Term 6

Term 6

We've reached the final term of our time together at St. Anne's Infants' School.  Can you believe it? 

 

This term, a lot of our focus will be on celebrating the children's time in Key Stage One and preparing them for their transition to Year 3. We look forward to sharing with you our 'Leavers' Assembly' towards the end of the term, and can't wait for our Puxton Park and pizza treat as our end of year celebration!  More information to follow soon :) 

 

Take a look below at the exciting learning that will be happening in Year 2 in Term 6! 

 

Mathematicians

This term the children will be focussing on the following skills: 

  • Weight, capacity, time and money.
  • Subtracting and adding two digit numbers, including when needing to exchange ten. 
  • Multiplication and division skills in problem solving and reasoning tasks, to really get us thinking and talking in maths! 

 

How you can help at home: 

  • Practise counting in twos, fives and tens 
  • Rehearse the 2, 5 and 10 times tables 
  • Making some simple mental calculations
  • Always remind your children how to write numbers correctly
  • Practise paying with coins and notes and receiving the correct change 

 

ICT money games

 

Writers

The children will be focusing 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)- beginning/ middle/ end
  • Write about more than one idea and group related information 

We will also continue to look for:

  • 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

 

Enquiry

We will be completing two enquiries this term "How will we get around in the future?" and "How are schools the same?" In the first we will be Geographers and Engineers and explore how we might travel around the world in the future. We will look at human and physical features and use a compass to write directions. In the second we will be Artists and Geographers. We will compare life in a school in the UK to a school in Tanzania. We will also explore a range of artists from Tanzania. 

 

Philosopher 

As philosopher's the children will be exploring the unit "Changing Me" this term in PSHE. They will identify some of the things that change as they get older. They will learn how to prepare themselves for their next stage in their learning journey.

 

PE

This term we will continue to focus on our ‘Fitness Cog’ in PE, where we’ll begin to focus on challenging our speed and agility. 
 

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 :)
