Spring Term 2019

 We hope you have all had a relaxing Christmas break and are ready to start our new term!

English

Term 3

In term 3 our English Key Text is ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We will be writing character descriptions and settings. We will create instructions to make a marvellous medicine and hope to create some amazing poems about Grandma Cranky.

Term 4

During term 4 we will be looking at a variety of texts linked with our topic of ‘Century of Bad Luck.’ We will be creating our own non chronological reports, diary entries and live news reports.

Maths

We will be learning lots of new exciting skills in the upcoming terms 3 and 4. We will begin the term learning how to share and divide and how to identify and use the inverse operations. Then we will be learning about statistics, fractions and 2D and 3D shapes, especially the differences between their properties. Finally we will finish of the term with some length and height and plenty of revision.

 Science

During the next 2 terms we will be learning all about everyday materials. In particular, we will be looking at what products are made from and why those particular materials have been chosen to be used. We will be conducting lots of experiments to help us understand the different prosperities materials have.

English in Year Two

Reading in Year Two

Similar to Year 1, children will be listened to on a weekly basis in a guided reading group. This guided reading session is timetabled to enable the children access a different English based activity everyday e.g. a comprehension activity or a  Spelling, Punctuation and/or Grammar (SPaG) related piece of work.

Continuing from Year 1, the children are taught to read accurately by blending the sounds in words that contain the graphemes taught so far, especially the alternative sounds for graphemes. By the end of Year 2, a child should be able to read books written at an age-appropriate interest level with accuracy. They should also be able to read at a speed that is sufficient for a child to focus on understanding what is read rather than sounding out individual words.

Writing and SPaG in Year Two

Throughout Year 2, children will have the opportunity to learn and develop their key skills of writing. By the end of Year 2 we would like all children to spell words in a phonetically plausible way, even if sometimes it is incorrect. They should be able to write down ideas that have been composed orally and letters should be orientated correctly. They should be able to use age-appropriate vocabulary, grammar and punctuation concepts correctly.

Maths in Year Two

 Our curriculum map outlines our maths learning throughout the year. In regards to number, children will be taught to compare and order numbers from 0 up to 100 and to use place value and number facts to solve problems. 

In measures, children will be encouraged to solve simple problems in a practical context involving addition and subtraction of money including giving change. 

In fractions they will learn how to recognise, find, name and write fractions 1/4, 1/3, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape and set of objects or quantity.

In multiplication and division they will recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 times table including recognising odd and even numbers. They will also solve problems involving multiplication and division.
