Create a Joy in Learning For Every Child

 Welcome back to the Year 2 page.

Please find below our curriculum map, this is so you can see what we are learning about through the year.


Autumn term

We started our English learning with character and setting descriptions. We used the book 'Zog' to help us with this, which is written by our Author of the Term, Julia Donaldson. This linked to our 'Troublesome Dragons' topic. We then moved on to learning about poems focused on Harvest Festival. After that, we learnt about narrative using the 'George and the Dragon' text to help us learn how to write a story. We changed the main character in the story to create our own version. 


We started the year with an exciting Sparkling Start, a dragon egg hunt in the forest! We had to find clues which then spelt out 'sweet treat' and we had a reward for completing the hunt. 


This half term our Maths learning has been on place value and addition and subtraction. We have been learning to order numbers and talk about the number of tens and ones in a number and how they can be represented in different ways. We used the part-whole model to partition numbers into tens and ones. We moved on to counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s and then used practical resources to help us add and subtract. 


Below are some photos from Elder class enjoying their sparkling start. 

Exciting events this half term have included some of us starting swimming lessons and the Harvest Festival service at the church. Below are some photos from our Harvest Festival at St Johns Church.
