Year 2

Year 2 is a very important and busy final year in Key Stage 1. We continue to add to and build upon the progress that the children have made in Reception and Year 1 and we help prepare the children for life in Key Stage 2 and the Juniors.

Autumn Term 2016

Our theme this term is 'Dinosaurs'. Within this topic the children will develop their knowledge of dinosaurs and apply this in a range of activities that will include creating games, quizzes, drawing and making model dinosaurs. During this term we will visit 'All Things Wild'.

The daily maths teaching will be based upon Adapt Maths. Coverage this term will include place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Our English lessons will focus on character description, recount and non-chronological reports. Within these units we will look at structure, spelling, punctuation, grammar and developing the use of descriptive vocabulary. We will also continue with a daily Letters and Sounds session and the children will read in class every week.

The children will use Tux Paint in Computing to produce a dinosaur picture. They will develop their skills in ICT to log on/off, use icons, undo, toolbar, pencil point, brush tool, palette, flood fill, straight line tool and stamp.

In PE we will be creating a gymnastic sequence on floor, mats and apparatus by linking a roll, a balance, a jump and travel.

PSHE sessions will focus on 'New Beginnings' which looks at how to solve problems. It explores feelings within the context of relationships with peers. The theme aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings and empathy.

We will have weekly sessions in Forest School where we will continue to work on our problem solving skills.

Spring Term 2017

Our topic this term is 'Spain'. At the start of the topic we will start by looking at the Spanish artist Joan Miro. We will look at Miro's art and sculptures and then the children will have a go at making their own sculpture out of clay ready for our Art and Curriculum evening in February. Also in this topic we will be learning about where Spain is on the map, Spanish festivals, food and sport.

The daily Maths teaching this term will be based upon 'Adapt Maths' which provides the children with a range of targets based upon a specific maths topic area. On a daily basis, this enables us to focus our teaching upon their specific needs and provides the opportunity for the children to apply their maths skills in a range of contexts. Maths coverage will include: multiplication, division, fractions, addition, subtraction, measure and statistics.

In English we will have basic skills lessons each week. The aim of these lessons is to provide the teacher with the flexibility to either introduce a new area of learning or to recap previous learning that is specific to their class requirements. The focus will be on spelling, punctuation and grammar. Text level work will include narrative sentence structure and setting description, especially developing the use of descriptive vocabulary such as noun phrases, verbs and adverbs. We will also continue the daily Letters & Sounds and phonics teaching. During each week the children will complete a carousel of activities that will include reading with their teacher and developing their comprehension skills.

Our Computing lessons this term will focus on coding.

The focus of our PE sessions will be dance and we will be working on a seaside inspired dance.

Forest School continues to be a part of our week. Class 2E will have the opportunity to develop their problem solving, teamwork and social skills in an outdoor environment. The activities will support work from across the curriculum.
