What are we learning this half-term?
In english and maths we will be working hard to catch-up on lots of key skills that will help us succeed in Year 2. These include sentence development and writing for different purposes: factual, fictional and descriptive. In maths we'll be learning about place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and money.
In science, we will begin by looking at animals including humans. We'll observe the offspring of animals and investigate what animals need to survive. We'll also learn about the importance of exercise and a healthy diet.
In history, we will be developing the skill of asking questions as well as viewing artefacts and sources. As part of our Victorian topic we'll be learning about the Wright Brothers and also investigating Victorian toys and games just in time for Christmas. We will link this learning to geography by mapping the flights across the world that Amelia Earhart took. Our topic work will also link closely to STEM investigations and we may even become inventors ourselves!
In PE we'll begin by doing some athletics work followed by gymnastics. We'll also be doing lots of work to help you settle in to Year 2. These are just a few of the exciting things happening in Year 2 this term; we're going to have a great time!

Other Useful Information
We will be sending reading books home in a plastic bookbag to help us keep the books safe. Please bring the bookbag to school daily. We will be changing reading books on a Monday and a Friday. We are still collecting points for out reading challenge so make sure an adult signs your reading diary each time you read at home.
Each week we will have ‘Move it Monday’. On this day, you will wear your PE kit to school. PE kit is a plain white round neck t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and pumps/trainers.
