This term we will be very busy learning lots of new things. Here is some information about the things that we will be getting up to but you can find detailed information on all subjects by downloading the 'Curriculum Information for Parents' that is attached below. 



Our English lessons will use the texts ‘The Bog Baby’ and ‘Grandad’s Island’ . We will explore these texts and use them as a focus for our writing.
The outcomes will be:
- To write a finding narrative
- To write a set of instructions
- To write a return narrative
- To write an informative piece about jungle animals

. Grammar and punctuation skills will be taught throughout these units with a focus on:
- Use of capital letters, full stops and question marks and exclamation marks to demarcate sentences.
- Using apostrophes to mark where letters are missing in spelling. 
- Using apostrophes to mark singular possession in nouns
- Use commas to separate items in a list.

Our Reading lessons use the Steps to Read scheme and these are some of the books that we will be using this term... 


Our Maths lessons will focus on learning the objectives from The National Curriculum. We will try to cover objectives in most areas of the Maths Curriculum to prepare for the end of term test. These objectives are on our overview.  On a Monday our lesson will focus on times tables and on a Friday our focus will be arithmetic.

Everyone in Year 2 is given a reading book to read at home, sometimes this is a levelled book, an eBook or a book for you to read for pleasure. Practising the common exception words, spelling rules and times tables is something that we expect you to do too. 

Homework books that focus on SATS skills including comprehension and mathematics can be purchased from school - these are optional and will be given out on a Friday to be returned the following Monday.
