Autumn 1 

Our first half term in Year 2 has already been a busy one! We have been busy setting ourselves new targets and goals we would like to achieve by end of Year 2. These included lots of different things from improving handwriting to winning the gymnastics competition! 

Within literacy we have been writing recounts about our summer holidays and this week we are learning and writing facts about Florence Nightingale. Within Maths we are exploring all aspects of number and have been revisiting the properties of 2D shapes. 

The children very much enjoyed supporting the Tour of Britian and had a wonderful afternoon waving their flags as the bikes cycled past! 

Autumn 2 

This half term we are preparing for Christmas and have already started rehearsing for our Christmas production. All the children are very excited to practice their parts and learn the songs. 

Within Literacy we are learning about The Great Fire of London this week and have been using facts about the event to complete some information writing. All the children have found this very interesting. 

We are continuing to develop our knowledge of money, 3D shapes and column subtraction within Maths this half term. Children are using their knowledge of partitioning to solve these calculations. 

 We are also developing our throwing and catching skills in PE and are developing skills our tennis skills with David Wise.
