St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 4

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



This term the children will be looking at addition and subtraction within 100.  We will be revising the use of place value charts to add and subtract, including a tens exchange.

How you can help at home: 

  • Practise mental recall of number bonds to 10 (1 and 9, 2 and 8), 20 (1 and 19, 2 and 18) and multiples of 10 to 100 (10 and 90, 20 and 80).
  • Remind your children how to write numbers correctly



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

  • Use accurate verb tense and subject/verb agreement e.g. we were NOT we was.
  • Use present and past tense
  • Use commas in lists

We will also recap:

  • Forming correctly sized and orientated lower-case letters, capital letters and digits
  • Use coordinating conjunctions (so, but, and) 
  • Use subordinating conjunctions (when, if, that, because) 

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



In spellings this term, we will be learning about suffixes.



Our enquiry this term is called "What did Brunel do for Great Britain" and focuses on the Historian as our state of being, with Engineer as a supporting state of being. The children will develop an awareness of the past and a significant individual from the past.  



The children will be exploring the unit "Healthy Me" this term in PSHE.  They will explore how they can keep their minds and bodies healthy through making good choices.  



We will be enjoying learning the unit "Zoo Time " using the Charanga music scheme. We will be singing, playing instruments and practicing performing! 



In RE, the children will be studying the units "Sacred Books" and “Easter” 


This term we will be focusing on our ‘Creative Cog’ in PE. We will be comparing movements, creating sequences and celebrating achievements.


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 :)
