Year 2 Learning Overview - Autumn Term 2 2018

What are we learning?

This half term our Topic Theme is ‘Towers, Tunnels and Turrets’, and our learning in most subjects will be linked to this.

As geographers, we will be learning to locate famous towers and tunnels all over the world, such as the Burj Khalifa and the Channel Tunnel, and learning how to spot these on different kinds of maps.

As historians we will be learning about significant historical events, people and places, supported by our trip to the Tower of London. We will also ask questions about the past and discuss significant events in Britain beyond our living memories.  

As scientists, we will be carrying out investigations into a variety of things such as how germs spread and the reasons why bridges are designed the way they are. We will be continuing to develop our core skills of investigation, recording and observation.

As artists and designers we will be showing our ideas and imagination through drawing, painting and sculpture. We will use exploring to find ways to make structures more stable so they are freestanding. We will also use different types of joins to create a structure and evaluate how well our designs meet the design criteria.

In addition:

In Literacy, we will be writing for many different purposes, including stories, poems and recounts. We will be using well-known stories as the basis for some of our writing. We will be continuing to learn about word classes and sentence types in our grammar sessions.

In Numeracy we will be continuing to build our understanding of number, by Mastering Numbers to 100 and multiplication and division by sharing and grouping.

In Mandarin, we will start to learn the importance of the different intonations in our pronunciation and continue to learn vocabulary and answer questions.

In Philosophy for Children (P4C), we will be using our thinking skills, asking questions and making assumptions, children will be encouraged to develop opinions and give supporting reasons. We will be using different stimulus’ to encourage thinking, such as stories, songs, poems and pictures.

In Music, we will continue to practise the recorder and learn a variety of Christmas songs for our Christmas carol concert.

Other Events:

It will be Anti-Bullying Week the week beginning 12/11/18. Children will be discussing what bullying is and what they can do if they or others are being bullied.

The week beginning 19/11/18 will be Road Safety Week.  We will be finding out about the risks of the road and what we can do to stay safe as the evenings get darker.

Our Christmas carol concert will be held on 18/12/18 at 2pm and on 19/12/18 at 9:30am.   We hope you can be there to celebrate with us.
