Sometimes we don't need to look far for our inspiration. Here is our very own Eva winning Gold as part of the Southwark BMX team at the London Youth Games last weekend. Even more amazing, she was only a week out of plaster, having broken a bone coming off her bike.

Year 2 Learning Overview - Summer 2 Term 2019

What are we learning?

This half term our topic theme is ‘Beachcombers’ and our learning in all subjects will be linked to this:

In computing, we will be researching information about crustaceans and creating a digital poster using the ‘Purplemash’ software.

In design technology, we will be designing and making a home for a hermit crab using clay.

In geography, we will be drawing and labelling the geographical features of a coastal scene.

In English, we will be researching and writing all about issues that affect the environment. As well as continuing our story writing, we will also be learning about how to write persuasive letters, such as one to Greenpeace, and writing all about our favourite things that have happened in Year 2, to coincide with our transition work.

In mathematics, we will be consolidating all of our learning from the year – time, shape, statistics, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. We will be delving more into mathematical problem solving which will require us to bring together all of our learning.

In Mandarin, we will continue to broaden our vocabulary and extending some of learning from earlier in the year on hobbies and animals.

In Philosophy for Children (P4C), we will continue to develop our thinking skills by asking questions and making assumptions. We will be making choices based on our opinions, and respectfully listening to and responding to others.

In music, we will continue to develop our musical skills using percussion instruments, body percussion and our voices. Please ensure your child brings in their recorder every Wednesday.

In Religious Education (RE), we will be learning about how stories are used in religion to share a message.

This half term, we will be working on a ‘Let’s Play’ project that will allow us to perform our end of year play. This is in association with the National Theatre.

As we will also be moving to Year 3 in September, we will also be working on transition activities, such as writing to our new teacher and explaining to the younger children how super it is in Year 2.

Key information:

Uniform:  Please ensure your child is in the correct uniform and that all items are labelled with their name.

PE Kit: Both classes have P.E on a Tuesday and a Friday Therefore please ensure that your child’s kit is in school for both of these days. Please also ensure your child’s kit is brought in on Monday and it will be returned to you after PE on Tuesday ready for the children to wear into school on Friday. The children will then change back into their uniform for the remainder of the day. Please ensure that each item is labelled with your child’s name.

Reading books, records and targets: Children read daily in school, however this may be taking place in larger groups this term; please make sure your child’s book and reading record (yellow book) books are in their bag each day. These books will be changed up to every 3 weeks depending on the text. Please read with your child daily and make a short comment in their reading record.

Overview of our home learning: Home learning is handed out weekly on a Thursday and should be returned on a Tuesday. Please remember to complete the maths homework online on Mathletics. If there are any difficulties with home learning, please see your child’s class teacher.

Thank you for all the wonderful home learning projects we have seen this year. Whatever the size or format, we really do love sharing them with the class. It has been great to see some children even making them in Early Bloomers! We will collect and share projects on week commencing Monday the 15th of July. Our topic this half term is ‘Beachcombers’, so think seaside microhabitats, seashell patterns, natural sculptures and recounts and reports on seaside towns and visits.
