Year 2 Curriculum Overview

Marvellous Mathematicians

In year 2 we are learning about lots of different types of measurements, like mass, capacity and temperature. We will also be practising things we have previously learnt this year!

 

English

This term, we are focusing on information texts. We will be writing a leaflet with advice for The Plague, an information text about nocturnal animals and a recount of our school trip to The Crocky Trail.

RE

May is the month of Our Lady. We celebrate the crowing of Our Lady, practised saying the Hail Mary and wrote our own prayers to Mary. 

June is the month of The Sacred Heart. We will be learning what the sacred heart means and why it is important. 

 

Science

In science, we are learning about planting and growing and we have planted some of our own seeds in class! Later in the term, we will be experimenting with battery powered electricity and making electrical circuits.

I

Read a book with your child for 5-10 minutes every night and sign your child's reading diary.

Each Friday your child will get spellings for a spelling test the following Friday. 

Your PE days are Wednesday and Friday so come wearing your PE kit on these days. 

Bring a water bottle each day.
