Y2 Summer Curriculum Letter

Y2 Spring Curriculum Letter

Spring Term 1

The spring term is set to be very exciting for us in year 2. 

In English, we will be continuing our talk for writing journey with a recount and a warning story. We will build upon our learning of adverbs and conjunctions to make our writing great. 

In Maths lessons, we will explore multiplication and division methods, measurement (including length and height) as well as geometry where we will look at position and direction. We will continue to use our PowerMaths book characters to help us be the best we can be and use reasoning to explain our thinking. 

For our history topic in the first spring term, we will be exploring the first aeroplane flight. This will include learning about The Wight Brothers and their contributions to an event which changed the way we live our lives today. We will also explore our local links to flight.  

In art lessons we will explore drawing through studying Joan Miro and we will extend our computing skills. We will also be learning different balances and core stability in PE. 

There are also lots of exciting surprises along the way to look forward to throughout the term! 

Autumn Term 2021

The Autumn term in Year 2 is a busy one! We will be learning our new rules and routines in order for us to be 'The Best We Can Be'. In Theme lessons, we are going to explore our attack and defence topic: The Great Fire of London. Within this, we will look at choral singing in music, materials and their properties in science and use D&T to create our own pudding lane.  

In Maths we will be learning about Place Value and securing number recognition. We will then be focusing on the formal written methods of addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and money. We will be using Fluent in 5 each day to help improve mathematical fluency and use choral counting to help us count in 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s.  

During our Talk for Writing sessions, we will be looking at journey stories based around the story of the 'Little Red Hen'. We will use actions to learn the story, providing the children with ideas and a clear structure for their own writing. The children will have lots of opportunities to immerse themselves in the text to support them in innovating the text to create their own versions. 

Phonics will continue to be taught in Year 2 and we will use every opportunity to allow children to apply their understanding of these sounds into their writing. We will also begin to introduce the Year 2 spelling patterns too!
