Reach for the Stars

Term 5

Take a look below at the exciting learning that will be happening in Year 2 in Term 5! 



This term the children will be looking at the link between multiplication and division. We will be learning how to divide by sharing, divide by grouping and how what we know about our 2, 5 and 10 times tables can really help us. 

How you can help at home: 

  • Practise counting in twos, fives and tens 
  • Rehearse the 2, 5 and 10 times tables 
  • Always remind your children how to write numbers correctly



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

  • Use adverbs to describe an action (e.g. walk quickly)
  • Exploring and using the features of writing needed to write a narrative (story)

We will also recap:

  • Forming correctly sized and orientated lower-case letters, capital letters and digits- ALWAYS starting at the top
  • Use noun phrases 
  • Use the consistent tense throughout a piece of writing 

How you can help at home: 

  • Continue to practise spelling Year 1 and Year 2 common exception words (Galaxy Words)
  • Continue to read regularly with your children



Our enquiry this term is called "What plants grow near me" and focuses on the Scientist as our state of being, with Geographer as a supporting state of being. The children will test how different conditions can affect how a plant grows, and will plant and care for their very own courgette!



The children will be exploring the unit "Relationships" this term in PSHE. They will identify some of the things that cause conflict between me and my friends. They will learn how to use positive problem-solving techniques to resolve conflicts with their peers, with greater independence.



The children’s learning will be based around the ‘Friendship Song’. They will explore how to find the pulse of a piece of music and will clap rhythms whilst marching! They will also focus recognising and naming some of the instruments they can hear. 

Clap rhythms (long and short sounds while marching to the pulse.



This term we will continue to focus on our ‘Creative Cog’ in PE. We will be comparing movements, creating sequences and celebrating achievements. We’ll then move onto our ‘Physical’ cog where we’ll begin putting together longer and more challenging sequences of movements. 

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