St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 2

Welcome to Term 2!


Term 2 is all about building on the positive start to the year in order to show our school values as S.T.A.R.S everyday.


As writers, we will be exploring more adventurous vocabulary and begin to write longer and more complex sentences. Our inspiration will come from the beautifully illustrated book 'Journey', by Aaron Becker, as we invent our own journey stories. We will also be getting in the festive spirit by retelling winter stories.


In reading, we will begin to read more challenging texts as a class. Through our programme, Routes to Reading, we will read with expression, discuss and respond to a wide variety of texts from different genres to help us build our understanding.


As mathematicians, Year 2 will start to explore addition and subtraction in numbers up to 100. We will learn different methods to solve equations, including using concrete resources, number lines and by putting our number facts to good use.


Our Enquiry this term is called 'How can we help?' and focuses on learners becoming Artists and Engineers. The children will plan out their own story board and use modelling skills to create figures and characters. We will then record our models acting out our stories using stop-motion animation.


We will also enjoy being athletes in our PE lessons and musicians in our music lessons.


Keep an eye on the website for photo updates of our learning!
