Year 2

Welcome to Year 2.

Reading Challenge Books

Welcome to Year 2 for Summer 2 term everyone!

Dear Parents,

We hope you’ve had a wonderful half term and enjoyed the sunshine and being able to see more of your friends and family. We have loved having the children back and can’t believe this is our last term together. We are so excited to be able to go on a trip this half term to the exciting and wonderful Lego Land.


This term in English, we will begin looking at a non-fiction structure of writing and learning how to write instructions on how to play hopscotch and how to make a Victoria sponge. The children will learn about imperatives and the difference between commands and sentences. The children will then start a narrative unit to support the children in developing their figurative and descriptive language. We will be using the text ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’, the story of a fox who outwits his farmer neighbours to steal their food from right under their noses. We will also be looking at retelling and innovating the story ‘Ravi’s Roar’, the story of Ravi and his raging temper.


In Year 2 we have PE on Monday and Wednesday. The children will need to bring their PE kits on the first day back of school and leave them until the half term holidays, this will mean that they will always have their PE kits in school. Please make sure your children have their full PE kit including trainers, school top and shorts. If it is cold, the children can still bring in blue tracksuit bottoms to wear and a blue jumper.


This term we are beginning by looking at time. Children will learn to tell the time to 5 minute intervals and this is something you can really help with at home. We will then move onto learning about mass, capacity and temperature for the final weeks of the term. Children will measure and compare the mass and capacity of objects and learn to read the temperature. There will then be focus on problem solving. It is essential that children are practicing their fluency of numbers bonds and timetables regularly. Please take the time to help your child by practicing at home. If you are unsure of what type of games to use to make this learning time more engaging, come and speak to us, so we can best support you and your child. Science This half term in science we will be learning about materials. Children will identify and name different materials, group materials based on their properties and explain why objects are made from different materials. We will also plan an investigation about a suitable material to build a bridge.


In geography, we will be learning all about Kenya. We will learn its location and climate and about its many different landmarks. We will learn about the physical and human features of Kenya. We will compare life in Nairobi with life in London and end the term looking at nomadic life.


In history, we will be learning about the evolution of games. We will learn about the games Victorian children used to play and do a case study lesson on Monopoly. We will look at how the world’s most popular game, football, has developed over years before looking at the impact of digital games on how children play.


In RE this half term children will be learning about belonging and how Christians show they belong they. We will consider what belonging means, understand how Christians treat one another and think about what it means to belong to someone else.
