Year 2

Welcome to Year Two!


This half term our class topic is 'Travel and Transport'. We will be finding out about how different transport has changed over time, from the Vikings to modern day. Our trip to 'The British Motor Museum' will give us a fantastic opportunity to experience a variety of transport first-hand and enhance our learning.


To compliment our history topic we are looking at the story 'Journey' By Aaron Becker. This is a beautifully illustrated picture book without any words. Throughout the next few weeks we will be travelling on a magical journey alongside the little girl in the story. 


Magical lanterns


We have been making magical lanterns and writing instructions to tell other people how to make them.


In Maths we are developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skils when learning about addition and subtraction. We are looking at different ways to show our thinking by using bar models, part-part-models, ten frames, number lines and dienes.


Home Learning


To support your child's learning in Maths at home:


  • Doubling single digit numbers.
  • Addition pairs to 20.
  • The 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables
  • Using money and recognising coins
  • Telling the time


To support your child's learning in English:


Please read with them every night, taking time to discuss what the story was about. Books from the library, other story books, picture books, newspapers, magazines and comics are all excellent reading materials and also provide children with the opportunity to experience different ways of writing and sharing information and also provides an alternative to their school reading book.
