems, including inverse calculations.

In ICB, we will look at lives of significant historical figures including Tim Peake, Florence Nightingale, William Shakespeare, Christopher Columbus and Charles Darwin. This term RE will be all about different places of worship. We will be looking at Mosques, Synagogues, Churches, Temples and Mandirs.

In Science, the children will be learning all about living things including the different habitats they live in as well as what they do to survive in the wild. Apart from this we will be carrying out various experiments that will challenge the children to think outside the box!

Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please provide your child with the appropriate clothing and footwear.
