Year 2

Anansi Spiders & Huckleberry Finns Classes

Curriculum for Autumn Term 2

This half term our topic is ‘The Christmas Truce’.

As Readers

We will continue to learn and practise our sounds in phonics using the programme ‘Letters and Sounds’. Our English text will be around the book ‘Christmas Truce’ by Hilary Robinson. During our guided reading sessions, we will become familiar with the book. We will be picking out new vocabulary, working on inference, predicting what may happen next and why, explaining what is happening and sequencing the events. Following the program of Guided reading ‘VIPERS’

As Writers

we are going to be writing a poem, a letter and a Christmas card. The children will be writing their own poem and writing letters to send. We will improve our handwriting following the Nelson Handwriting, which is a whole-school programme designed to help all children develop a confident, legible and personal handwriting style.

Key Vocabulary: Conjunctions, adverbs of time and adjectives.

As Mathematicians

We will be strengthening our counting skills. We will continue to deepen our knowledge of numbers up to 100. We will learn to count, read and write forwards and backwards from any number, count one/ten more/less, place values, to partition up 20/100, symbols ><=, using a number line. We will be learning how to add and subtract. Key Vocabulary: forwards, backwards, one/ten more/less, equal, than, numbers (up to 100), minus, take away, add, more, sum, increase, altogether, fewer, less, decrease…

As Explorers

we will explore in science plants and trees in the natural environment, taking measurements and making observational drawings. Children plant a seed and a bulb and compare them as they grow. In history, we will discover ‘War and Remembrance’ unit about this significant event in British and global history: the First World War and Remembrance Day. The children will also find out about Walter Tull, a significant individual in British history who was the first black British Army officer. The history lessons will related with our reading book ‘The Christmas Truce’.

PE

Children will have 1 hour of PE per week on Wednesday. Children must have a full PE kit in school at all times. If the children take their kit home for clubs, it must be returned the next day. Children who do not have the appropriate full kit in school are unable to take part in PE, which is an important part of the curriculum. In addition, this term children will have 1 hour of swimming on Thursdays. They will need their kit for swimming on that day.

Home Learning

Homework will be given to the children every Friday. Homework is due to be completed and handed in the following Wednesday. Some children may need encouragement and support to complete their homework at this age. Please ensure that, if it is your case, you are encouraging your children, but please, do not do the homework for them. Spellings will be given out every Friday. They are to be kept at home, reviewed daily and not handed in until the following Friday. Please, be ensure that practise can happen daily. Children should be encouraged to read daily and at least once every other day with an adult. It is also beneficial for children to play traditional games, using dice, dominos and cards, as these boost mathematical skills.
