This week we have been reviewing multiplication and division and practicing
Welcome to the summer term in Year two.
We have lots planned this half-term and have already started exploring the properties of 2D shapes and the 'Great Britons'. The children enjoyed taking turns to retrieve objects from the mystery box. They all gave clues hinting at a famous 'Great Briton'. The objects included a bucket, a rat, an old map of London, some coded writing, a bottle of HP sauce, a model of an old fashioned, horse-drawn fire fighting cart and a large wedge of parmesan cheese!
Can you guess who the famous figure might be?
Spring Term 1
The title for this half term is Mission Survival!
The children will be learning about an endangered animal, where it lives, what it needs to survive and why it is under threat. They will discover what they can do to help protect this animal as well as animals where they live. If they can produce some really persuasive writing the children might even get to adopt an endangered animal!
Children will continue to use the reading scheme this half term. They will have the opportunity to change their books by themselves (with a little adult supervision!) as often as they are ready to. When children are ready to change book bands, they just need to have this checked by an adult.
Children will continue with daily phonics sessions. This half term we will be concentrating on learning spelling rules in phase 6. They will also be learning the Year 2 common exception words. The children will be bringing home a spelling book with these words in the back and will have to learn a few each week as part of their homework.
Weekly homework will consist of reading, spelling and Maths. Spelling words to learn and Maths homework will be set each Monday, to be completed by the following Monday. Spellings will also be tested on Mondays. There will also be some longer projects based on our topic work.
PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The children will be having a dance session with a specialist dance teacher each Tuesday during this half term. Children need to have their indoor and outdoor kit with them, especially with our current changeable weather!

Autumn Term 1 2017
The title for this half term was Once Upon a Time. We used Fairy Tales to inspire the children’s imaginations before looking at Castles and Medieval history in Norwich and the rest of the UK. The children mapped locations, tested materials and tried out medieval food and sports.
Autumn Term 2
Our topic for this half term was "All Around the World". The children travelled the world through stories from different countries. They learned about the physical features of each country they visited and produced some writing for different purposes based on what they found out.
