Term 3

Take a look below at the exciting learning that will be happening in Year 2 this term! 

 

Mathematicians

This term the children will be looking at multiplication, division and fractions. They will be exploring how to use arrays, skip-counting and will be learning their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. 

How you can help at home: 

  • Encourage your child to learn their 2 times table, in this format... 1 x 2 = 2,  2 x 2 = 4,  3 x 2 = 6 (all the way up to 12 x 2 = 24).  Once the children are secure in this, feel free move onto the 5, then the 10 times table.
  • Remind your children how to write numbers correctly

Writers

The children will be working on the following skills in their writing this term: 

  • Using apostrophes for possession (e.g. the polar bear's fur, the cat's tail)
  • Using apostrophes for contractions (do not become don't, can not becomes can't)
  • Using question marks and exclamation marks correctly

We will also recap:

  • Forming correctly sized and orientated lower-case letters, capital letters and digits
  • Use coordinating conjunctions (so, but, and) 
  • Use noun phrases to describe and specify people, places and things e.g. ugly dragon/old castle/beautiful butterfly
  • Use subordinating conjunctions (when, if, that, because) 
  • Write about more than one idea, group related information and write coherently
