Learning in Year Two this half term:


In English we will be looking at different poems and the images they create, creating our own poems and reading them aloud. We will also be looking at non-fictional texts on ‘the making of chocolate’ and dinosaurs. Finding out about different dinosaurs, the work of palaeontologists and writing our own informative texts and poetry about dinosaurs. Within the English covered we will continue with grammar sessions on: adjectives, verbs and comparatives and 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 division and fractions. We will also be learning to tell the time. With Mrs Kitson your child will be learning about geometry; shape and position.


In Science we are learning about plants and animals- related to our dinosaur topic-sorting and classifying and observing closely.


In RE we are learning about ‘Salvation’ and the importance of Easter for Christians.

Our Topic this half term is ‘Dinosaur Planet’.


Stomp, crash, roar! Watch out – there are dinosaurs about! Yes, that’s right, we’re travelling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. This half term, we’ll look closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out. We’ll learn about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning, and follow in her footsteps, studying dinosaur teeth and bones to find out what dinosaurs liked to eat. Learning dinosaur names, creating puzzling riddles, writing fantastic fact files and creating exciting dinosaur stories are some of the other activities we’ll be involved in this half term. We’ll also use our artistic skills to make model dinosaurs and to design dinosaur landscapes
