Welcome to Wonderful Willows!
Any questions please don't hesitate to ask or email:
In Autumn 2, Wonderful willows are heading to the Arctic regions to explore. We will be learning about the differences between the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as learning all about the animals which you can find there.
In Literacy we will be looking at ‘Non chronological reports through our topic of ‘Life in the Freezer’. We will consider the features of non-fiction texts and will be producing our own reports about Polar Bears. We are still working on our literacy Non-negotiable of being able to spell all high frequency words correctly and making sure we are forming all letters correctly in our handwriting. Please support your child with any un-highlighted words sent home as spellings.
Year 2 will be focusing on mental calculations and will be trying to improve their fluency in recalling number facts to 10, 20 and 100. Please support your child with this, by asking them questions such as:-
What do I add to 13 to make 20? How much change would I get from 20p if I spent 5p? What do I add to 60 to make 100?
Through our topic work will be looking at the basic needs of humans and animals. We will be thinking about life-cycles, food chains and what we need in order to survive. Our big question is…
Could a Polar Bear Survive in the desert?
Welcome back to Year 2!
This term our learning will be based around the book 'The Pirates Next Door'. We will be exploring lots of learning to do with pirates, the seaside and the coast! We will also be researching the famous Pirate Blackbeard.
In writing, we will focus on always using capital letters and full stops, as well as using adjectives to extend our ideas.
In numeracy, we will be focussing on place value and addition and subtraction. We will be practising fast recall of addition and subtraction facts, as well as developing method to help us add and subtract larger numbers, by drawing pictures and diagrams to help.
Homework will be given every Wednesday, to be handed in the following Monday. Please support your child at home to complete this.
