Welcome to the Summer Term. This term we are extremely busy in Year 2. Our topic is ‘Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!’ We will be focusing on looking at beaches and seaside around the world and comparing them to places in Great Britain. We will also be looking at Seasides holidays in the past.
For our maths this term will be revisiting place value, multiplication, division, shape, position and direction knowledge to ensure that these objectives are embedded using the WhiteRose Scheme of work. Children will also need to know their 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables by the time they leave Year 2.
Homework will be set every Friday on Teams. This will either be English, Maths or Topic work and spellings. Homework will be handed in the following Wednesday and the children will have a spelling test each Friday.
Writing to entertain –
- Seaside poetry
- Setting description of the seaside
Writing to inform –
- Instruction writing – how to make a puppet.
- Fact file about a sea creature
We like to make sure every child has the opportunity to read with their teacher, at least once a week but are expected to read at home everyday. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.
This term we will be designing and making puppets as part of our DT topic.
