 Welcome to Year 2.  Our topic focus this half term is  FAMOUS FOR 5 MINUTES 

 For your information a curriculum overview grid showing how this will link in with other subjects is shown below.

In our RELIGION lessons  we will start the term looking and the topic opportunities and spreading the word of God.  We then move onto a topic all about rules and thinking and reflecting about why we have rules in life and how we follow them. 


During the ENGLISH sessions this half term all our texts will focus on stories from famous authors. First of all we will look at popular Year 2 texts 'The Great Explorer' and 'The Beast' by an new author called Chris Judge.  We will them study a range of Anthony Browne texts. 

In MATHS we will continue to work on Fractions and then we will move to measure and time before ending the term recapping over previous work and focussing on adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. 

If you have any further questions about our learning in this term please call in to see the Year 2 staff at the end of the school day.
