Year 2

Class Teachers: Miss Smith & Miss Gordon

Teaching Assistant: Miss Holland


PE days:  Swallows -Monday and Tuesday - Larks – Monday and Thursday

Amount of time which should be spent reading every day: Children should spend at least 15-20 minutes a day reading. This can be broken up, for example: 10 minutes before dinner time and 10 minutes before bedtime.

Key Spellings/spelling patterns for the half term: Children have received a set of words for this half term and they will be tested on these weekly. These should be practised every day at home for at least 10 minutes.

Key maths facts which your child needs to know this half term:

  • Number bonds to 10, 20 and 100.
  • Multiples of 2, 5 and 10.
  • Multiples of 10 that add to make 100.
  • Counting in steps of 2, 3, 5 and 10 from 0 and from any number, forward and backward.
  • Odd and even numbers.
  • Doubles and halves of numbers to at least 20.
  • Addition and subtraction facts to 20.


    English overview:

    This half term our learning will be based on texts related to our topic ‘London’. We will begin by looking at the story ‘The Great Fire of London’ and retelling the story in sequence, as well as from a character’s perspective. This will also include looking at the story ‘Katie in London’, where children will write a narrative.  In addition, we will be learning about non-chronological reports and linking this to our exploration of historical events. We will also be learning about and using the key features of non-fiction texts.

    Maths overview:

    At the start of the term, we will be revising and building on our knowledge of addition and subtraction. This will include counting on and back mentally and using known number facts to complete calculations. We will also be looking at ways to add and subtract 2-digit numbers. During the term, we will then progress to learning about multiplication and division. This will incorporate doubling and halving and using multiplication and division facts to solve problems. We will also be looking at recognising fractions and finding different fractions of a shape.

    All other subjects

    History: We will be learning about Samuel Pepys and his portrayal of 17th century London.

    DT: We will be creating a set of instructions in order to make bread.

    Science: We will be exploring materials.

    PE: We will be focusing on key skills including agility, balance, co-ordination and speed.

    RE: We will be developing our knowledge of Christianity and key celebrations.
