Welcome to Year 2


Welcome back year 2!

This term we will be continuing to learn about ‘People from the Past’. We will be finding out how to ask and answer questions from the past and discover what life was like then. We are looking forward to learning about how people have impacted the world that we live in today!

In Year 2 our International Mindedness country for our topic ‘People of the Past’ is The United States of America! We have explored various influential figures which originate from the USA and will be understanding their impact on the world. We can’t wait to learn about how these figures encouraged others around the world to make a change!



In English this term we will be focusing on the book ‘Lila and the Secret of Rain’ by David Conway. We will be using the book to inspire our own writing which will include poetry, diary entries and newspaper reports! We will be using lots of description in our writing!



In maths we will be looking at measurement. We will be exploring how to measure using millilitres, litres, kilograms and grams and use our understanding of the four operations to solve problems. We are also going to explore time and how we can tell it to the hour, half past, quarter past and quarter to.



Our Science topic will be focusing on what we have learnt throughout Year 2. We will be revisiting each topic to consolidate our learning and explore any other questions that we have.   



Please find below the homework menu for this half term.  Homework is set on a Friday and is due in on Wednesday every week.
