Learning in Year Two this half term:

 

In English we will be looking at information leaflets and creating one all about Year 2 for the Year 1 parents and children. We will also be revisiting ‘Maximus and the Bean stalk’. We will also be studying ‘Christopher Nibble’ by Charlotte Middleton and creating labels and instructions for looking after plants. Within the English covered we will continue with grammar sessions on: tenses, verbs and suffixes. Your child has a writing target-ask them if they know what it is for this half term.

 

In Maths we will be securing our learning on multiplication and division and learning about capacity. In Science we are learning about plants related to our scented garden topic-growing our own ‘pizza garden’ and investigating the different parts of flowering plants and their uses.

 

In RE we are continuing to learn about the Jewish religion and making comparisons to Christianity.

Our Topic this half term is ‘The scented garden’

 

Let’s tiptoe through the tulips together and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the garden. This half term, we’ll find out how to look after plants, ask the experts questions and appreciate the flowers. We’ll write an information book about plants, follow instructions, enjoy the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and write stories of our own. Discovering our green fingers will be fun when we plant and tend a pizza garden of herbs. We’ll also learn about the different parts of a plant and create our own ‘planting and growing’ action rhyme. Our senses will help us describe and sort a range of smells and we’ll make beautifully scented products. We’ll look closely at a wide variety of plants, create detailed, observational drawings and press real flowers to use in collages. At the end of our project, we will have become plant experts! We’ll create a presentation about plants, share the information books that we have made and design a fantasy garden.
