Year 2

Class Teacher: Miss Manoy

LSA: Miss McDonnell

Term Two Monday 30th October- Wednesday 20th December

Our value this term is Respect


This term our enquiry will be: What helps living things grow and thrive?



In English, we are learning how to write instructions. We will then be looking at the poem The Owl and the Pussycat and using it as inspiration for our own poems. 


We are starting the term with an Addition and Subtraction unit. We will be learning lots of efficient strategies to help us calculate answers quickly. After this, we will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes.


In RE we will be answering the questions: Where do we belong? How do people show that they belong to a religious community?


Our PSHE topic this term is Celebrating Difference.

Home learning

Reading: Children will get two new home reading books each week. These match the RWI level that your child is currently working at. It is very important that your child reads regularly at home to develop fluency.  Every child should aim to read for at least 10 minutes, 5 times a week. 

Spelling: We follow the Spelling Shed programme.  Your child has a spelling book which will have new spelling stuck in each week.  Their Spelling Shed login is in their reading record book. They are expected to complete games at home.  Please see the file below for the overview of spellings for this term.

Maths: All children have Numbots passwords in their Reading Record. Please encourage your child to go on numbots regularly to develop quick recall of facts.
