Learning in Year 2

This year, we will be building on our knowledge from Year 1 and exploring many new and interesting things!

During the Autumn term, we will be learning all about the world, its oceans and travelling back in time to find out more about the Titanic! In Science, we will be discovering more about the life cycle through the Animals Including Humans unit. In Maths, we will develop our understanding of number and place value, addition and subtraction and money. In English, we will be reading lots of new texts including fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

In the Spring term, we will be delving into our ‘Best of Britain’ unit of work and discovering how British history has impacted our lives today. In Science, we will be learning about living things and their habitats. In Maths, we will revisit shape, fractions and multiplication and division. In English, we will be writing a range of text types including; poems, instructions and diaries.

In the Summer term, we will be exploring the 1800s and learning all about what life was like for Victorian children! In Science, we will be growing plants from seeds and identifying different uses of everyday materials.  In Maths, we will practise measuring length and height, and learning to tell the time. In English, we will continue to develop our grammar and reading skills in readiness for Year 3.

Our learning in RE will continue to focus on developing our relationship with God through prayer and learning more about Jesus’ life.
