Autumn 2

Welcome to Year 2’s page for Autumn 2

In this second Autumn half-term we are learning about the Great Fire Of London and our Global Theme is ‘Peace and Conflict.’

In English we will be learning about the features of non-chronological reports and will be writing a report about Forests.

In Maths, we will be focussing on addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and time.. 

In Book Study we will read Stubby, One Boy’s War and The Dark. Each Friday, we will be answering comprehension questions on an extract from a higher level book.

 

                            

 

 

Science sees us learning about Food Chains and Animals including Humans.

Our PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure that all children are in the correct PE uniform, hair is tied up and they are not wearing jewellery. The children should come to school wearing their PE uniform on PE days. 

                                          

 

Reading is one of the most important skills the children need to learn at this age. We expect the children to read their book at home each day for a short time. This needs to be written in their reading record books. The books the children are given will be read throughout the week and will be changed on Fridays                                     .    

 

On Friday we will collect in their reading record books and add the number of reads they have done to the reading challenge chart. Every time they complete 40 reads at home they get a book to keep.

 

As part of Readmore@Phillimore on Wednesdays we will be holding a library day. Children who have their book bag will be able to borrow a book for the week.
