Term 3

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 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 to 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 as writers this term: 

  • Using question marks and exclamation marks correctly
  • Using because to join two clauses together e.g. ‘The brown cat was sleeping on the soft mat because he was feeling extremely tired.’

 

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
  • Write about more than one idea, group related information and write coherently 

 

How you can help at home: 

  • Practise spelling Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words (Galaxy Words)
  • Continue to read regularly with your children, checking their understanding of what they have read, using the questions in their reading records to guide you.
  • Practise letter formation and presentation: https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/skyWriter/index.html

 

Enquiry

Our enquiry this term is called "What is home?" and focuses on the Scientist state of being, with Geographer as a supporting state of being. The children will explore different habitats from around the world and will consider why certain animals live in certain places.

 

Philosophers

We will be exploring the unit "Dreams and Goals" this term in PSHE.  They will explore how they can work collaboratively, and how it feels to be part of a team.

 

Musicians

We will be enjoying learning the unit "water” using the ‘Bristol Plays Music’ scheme. We will be singing, playing instruments and practicing performing! 

 

Athletes

In ‘real PE’ we will be working on balances by focusing on the ‘cognitive cog’ where we will work on the skills of:

    • explaining what I am doing well and begin to identify areas for improvement.
    • recognising similarities and differences in performance.
    • explaining why someone is working or performing well.
    • understanding and following simple rules.
    •  

In ‘real gym’ we will be exploring balance, travel, flight and rotation.

 

As you can see, it's going to be another busy term for Year 2! Keep an eye on the website for regular updates and photos of the children's learning :)
