Autumn Term 2023
Welcome back to the new academic year!
We are looking forward to getting to know you and working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. We hope that your child enjoys the new challenges and experiences that Year 2 has to offer!
Year 2 is an important year for learning. The children are expected to become more independent readers, writers and mathematicians as the year advances. The Year 2 curriculum builds upon and extends the experiences that children have had in Year 1 and they will continue to learn through exciting topics so that they remain motivated, enthused and eager learners.
Our topic in Geography is My World and Me.
We will be finding out about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world and drawing simple map and keys. We will be compare cities in the UK and Ecuador and finding out where different animals live in the world.
In Science, we will be looking at Materials.
We will be:
Identifying and comparing the suitability of a variety of everyday materials, including wood, metal, plastic, brick, rock, paper and cardboard for particular uses.
Finding out how the shapes of solid objects made from some materials can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching.
Summer Term 2023
We have another very busy term ahead of us in Year 2. Summer term is always exciting, with hopefully warmer weather to help us enjoy it!
During the first half term in Maths and English we will be preparing for the Key Stage 1 SATs in May.
