Through a series of exciting and thought-provoking lessons, Year 2 will explore the roles of some of our community and how they impact on our lives. We will infer the importance of historical figures such as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, and we will have some exciting visits from people who perform important tasks in our local and national community.
This half term Year 2 will be exploring the fascinating world of people in our community who help us. Real life superheroes could be anyone in schools, hospitals, policing, firefighting or military who help us to be safe and happy.
Over the next few weeks, we will be reading some stories about people who help others and practising our sentence composition and sequencing events, as well as focusing on our high level descriptive language and exciting varied vocabulary
In maths, we will be continuing our learning on finding the value of any digit in larger numbers, and using models and images to represent different calculations. We will be collecting and analysing data and also focusing on time and measurement. Times
Tables is becoming a figure of Year 2 Maths as we move on through the year and we are hoping to learn our 2x 5x and 10x tables off by heart. Children should make regular use of Mathletics online and focus on times tables learning as much as possible at home.
In RE, we will be looking at Understanding Christianity in more depth. Focusing on the upcoming Christingle and Christmas celebrations and thinking about Christian teachings of love, integrity and faith in God. Pupils will work on Bible stories and take part in faith based assemblies.
