St Anne's Infants' School


Reach for the Stars

Term 4

Welcome back Year 2. We hope you had a lovely holiday. There is lots going on in term 4!


As writers, we will be focusing on a new genre, and writing a fictional comic about a day in the life of a passenger travelling on the SS Great Britain. This will include a range of different grammatical features and some factual knowledge from our Enquiry. Our inspiration will come from the brilliant history book 'A Day in the Life of a Caveman, a Queen and Everything in Between' by Mike Barfield and Jess Bradley. 


In reading, we will continue 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. This will include poetry, stories and fact-files.


As mathematicians, Year 2 will focus on wider maths, learning about shape and fractions. We will continue to revisit counting in 2's, 5's and 10's as well as addition and subtraction, so any extra practice at home would be great!


Our Enquiry this term is called 'What did Brunel do for Great Britain?' and focuses on learners becoming Historians and Engineers. The children will learn about what it means to be an Engineer, in particular looking at the work of Brunel and how significant engineers of the past continue to influence our lives . To introduce the Enquiry we will be visiting the Clifton Suspension Bridge to look at the bridge structure and learn how to build our own model bridges.


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