In science, we will learn about seasonal changes. We will be visiting Dudley Zoo on 3rd May 2017 to learn about animals and habitats linked to seasonal changes.

We will continue to learn about e-safety and develop our ability to communicate clues, collaborate with others and understand programming.

For maths, we will focus on place value, addition & subtraction, measures, doubling and halving, multiplication and division. Children need to learn their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables.

Our English focus is on writing narratives and letters. The children will write about their own and others’ experiences, using past and present tenses correctly plus suffixes, contractions and the correct punctuation.

Our Festival of Culture will be celebrated on the 5th May.

Autumn 2 2016

Dear Year 2 Parents

During our topic lessons this half term we will look at why we remember the

5th November and this will include a visit to Blakesley Hall to learn about Guy Fawkes. We will also find out about Joseph Chamberlain, who was a significant person in our locality.

In science, we will learn about the properties of materials. We will compare man-made and natural materials and also investigate which materials are magnetic and which are waterproof.

We will continue to learn about e-safety and develop our programming skills using iPads.

For maths, we will use all the different vocabulary for reasoning linked with multiplication and division and we will use this knowledge to solve problems. We will double and halve numbers and measure length, find different positions and directions as well as continue with our work on addition and subtraction.

Our English focus is on writing diaries linked to our topic work on Guy Fawkes and Joseph Chamberlain. We will also do some poetry and narratives linked to the Christmas story in RE.

Parents’ reading sessions with their child are held on Tuesday afternoons at 3.00pm. We hope to see you there!

Regards.
