Welcome to Year 2!
Miss Whitehead, Miss Renshaw work in our Year 2 class.
Continuing our theme of 'Buried Treasure' Year 2 have got another exciting half term planned learning all about Explorers and Faraway Places. In English we will be looking mainly at non-fiction texts such as lists, instructions, information posters, diaries and biographies. In Maths for the first few weeks we will be thinking about all the skills a good explorer might need with a key focus on money! Do you know the value of different coins? Can you add money? Can you subtract money? Can you make the same amount with different coins? Can you find the total cost for different things? Could you give someone change if they needed it? Could you find the difference between 2 amounts? And later on in the term we will look again at multiplication and division skills. In our Theme lessons we will consider that long before the internet people had only one way to discover new facts … to go out and explore for themselves! What helped explorers find their way? Who were the greatest explorers? What were they looking for? What did they find? and How did they get there? this includes our Science focus of 'Forces'. Alongside all this we will of course be getting ready for our fantastic Christmas Fairs, Markets, Shows all of which I hope you will be able to attend.
