Welcome to Year 2!

 

How have we got to summer 2 already! This year seems to have flown by. In our last term as year 2 children, we will continue to work hard and get ready for year 3. We will enjoy Sports Day and fingers crossed for some lovely weather.

 Summer 2 2024 

 English

In English, we will continue to practise using capital letters and the correct punctuation correctly. We will also be focussing on improving our writing by using adjectives, adverbs and similes. We will be continuing to learn different spelling rules and using these words in our writing. The genres we will be looking at are character descriptions, instructions and poetry.

 

 

 

Maths

In maths we will be continuing to tell the time. We will also be embedding our knowledge of the 2, 5, and 10 times tables. Please could you help your child at home to have a quick recall of these facts. We will also be looking at how to measure temperature, length and capacity.

History

Our History lessons will be focussing on the question ‘What is a Monarch?’ The children will look at the life of Queen Elizabeth II and what the role of a Monarch was. They will look at how the Queen’s seventy year reign was celebrated around the world and the legacy Queen Elizabeth II left behind.

 

  

 

Science

In Science we will be observing different plants and seeing how they grow. We will also see which plants we can eat!

DT

There will be excitement in DT where the children will be designing and making their own chocolate bars! They will test out different flavours and see what combinations they want to put together.

RE

In RE the children will be looking at different communities and how people within the Christian, Jewish and Humanist celebrate special occasions.

Music

In music the children will know that the word pitch is used to describe high and low sounds. They will match the pitch, tempo   and dynamics of a piece of music accurately.

Computing

In computing the children will learn how to copy, cut and paste in a spreadsheet. They will also know how to create a table of data on spreadsheet.

S.M.S.C and P.S.H.E

We will be continuing with my happy mind and learning how we can use our brain to make the right choices and celebrate and appreciate other people.

P.E. 

In our indoor PE sessions, we will learn yoga and work on different poses and bending, stretching and reaching techniques

In our outdoor PE lessons we will be learning different skills in athletics to get ready for sports day.
