Key Times 

For Year 2, the school day will begin at 8.40, and end at 3.30.   


What are we learning? 


The texts that we will be focusing on this term are “Emily Brown and the THING” by Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton, “The Very Smart Pea and the Princess to be” by Mini Grey, and “Meerkat Mail” by Emily Gravett.  

Throughout the term students will be developing expression through writing, engage with different forms and styles of poetry, recount events through letters and postcards, as well as write non-chronological reports. 


Initially in Maths we will begin looking at fractions. This will involve recognising and finding halves, thirds and quarters. We will also be looking at counting in fractions. After this, we will move on to time. In our Time unit, we will be revisiting telling the time to the hour and half past the hour. We will then look at telling the time to quarter of an hour and telling the time to 5 minutes. We will complete the unit by working on reasoning problems. 


In Science we are studying Living Things and Their Habitats. We will be looking at things that are alive, dead or has never been alive. We will also be looking at animals in the local environment and the different types of habitats. 


We will be exploring Africa this term, with a special focus on Kenya. We will be identifying human features and physical features of Kenya as well as the population patterns. 


This half term we will be learning about different explorers through history. Our focus will be on Marco Polo, Pedro Alonso Nino, Cristopher Columbus, Francis Drake and Diego. We will be looking at the positive and negative impacts of each. 


In RE we will be exploring Jewish beliefs surrounding Chanukah, looking at the story behind the celebration and why it is special for Jewish people.  


In Computing this term we will be focusing on coding. We will be revisiting algorithms and implementing this as programs on digital devices. We will also create and debug simple programs. 


In Art this half term our topic is sculpture. Our focus artist this term will be Joan Miro. We will use this artist’s work to inspire our own work to create our own sculptures made from different geometric shapes. 


This term in DT we are learning about joining and strengthening techniques with a focus on playground structures. Children will assess and compare existing structures and discuss the advantages/ disadvantages of the equipment including whether they are suitably strong enough to support children and how they remain in place. Children will then create their own mini model playground, utilising joining techniques such as L Brace, Triangulation or Buttress.    


This half term, our focus will be on keeping ourselves safe. We will begin the term by looking how we can keep ourselves safe at home, then we will begin looking at safety the wider world. We will explore how we can identify and deal with emergencies. 


In PE we will be starting our unit on Athletics. We will be looking at how speed is affected by distance, learning to run with increasing speed and navigate through obstacles. 


In Music we will be listening to what music sounds like, feels like and looks like. This will involve a focus on pitch. We will be learning how to read melodies on a stave and we will build up to a performance at the end of the term. 



How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 15 - minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4. Year 2s focus tables are 2, 5 and 10.  

Additionally, we are asking all pupils to practice accurately forming digits from 0 – 9, lowercase and uppercase letters using cursive handwriting.  

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Halai or Mr Hall.
