Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

This term, Year 2 have been learning all about poetry. The children really enjoyed exploring the rhymes and repetition in Michael Rosen’s poem ‘The Bathroom Fiddler’. Children even wrote their own poems called “The Desk Diddler’ which was all about a messy desk in the classroom. In Geography, children have been learning to locate the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. In Computing lessons, children have been learning to input algorithms with the BeeBots. Children have understood that the input for each algorithm must be correct for the BeeBot to move through the maze. In Maths children have worked very hard all term. Children have learned to tell the time to the nearest 15 minutes. Children have also been able to compare durations of time as well as identify half, thirds and quarters in shapes and amounts.

Next term, we are going to start learning about length and height in Maths. Children will have the opportunity to use scales to read measures such as kilograms and millilitres. In English we will be writing the fictional tale ‘Building Boy’ which is about a boy who follows in his Grandma’s footsteps to becomes an architect. In Science, we will continue growing plants and vegetables in our classrooms and justifying what it is that plants need to grow. In PSHE we will be learning about keeping ourselves safe.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:

History

 

Geography
