Learning in Year Two this half term:

 

In English we are reading fairy stories. Finding out information about woodland animals and writing our own informative texts. Within the English covered we will continue with grammar sessions on: nouns, verbs, different types of sentences and coordinating sentences. Your child has a writing target-ask them if they know what it is for this half term.

 

In Maths we are continuing to learn about money, multiplication and division and fractions. With Mrs Kitson your child will be learning about data handling, shape and position.

 

In Science we are learning about plants and animals; sorting and classifying.

 

In RE we are learning about ‘The Gospel’ and the Good News that Jesus brings.

 

Our Topic this half term is ‘Enchanted woodland’.

If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise! This half term, we’ll visit a woodland on the 15th of January at Nell Bank, observe the wildlife, collect natural objects and take beautiful pictures of the things we see. After our woodland adventure, we’ll write about our experiences and learn all about trees. We’ll use information books to investigate woodland creatures and make mini-books of our own. Throughout the project, we will find out how to recognise different plants and animals and create detailed, observational drawings of them. The tale of Hansel and Gretel will inspire us to write our own stories with a woodland theme. We’ll build miniature dens, create woodland works of art and construct mini-woodlands from twigs, sticks, pine cones and leaves. At the end of our project, we’ll have so much to share with you. We’ll read and display our stories and create a woodland art gallery. See above for topic homework ideas.
